And a couple more additions and corrections

Master series are always chicken, ribs, pork and brisket, and can include additional categories based on the organizer's desires
Additional categories are called Ancillaries and do not count for GC or RGC. They do have there own payout schedule.

Competitor series can include the traditional categories, but can also include non-standard categories. One that we did last fall had chicken, ribs and anything goes, and all counted towards the GC.
Competitors series allow BY to compete head to head with Pro.
(For the BY team this counts as Pro contest, see below for more info)

For Backyard there is a limit to the number of master series comps that you can cook in before you are no longer eligible for backyard. Double check the KCBS site for those details.

All of these cover Head Cook or Assistant Cook (ie a team member).
If you have ever won a Masters (GC or an RGC), your a Pro
If you have competed in more than 12 Master contests (regardless of time frame) your a Pro.
If you have competed in 4 or more Master or Competitors series in the same year your a Pro.
If you have not competed in more than a year with any team as an assistant or head cook, you can revert to Backyard by petitioning the board. "Individuals who feel they have extenuating circumstances may appeal to the KCBS Sanctioning committed or their designee for reconsideration as a backyard cook."

AND THE BIG ONE: Backyard TOY is a fact as of 1/1/2020

November 2019 KCBS Board Quick Notes:
Myron Berry: I move to Approve TOY Points on Chicken and Ribs for Backyard Teams with The KCBS CEO to Work through the Points System Structure to Be Effective January 1, 2020
