    I would like to ask for some help from all who have competition experience.  I am entering my first contest in September, so I hope to get plenty of practice over the summer.  Some questions I have:

    1.    What size brisket and butts should I be using?

    2.    Should I plan on the brisket and butts being ready well before turn in and just foil and keep in cooler?

    3.   Should I consider injection or marinades?  I have not done this, but in reading online, it looks like alot of people do this.

    4.   Do I need to sauce the pork and brisket?

    Thank you for the help.
