I've noticed that with a couple places. One in particular there was no bark on the ribs and you couldn't even pick one up without it falling apart and the cartilage in the tips were very soft. The brisket is a pile of mush cooked till it basically disintegrates, not much smoke flavor...
It's almost like it was cooked in a pressure cooker and according to yelp it's some of the best bbq around.
ETA: Some people like it like that though, so I don't know, to each their own I guess.
