I agree with IamAMadMan, it is because we can. We don't have to worry about getting along, we all have food, housing, clothes etc...most of you even get laid from time to time, so we fuss about how we cook our BBQ. It is all in fun.
If it ends up being good food, I am all in. If you cook all wood, no foil in an offset cooker low and slow and it tastes like carbon and meat dust, well, it didn't matter what you did, it didn't taste good.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
