100% Competitor. (He couldda been a contenda)

Jeff Stehney, Olley Gates, etc. are BBQ Professionals.

Even with Sponsors, I would submit I am an amateur - an Enthusiast -Professional no, but an avid competitor.

Jeff- Just something to think about... But I would usually not use that term in talking with sponsors. My sponsors know I am there with my wife, girls, a dog, and who knows what else. It is a "sport" with lots of eyes on it, it is a marketing play. There are alot of reasons to sponsor me, but not because I'm a professional :)
