Good luck and have fun.

John, A competition to me is doing how ya do things at home.

Just keep a cool head, do what you do well and run with it.

Good Luck and keep us posted. You will do just fine.

Let's see, first time out doin it myself. Going up against people like Ray(DrBBQ), Kevin(HomeBBQ.com), Jimmy(Smokin Cracker), Myron(Jack's Old South), etc, etc, etc............Snowball comes to mind and I'm already in Florida. Don't get much hotter....

I'll cut my teeth in the backyard and maybe eventuallyA(if the wife lets me) move into the pros after awhile. Heck, look how long it took me to finally go out and do it myself.

What's there to lose competing against these guys? If you get buried by them, you know you got beat by the best of the best, so no shame there. If you hang with them or maybe beat some of them in a category or two, you have one heck of a moral victory (if not a real one).

The backyard division is not a bad concept to get your feet wet. You compete with all of the same rules and your entries get judged with the pro teams at the same time. You get scored seperately.

Those guys all put there aprons on the same way. Get off the porch and run with the big dogs, that way you know where you stand. That's what I did my first comp, last weekend. Finished 10th out of 34 teams, with room for improvement, in Libertyville IL Go ahead the waters fine.

John, Good luck, the backyard is a great way to get your feet wet. Have fun and just do your best, I'll bet you'll be surprised! But most of all, enjoy yourself.

Good luck! You'll do great! A couple of things that we learned after our first couple of contests...

1. Do a practice run at home. Set up just as you would at the comp and then keep notes on what you forgot to "bring" with you and also notes on what you didn't need.

2. Get a cheap white board or chalk board and work out a schedule. We work backwards from turn in so that we know when we want to fire up the cooker, season the meat, etc.

3. The organizers should have an official clock that you can synchronize your clock to. Do it. It would be a shame to put all of the effort into a meat and then miss the turn in window

4. Have Fun!

Got myself one of those Atomic Clocks from Sam's Club. So far every event I've been to, that was the clock they were using. Hopefully it'll sync up the same with there's.
