Default Partially Competing

I think it is allowable, but is it brethrenly to only cook two of four meats at a comp. I want to do my first comp but not be completely overwhelmed the first time.

Your first time out you should only cook what you are comfortable cooking. My first time out I was only going to cook chicken and ribs, but got talked into cooking pork and brisket as well by one of the organizers and haven't looked back since. If you get a price break on the entry fee to only enter two categories then go for it. If you have to pay the full entry fee, you might as well take a shot at the other two.

Since KCBS events rarely give you a discount for cooking less than 4 meats, I'd go for it. If you don't want to take on more than two, I'd suggest finding another person who is willing to do them on a separate cooker. Just split the entry fee down the middle and you each cook your own 2-entry contest. Whoever's entry gets a call keeps the loot!

I did my 1st comp last year and did darn good. I did the comp with no help it was just me and I was my own box runner. Did all 4 meats 50 some teams I think and ribs were my best that day 6 over all and the other meats were all in the top 20.

I advice go for it get a time sheet and stick to it. Do a few practice runs at home 1st and have fun.

OK, none of this "diary of a wimpy Q'er" stuff. I'm going for it. Thanks for the vote of confidence!

90% of the time I compete solo. PM me with e-mail address and I'll send you my comp timeline. It will give you an idea of how times work with no help and may help you create your own timeline.

I'd cook the pork and the brisky and skip the chicken and ribs! The big meats are much easier and forgiving than the chicken especially. Go for it. Get a time line together and you can do it.

I had this same thought, only cooking two meats, for my first competition. I've since decided to jump in and go for it... 4 meats, no experience, too much information(thanks to this site) and one tempermental offset smoker. We shall see what happens...

I think it's a great idea. You probably won't win grand champion your first time out. No need to spend that much money on first cook. My first comp I only entered ribs and pork and placed second in pork.

Lets just say you are one of only 25 teams registered for a qualifying event (Jack draw-American Royal) and you only cooked 2 meats and did not bother to turn in the others. I'm pretty sure that the event would be declared a non qualifier.

And if a Brethren was the overall GC and was competing for a shot at one of those events, that would be a chitty thing to happen IMO. Better to turn in all 4 meats or stay home.

I don't think this comment is the best way to promote/grow competition bbq. If someone is just starting out and doesn't want to cook everything then they shouldn't feel like they have to or they will be shunned by the bbq community especially because there is nothing in the rules that says only entering a few meats is not allowed.

I'm not sure if what you stated about it could potentially declare an event a non qualifier is true or not, but even if it is "all the stars would have to align" for this to occur. And even then if it did occur would the one time a year it might happen be worth telling lots of new teams they shouldn't compete in a few categories because it is "bad taste" or however you want to phrase it and then have all those teams not begin competing?

Just seems silly.

If you cooked your big meats earlier then normal, you could let them rest for 3-4 hours, giving you plenty of time to worry about ribs and chicken.
