Default Do any of yall do comps on back to back weekends?

We have 2 local comps coming up in October. I would love to do both but feel like competing back to back like that would just be to much. I feel like the first comp would be fine but to do another one the very next weekend and working in between would just be to much strain and ultimately make my end product suffer. How many of y'all do it or have done it and what's your thoughts

All 3 of our local comps are consecutive weeks this year....I'm thinking it's going to be a bit much but the choice was either drive really far, do less comps, or suck it up and go 3 in a row.

We did Oconomowoc last weekend, Whitewater this weekend...and I'll let you know how dead I am after Grafton in 2 weeks.

Giddyup!

I've got 4 in a row. Lots of people do a lot more than that. I actually usually do better. Ya just get in the groove and stay organized. I've got 6 comps worth of chicken trimmed and frozen. Just gotta stay ahead of the game and have things prepped.

We've done back to back, and actually feel like it gets "easier" as you go along...
You get in a groove.

We're doing 4, maybe 5 in a row in August.

It is pretty easy once you get a plan down.

Sunday: Make sauces, injections, brines, etc.
Monday: Buy/trim pork and ribs, trim brisket
Tuesday: Buy chicken, garnish and any other supplies at grocery store, trim chicken
Wednesday: Pack trailer and go through final checklist
Thursday: Put brisket in fridge to thaw for next week

I do three and four in a row often but never in August! The August heat is a killer in Texas!!

At the end of May we had competitions 13 of the next 16 weekends or something absurd like that with there being stretches of 4 - 5 in a row...We are on number 3 in a row this weekend and next weekend we will be vending as well as competing...

I think it is easier when they are back to back. You get a routine with your week down. Plus you leave everything you can loaded in the trailer. Bring what you need to bring into the house, clean, re-fill etc. I think it is harder when you have a stretch in the middle without competitions. Just my opinion. Just do it! You only live once and you can sleep when you are dead!

The most in a row this year is 16. The hardest part is keeping all the little things in inventory. Then there is the contest where you you wonder where your 15 packs of injection went, then it dawns on you that this is number 16.
I can say it has helped me become a lot more consistent.

I think I liked them! Gutton for punishment...

Quite a few times now. Two coming up in July that are back to back. Even different ruling bodies.

^^^^^This right here^^^^^

I've been known to compete on back to back weekends on occasion, and as others have pointed out, I think it's actually easier the second weekend than the first.

We're right there with Hot Wachula's, we've done 16 in a row, twice I think, and 10-12 in a row many times over the last 5 years or so.....

You get into a groove and it becomes automatic. You need to be organized like above and be sure not to forget anything. Thankfully Dan H. is a master logistician and planner......
