You have to remember that Mike really made a name for himself on the competition circuit. It is next to impossible to create competition quality bbq and keep it affordable. There are alot of good bbq joints out there, but it is hit and miss with the competition guys. For example, Tuffy Stone's Q Barbeque is quite good, but Lee Ann Whippen's Wood Chicks not so much.
