I know my neighbor likes to ask what I am cooking every time I fire up any of my cookers. He openly admitted that he has a propane grill because he is impatient and would not be able to wait. He always sneaks over for a taste of whatever and swoons over it. Now that being said, most BBQ joints are crap. It is a lot easier to cook up 1 meal versus several over the entire day for a boatload of people that all like to complain that it is too smokey, not smokey enough, too spicy, not spicy enough and blah blah blah.
I always enjoy my own cooks, not just for the food, but for the time I got to spend with my smoker. I'm going through withdrawals right now. Stupid winter.
