^^^ +1 what most of these guys above said.
Honestly, if I asked brethren what/where is a shoulder, a whole shoulder, a butt, and a picnic, I'll bet 85% get the answers (at least one of them) wrong. FYI: I intentionally listed them *wrong* above to a degree just to make the point.
So the kid doesn't know the difference in a point and a flat. Big Deal. Odds are (with any luck) the owner does, but the owner/proprietor can't be there every single minute of every day. Doesn't mean the BBQ is bad, and doesn't mean it's good either.
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
