Default First Comp Goals

Obviously I would like to win the hole thing, but that is not a realistic goal. What do you all think I should shoot for?

Seriously, getting everything turned in on time, not getting a DQ, and turning in something that you can live with are reasonable goals. Learn from the first one and raise the bar on the second. Being able to walk the next day is a bonus

There were 26 teams in the first competition we entered. Our running joke was that we just wanted to finish in the top 25.

Have fun with it. We did and we ended up taking first in chicken and 6th overall. Turn in time can be stressful, but it isn't the end of the world.

Just do your best and you will probably surprise yourself with the results.

Having fun should be first on your list. Keep your cool under pressure and get things in on time. I had someone keeping track of the time for me and it helped like no other.

No go get everyones money!!

Maybe I'm a little different, but I go with the intentions of winning. I take it pretty seriously and still fun every time. Of course, we haven't won a GC... YET!

Don't take it too serious. Meet and greet all your neighbors, relax, and just shoot for turning in something that makes YOU proud.

As a newcomer myself, our first contest we just wanted to get all entries turned in and no DQ's. We finished 41 out of 63 overall. Our second comp the goal was to improve on all categories. We improved every category and got our first walk (6th place chicken) and finished 13 out of 56 and raised our overall scores from 598.2854 up to 637.7140.

Next time out we plan to get into the top ten but like everyone said the most important thing is to have fun and not stress out over the small things. Remember, were talking about BBQ
