Sounds like some of the anti comp arguments as espoused by Bob in GA, Dave Lineback etc.They do make some fair assessments that comp bbq should not be used as a criteria when judging the quality of bbq in general. Now I think there is an argument to be made on this issue especially as it applies to KCBS judging. Texas type man/manette off the street type judging is a hoss of a different color since folks are allowed to pick whut they really like as opposed to picking whut they tell them to pick in judging class. Thats purty silly.
There has been a debate on this forever....... The Mayan and native North Americans used indirect smoke methods for over hundreds of yrs before migration of the europeans arrived... in the Mayans ruins there is proof of smoking rooms for wild game all before the use of calendars.... so the definition of bbq and grilling will go forever... I have so called "grilled" pork and beat up comp style smoked pork... i have smoked some of the best brisket and got my ass handed to me by a Chuckwagon cook from the Pitchfork ranch in Texas that cooked on a rotisserie rod over a fire in the ground... The debate will rage on forever.......
The good BBQ grilling is done slowly with lots of patience and love I personally enjoy every grilling moment even more since I am using my Outback gas barbecue which makes grilling lot more easier for any bbq party, you can check my grill bellow
