I hear you - but I suppose in this instance the method and style of using a honing rod that I discussed actually does damage to the knife. I guess that I would say that perhaps some (most) folks THINK they are using a method that gives good results, however, what is happening is that they are doing damage to a tool.
But I'm with you. I hate the notion of"purity" that is often associated with BBQ. You know, statements like, "That's not real BBQ." Real is what works for me - at least when it comes to smoking meat
