Default Getting snobbish about our BBQ

I've read many different threads over the years about how folks now know what truly good BBQ is and the techniques used to make and server quality Q and then get disgusted with others who boil ribs or cook crock-pot butts, or dont want to eat at restaurants any longer, etc.

I then read this today:

David made a friend rather than an enemy. They became "brethren".

I would suggest that you consider how short life is and whether arguing over this is better than that is worth making an enemy over making a friend.

BBQ, enjoy it, and embrace other's ideas even if you know they're wrong.

JMHO.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

There is no wrong way, just different ways. And if you like it, it's good BBQ.

I hear ya!

I think a lot of arguing about BBQ is lighthearted smack talk, but it can get silly. If it tastes good, I'll eat it - I don't care how it got there!

I think food is only a part of BBQ. The gathering of friends and loved ones, as well as making new friends, is a huge part of the deal IMO.

I've lived this way for the last few years. I went to Alaska in the 70's and always wanted to go back. Seven guys I knew died in one year and that changed my way of thinking. So I went back and had a ball. My sister had cancer and they gave her less than a year well she only made it a few weeks so now everyday is lived to the fullest. I will never sweat the small things in life Thanks for the reminder though.

I'm no competitor so for me BBQ is all about cooking for friends and family, and if I'm lucky I made some good Q, but it's the process for me that I enjoy. The good food is a bonus. There's nothing better than someone complimenting my Q though!
