And I did put some shelves etc inside my trailer and set my tents up in such a way that the trailer becomes a crucial part of the setup. So outside of carrying my tents and chairs off the trailer most everything else rolls off the trailer, or stays on the trailer or stays on the back of my truck. It has helped a bunch in making things easier and more fun and organized.

I also need to edit myself some because I have too much stuff with me every time, but I canít help thinking in a worst case scenario I may need that. Lol.
Yes indeed. I've done many comps and worked so hard just setting up and breaking down that it became discouraging. The last comp I did my focus was on streamlining my setup and becoming more efficient/productive in the actual cooking and prep. Trailer was organized, outside was a minimum of only what I needed as if I were there by myself and overall it cut down on so many distractions. No coincidence that I placed in 2 of 3 categories with brisket as high as 4th. Kind of reminds me of what a golf instructor told me once. He said "good golf is boring golf". Routine and a disciplined approach every single shot might be boring but your score will benefit.
