TQ- I was the same way about comp cooking, but my wife suggested I look into it. So I went to a comp with Smokin Franks, and now I am planning to try it out myself next year!
I did notice that this could become a very expensive hobby tho!
I'm sure those here that do comps will welcome you any time. That is what I found unique about comp, very few secrets, its all about good times and good food!
