I did a big cook two plus years ago for my daughter's engagement party. Did ribs, chicken, sausage & brisket for 50 guests in my backyard. IMO, brisket was fair, ribs pretty good, sausage was sausage, and chicken was a bit over done from holding on the corner of the pit. Everybody raved about the brisket and ribs, my future in-laws declared me the world's greatest BBQ chef, and there were no leftovers except the half rack of ribs I saved for lunch the next day. I guess we are our own severest critic so we just have to keep working to improve in our own eyes and be happy others enjoy our efforts.
