I sure don't like the baskets, to me, they scream cheap food. I realize that plates have drawbacks, but, that is where you can get creative, maybe. When I see baskets and paper, I think there is no pride in the presentation of the food.
For BBQ, if the desire is to minimize table ware, then go with paper and claim you are doing it Texas style.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
