The "roadmap" in our comp section is a great place to learn lessons from folks who have been there and done that (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=13677).

Hook up with an established team and offer to wash their dishes and be their do-boy for a few contests in exchange for the opportunity to learn. That will give you a start.

Mark your boxes and bribe judges.

Seriously, just keep practicing and go to sanctioned contests. Except for giving you a piece of meat, most teams will share everything they have if you need and all are willing to talk BBQ with you. They will give you ideas and suggestions. Just don't be presumptuous enough to ask for their recipes.

Opposite of asking I have found just lurking on this and a few other boards very helpful. A lot of stuff is just slipped into the posted comments.

Just follow the old rule: The louder someone says it the less you need to hear it.

Keep an open mind. What you and your family think are great may not relate to the general public, Trial and error, asking, listening, adjusting (Small adjustments), trusting the Brethren for answers, relaxing and doing what you do best!!

That's it!!
