Been cooking for approx. 40 years, a degreed Chef for 8 years. In the past, I have owned a bar, cafe, and catering BBQ business. I engage in competition BBQing and enjoy the competition of having my food blind judged by folks who aren't hungry or know who has prepared it. Only way to get a truely honest opinion on your Que, since most friends or family you cook for will all state it's the best they ever had, mostly cause it's free.
