I have a friend who goes to a lot of comps here. If its not pouring down rain Im going with him on the 16th and 17th. He has been trying to get me to go for the last 3 yrs now. Im going as a hand to see how things operate and whats expected. This is happening in rendon tx at a place called Hoots. The event is being sponsored by Lone Star BBQ association. If all goes well the following weekend he has another one in Irving Tx and Im going also. Want to try a couple before going on my own. Im excited and kinda nervous but looking forward to having a good time and learning something new, will post pics, wish me luck.
