Yes, I have been out-sold by the bigger vendors who bring in thier ribs pre-smoked and so be it...at the end of the day I KNOW that what was sold was real and not just a misconception or deception. Be true to your self and your customers and it will work out..real bbq sometimes does not mean bigger profit, but if you stay real then so will your customers...they can tell..
So FECs and Southern Prides are keeping it "real"?
