I've put together a comp team and am doing a few months of research before we compete including taking the KCBS judging class in New Holland, PA tomorrow and attending some upcoming comps in the area. My fellow teammates (non eggers) and I did some practice last weekend with ribs and have brisket, butt and chicken weekend practice sessions planned before we do a whole dry run with all four.
We want to do our best, but we're much more in it for the fun, camaraderie and bbq tips along way. Any general tips on starting out are welcomed. I've done a lot of research, so I think I've got a lot down about what to expect, but I'm sure as with anything new and of this magnitude, there are some things you just can't prepare for. And no, I'm not fishing for secrets.
