Default Doing our first competition this weekend

Scared as hell. I do catering and everyone just gives us all kinds of compliments at each job - but this is different stuff.

It ought to be interesting - any tips?

Have fun. Enjoy it. Make the turn-in boxes fairly early so that the meat goes in them
warm/hot just before you hand it in. Then, have fun. ;-)

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Just visited your website and was really impressed. I really don't think you will have anything to worry about but since I have never done a real competition I really don't know. Looks to me like you really have it going on. Next time I go through Kentucky I'll have to look you up.

Like everyone else said, JUST HAVE FUN. Talk with the other teams. I have never met a team that would not help you with what ever they can. Everyone always has a suggestion.

It's all about the timing of the cooking and the turn in.
If you can do catering, my guess is this will be a breeze for you.
Enjoy it.

Default Advice from a compitition newbie

I've only done three comps, and have learned a lot from all of them... here's a few things I learned...

Talk to your neighbors, ask questions, offer them samples of your food... they are some of the best resources you'll find.

Although you started out with sharp knives, make sure you bring a sharpening stone.

Install a big clock in your cooking area... man does that help!

Write down everything you do, the notes are so valuable for your next comp.

Make sure your tables are high enough for you to comfortably work on without hunching over them. Ohhh my poor back!

Restrict your adult beverage intake... it makes you sleepy and "unattentive".

Bring rain gear... ya' never know.

Lights, cameras, hose and electric cords... bring 'em

Never trust a fart. Nuff said.

Oh, and HAVE FUN!!!!
