No points that I know of in back yard cook-offs. But, I can understand your frustration. No back yard events in our area so we jumped in head first. I think it is great that you want to participate in this crazy sport. Advice we were given when we first started was to buy some cook books (this was before cooking schools)and practice, practice, practice. Know your pit and what it does in different weather. Keep a log book of what you do. Follow the time lines of the cook off schedule so that you can produce the same product at the cook-off. Failing that, there are many cooking schools offered or you might see if you can judge a few contests to see what others are turning in and see where you product measures up.
