You know people will alway see what they want to see, make Assuptions where they are true or not. Double blind is what it means... there is no way any one would know who cooked what. The way I look at it is this. Come on I know some adults can be and act a bit childish, but to think a double blind smoke off judge could tell who was whos.. well I do pitty them and they need to put more effort in their smokin and less into other peoples business.
I do have to agree with Tim here as I said people will always see what and how they want. I would hope those here would never think any judge is out to get them or favor them.. Its the flavor (taste if you prefer), texure and tenderness that counts....
