You will have a blast, and meet some really cool folks. We can't post links to other sites here, so I can't help you alot, but there are alot of sites that are geared more towards competition cooking. You will get information overload at some of them. I have done 4 of them now, and each one gets better and better. about 10 days ago, I cooked at one with my good friend Richtee.http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/f...9sleepyboy.jpg
Hmmm, I see downloading pics has changed somehow?
Since he did such a good job keeping an eye on the cooker we did get a walk.http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/f...leribbon09.jpg
Read the KCBS rules a couple times. At the cooks meeting they will ask you if you want a mentor(to help you get it figured out), tell them yes, it is free and most teams enjoy doing it. Don't dispute their advice, listen , watch, and learn. Most of all, enjoy the people, and the friendly competition. Take and keep notes, and pics, let us know how you like it.
I plan on doing all the michigan events except the Auburn hills one. I have a grad party to cook for that day.
