I think the way a lot of the others do...there's (more) bad, (a lot) good, and (some) great. In the end, if you, your family and friends like it...then it's good. I've had some awesome BBQ, but I grew up being kinda confused on what BBQ should be. Growing up in southern OK, I had a lot of TX Q...but then I moved up to NE OK and most of the places here are KC style. I didn't really have any idea how to cook it...until I came to the brethren. Now my wife, brother and friends ask me weekly to make them ribs or a butt...or three. I figured out it's not the style...just what you like. For all I know it could be some horrible crap, but I sure do dig it when everbody wants me to cook for them on my weekends off. In the end, it's all about making it into what you want it to be.
