Nice clean setup, JD. Are those road cases for your WSM's? Very Nice

From our first comp this year (and 3rd overall) to our second comp, I was able to eliminate about 30% of the crap we brought. It also took us 1/2 the time to pack! I made a checklist eerily similar to yours Greg and I'm still refining it and eliminating more stuff. The checklist is a must to make sure you dont forget the essentials and I really like how you organized by storage location (which I did as well), made packing the van a breeze last time out. Best of luck!

JD, very nice, organized and clean.............my goal! I think that second tent will be key. I already got some ideas. I may just pitch the tent in the backyard and try out some ideas. I need to be more streamlined.......I need to fit everything into a Ford Freestyle..............cash for clunkers pryed my beloved, but well beat Ford F-150 out of my clutches.........I still miss it! My brother brought some stuff, but I need to be self sufficient just in case he can't make an event.

One other thing that I notice from many teams, including yours is the use of PVC pipe to extend the table legs. I keep forgetting that detail........it would really be a back saver! Next time!

Thanks!

Marking the storage locations is key to a quick inventory. I even took pictures showing how I loaded the smoker with stuff. It's amazing how much stuff is on that list. We have a lot of family that shows up at the events, so we need to bring extra stuff like plates, cups, forks, buns, extra pop and lots of lawn chairs. There's probably an extra storage box just for this stuff...........but it's worth it.

Thanks,

Thanks,
That is a lot of stuff... I dont think we could fit all of that in Bubba's trailer and my truck
