BBQ Priorities POll #1 - What do we Learn to Cook For First?
 
I have always wanted to do this, and so I have tweeked the questions to get you to vote on the priorities.

Ever searched "Brisket Questions?" One common theme I see is too many things trying to be mastered at one time.

So in proper scientific form we should logically slow down and master one thing before we master another and likewise, in a given ordered strategy.

Which is More Important to master first; creating a good BBQ to EAT and satisfy the masses FIRST? or to create BBQ that Places Well of WINs amongst a few Judges. Those of you paying close attention know they are two different things. Consider the temptation of many newbies to think, hey I will skip this first step and just try to concentrate on winning.

Comments are encouraged but the VOTE will be all that matters in this series.

From the vote the brethren will establish an "official" consensus sort of.

Being a back yard guy it's all about making good food to EAT. :biggrin:

Creating a good BBQ to eat definately should be mastered before trying to satisfy a couple of judges. But, in order to do either, one must first master the art of fire control to maintain constant temperatures in the pit. IMHO. That can only come from experience.

Gettimg the level of meat moisture and tenderness (to your own liking) is key to great Q. Doesn't matter what meat you are cooking if you can get those down.
Then you can start tweaking to taste.

Learning to cook Que that pleases YOU should be first. Family and Friends (& customers) second. Judges are third.

Gotta develop the passion and love.

Very limited competition experience....however, everything I cook is judged by six (wife, kids and myself). If the in-house critics aren't happy the cook's not happy! :wink:

I have to go with pleasing my family and guests who attend my que's. I would feel much worse if I made bad bar-b-que for a family member or friend than I would if a faceless judge gave me poor scores.

But, then again, I haven't competed in anything more than a friendly competition, so I haven't got into the different mindset required to cook competition que.

Rich Parker 01-28-2010 12:07 PM

I already like my Q, so I want to know what wins. No interest in catering or restaurants so the masses don't matter.

Ron_L 01-28-2010 01:05 PM

For me, I can't answer the poll since I want to do both. I cook at home for me and the family and I cook at competitions to win. Others will be in the same boat, plus we have plenty of members who don't compete and are only concerned in cooking for themselves and family and another set of members who only cook for competitions because they are tired of BBQ and eat something else at home. This is why we have Q-talk and Competition sections of the forum.
