Here are my two cents... If you're into competitions you can be right all you want and finish middle down or conform to the standard and have a chance. You're cooking for judges and sweet is clearly their preference. If you're not into KCBS competition BBQ, pay no attention to the method. Make the ribs the way you and your family prefer.
