Right. Once you know how it works, you can try to predict outcomes. Figure most people are there for a free meal. Most are more in the senior crowd and almost all are not trained BBQ judges. Don't go hot, keep it sweet, and "falling apart" will be seen as PERFECT Q. We find that a lot of people think something's cooked perfect if it is falling off the bone. I think most of us would say that is overcooked. Just one of the things you adjust, IMHO.
