I don't necessarily disagree. I was refering more in the comp and tv area. I don't think that to many people are winning comps, at least KCBS style comps, cooking and offering "traditional" 'que.
Like I said, if the show wanted traditional NC style 'que, they wouldn't have given the teams whole pork belly.
So, in my mind, all bets are off and good for Sauceman's to think out side of the box seeing as he was given some thing out side of the norm.
