My my, what a topic
I cook in competitions in KC area.
I cook against some of the best teams in the country.
I hold the following as facts!
I have eaten a lot better ribs at a BBQ restaurant than some back yard ribs.
I have never eaten better ribs at a BBQ restaurant than at a BBQ contest.
I cook on a BBQ team and I also judge at contest.
NO, I do not judge at the contest I cook in ;)
A flavor balance is key!
I like them sweet but not to sweet, spicy but not two spicy.
We have placed first in ribs a a contest with over 180 teams.
I could have eaten 2 racks of those ribs.
Yes I do use honey for the money.
And like it!
