I am not talking smack in any way.
Good get yourself out there we'd love to have you join the cooks.

I think I would be more inclined to do this if the turn in times were the same and the judges were the same and we could get scored next to he big dogs.
Turn in times are different especially at the majority of contests as the backyard division is run by the organizers and not but the sanctioning body, the judges for the main event are the sanctioning bodies responsibility, the backyard and kids que are often certified judges too, but those contests are not run by the sanctioning body as they charge for the privilege!

I guess then some would say basically it is a 2 meat turn in main event and so maybe there should be a special entry fee for those that want to do that instead of the backyard category.
See what happens when I go to thinking.
The easiest method of getting what you want on this deal is come out and cook the two of the four meats you want to cook as a pro division cook, but please let folks know that you're only planning on cooking 2 out of 4, because if you are included in the Pro division and they are counting on you to make the contest a qualifier, if you join the Pro division and then don't cook the 4 meats you can drop it from a qualifier to not being a qualifier, and folks aren't fond of that happening!
Respice, adspice, prospice. Latin proverb.
Respice = you didn't use enough spice the first time! adspice = you ought to add spice, you know? prospice = you should be an advocate for spice!
