Cooked with 18 Teams in Mineral Wells Tx last weekend
Got my first top 5 in brisket (3rd) and 5th (wife cooked) in ribs on the BSK.
Cooked a prime brisket for the first time so that probably helped.
Also cooked a second place chicken on my small WSM and the wife and I got our first Reserve Grand Championship.  Trying out some of my recipe changes in a much bigger cook off in Keller, Tx this weekend to see if I have really improved my brisket.

Nice job! Are you injecting your brisket? I just did my first comp and finished in the 2nd half of 40 teams in brisket.  Need some help here! Shocked

Yes, I inject my brisket with Butcher's BBQ injection.  No big secret since a whole slew of competition cookers use his stuff.  Some make their own injection and some us Kosmo's injection.  Makes a huge difference in the moisture retention.  Some sort of chemical magic.

Well we bombed at Keller.  No top 10 calls (except for 9th in beans).  Got a final table in brisket (top 16 of 44 teams) but that's about it.

Trying again this weekend at the Trader's Village, Grand Prairie IBCA(International BBQ Cookers Association) cook off.  This is their annual "added money" cook off. If an IBCA member gets a top 15 call in any meat IBCA adds extra money to the standard payout.  Bottom line - last year 12th place ribs earned $250. First place in any meat usually gets you $900 - $1,000.

Worth a shot.  I will let you know how we do.

I wouldn't say you bombed, those are decent scores.  You probably already know that comp. scores are not exact and are almost random from comp to comp. Placing consistently well is the trick.  You can expect the bigger prize money will bring out the top dogs for competition, but I'm sure you'll do fine. Let us know how it goes.
