I don't think it is a "right" or "wrong" issue more than it is making a mountain out of a mole hill. Most bbq places aren't going to be as good as what most on this board can make at home. A kid making minimum wage and a manager who's probably not making much more aren't going to know the in's and out's of bbq.
If I go into a restaurant to eat I'm at least going to give it a try and odds are I'm not going to start asking the first worker I see questions of that nature. I'm going to look at the menu, order and sit down and eat it. At that point I'll form my decision on a place.
If I were to hold most bbq restaurants to the same standard as I hold myself when cooking I might as well not bother eating at another one again.
