:welcome
Greenwood is a KCBS contest so the competetors might not have samples to offer, I haven't been to that one yet so I'm not sure. Some contests have a peoples choice, and others will have teams vending so you are likely to have top quality BBQ available.

As far as the WSM or BGE. The BGE is a more efficent smoker and can get higher temps at the cooking grate and maintain them for a longer amount of time. The negitives is they are very heavy and cost 3 - 4 times as much as a WSM. The WSM (my choice, I own 3) is still a very effecient smoker, vastly more portable and if you look around you can pick 4 up for the cost of 1 LG BGE. Also if you wish to compete you will need special equipment or many extra hands to move BGEs around. The WSM can be moved around by one person quite easily. I have done a full 4 catagory KCBS contest on 2 WSMs but 3 work much better.

I'm in Darlington, SC and a Weber Genesis with the smoker trey. I'd like to get a "real" smoker and am considering an egg or WSM.

I'm going to my first contest this weekend in Greenwood--just attending, not competing. I'm not really sure what to expect. Will I be able to get any competition BBQ if I'm not judging? Do the teams that are competing typically cook as vendors as well? Will any of you guys be there?

Happy to be here!
Christian
Hiya Christian welcome to the group. Ya cant go wrong with a WSM I have 2 and am planning on adding 2 more down the line.
Well you are always welcome in our pit anytime ya want at a event our next one to compete is in Abbeville October 12th-13th. Niki and I will be judging Smoke on the Beach , most events sell the pork as a fundraiser so you can buy some , my team and I sample the Q before it gets put in the turn in box. Never done any vending yet but thats a possibility.
