Checkout the Competition roadmap section (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=13677) which has some great advice for first timers including checklists for your first contest (what you need to bring), tips for different categories, and mistakes made by many of us at our first contests.

Also a great way is to find a local team and offer to help them do a comp. 'pittbitch' is common term for it. You'll basically do whatever odd stuff they need done, but it will give you great on hand experience and a real feel for the pace of a competition.

All great suggestions, but the best bang for the buck initially is to find an experienced team and pitch in for a contest.

Take a class offered by one of BBQ's superstars (Mike Davis, Chris Lilly, Myron Mixon, Johnny Trigg & Rod Gray, Dr. BBQ, Paul Kirk, etc). It will cut your competition learning curve by years! Well worth the money!
