Hey Poke! I would say most of the time a team wont let you "join" there group...people dont like to share there secrets for competition haha.

Ive found a bunch of people on here though that wanted to join up and/or help out from time to time so you might be in luck.

I would say also dont be afraid to start doing competitions by yourself. That's how i got started. Well i would atleast bring a friend along whether they knew what they were doing or not, an extra set of hands go along way and it can be lonely tending a smoker for 12 hours by yourself.

But doing all 4 categories on your really gives you an appreciation for the sport, whats involved in it from prep to cooking and cleaning, and practice! 

Good luck!

Another tip,

If there are kcbs comps in your area , post up on their site that you are available to help any traveling teams. Lot's of teams can't bring their whole crew across the country for a comp due to the cost . Volunteer to help even if it's just minding a pit .
