Cook and eat it the way YOU like it. Thats my smoking and grilling philosophy. My ribs would never win a competition, nor my pork shoulder not my brisket either, my chicken would come in last place. But I like it, my family likes it, and dogone it, that makes it right.

Agreed! Food preferences are all that.... PERSONAL PREFERENCE and NOT fact. Do the necessary research if a beginner but at the end of the day it's all personal taste. If it tastes good to you and your family likes it, why worry? There's people out there that prefer well done steaks and turkey/chicken breast cooked to 180 and dry. Not my preference but if that is what you like than who the hell am I to judge!?

I watch the pitmaster shows with complete fascination. I'm amazed at the complicated process they go through to do chicken thighs.

Remove the skins, scrape them with a knife until the skins have almost nothing left on them. Doctor them up, put stuff on top of and under the skin for flavor. Then carefully wrap the skin back over the thigh.

It's hardly realistic food at that point. I'm sure it's really tasty, but I doubt they're worth all that extra hard work.

Also nearly every award winning competitor i've seen says they would never cook for guests the way they cook for judges.

I've heard that too. Myron Mixon said that in an interview I read recently.

That's what I don't understand. Why go to great lengths to doctor the food like that if it isn't an accurate portrayal of the real food served to real people?

Since when does a contest represent how we should think of food?

For example, The Miss America judging is based on:
  • Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimsuit - 15%
  • Evening Wear - 20%
  • Talent - 35%
  • Private Interview - 25%
  • On-Stage Question 5
For me, the criteria is:
  • Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimsuit - 15%
  • Do you have a personality that is fun to be around - 70%
  • Are you a little bit slutty - 15%
To each their own....

My only tweak to that one is:

Old fashioned Girl Next Door look with a hidden layer of dirty fun: 15%

Do they like BBQ 1,000%

I would love to see a BBQ competition where competitors are given the tools that the average person has at their disposal.

@powermatt99 I guess you're talking about a gas grill competition? Just kidding, of course.  I knew what you meant.  ;D

Where I live, that's pretty much what the average person has.  I was once that guy, then I saw the light and the smoke.  ;)
Sometimes the light's all shinin' on me
Other times, I can barely see
Lately, it occurs to me...What a long, strange trip it's been

Aren't there 'backyard' BBQ comps where that is the requirement?  ie, kettles, WSM, etc.
