I actually just teamed up with a buddy of mine. We were both competing separately, and we both took Travis Clark's class back in March. After doing one comp separately after the class, we decided to go partners and split costs. We are doing the same process/meats/injections/sauces/etc. so it just made sense. Plus, with work schedules it makes it so that one of us can go set up and the other can join in after work on Friday. We usually don't travel far for comps and mainly compete in IBCA.


I already had memberships in IBCA and KCBS, so I'm the official head cook. We take turns running comps, though. If he's running the comp, he's walking at awards and vice versa. We changed our team name to reflect the smokers we cook on (we both cook on Shirley Fabrication smokers). Since teaming up, we've done two comps and finished 5th and 3rd overall in those comps. That's probably more testimony of Travis' class, though, than our partnership.
