Just a couple points to think about.

1. Did that place sell bad Q, or some of the best tasting stuff around? (You don't know....do you.)

2. Do you leave a grocery store because the cashier doesn't know where the produce is grown?

3. Have you changed banks because a teller couldn't tell you how they keep your money safe from cyber criminals, or how the safe is constructed?

4. Do you refuse to buy gas at stations that the cashier can't tell you what additives are in the gas?

5. I've eaten some pretty dang good food, at places that I was surprised every time the waitress found her way to the kitchen. Hahaha.

Sometimes you have got to roll the dice and hope for the best. You may not like it or you may love it, but you won't know without ordering it as they serve it. My 2 cents.

If the OP is such a great pitmaster and expects everyone to know what part of the brisket they're serving etc.

Why cant he look at it and identify what part of the brisket it is himself?

I feel you on this.

I have some road eating rules I have developed over the years of travel, and my worst experiences come when I violate them. Here are some of the ones concerning BBQ:

If I can't smell or see smoke coming from the place, or
If they boil their ribs, or
If I can't see the smoke ring, or
If the sauce replaces the smoke ring,

Then that place will either not be visited, or if I do visit it, will not warrant a return trip. I am not a snob, but I have the right to spend my hard-earned money on a quality product. Life is too short to waste on bad food.

So you say he offered you a taste but you don't say if you took him up on it and if so if it was any good.

If you tried it and didn't like it, then good for you for not ordering more. If you didn't try it and didn't order simply because he didn't know if it was flat or point, then that's on you.

I would have tried it just to see if they were doing some thing that I could pick up on to improve my own product. I think that looking past the end of your nose more often and getting the chip off of your shoulder could help you in more ways than cooking technique and flavor profiles.

Some of the best BBQ and other types of food I have ever had has been from very unexpected establishments that didn't seem to have much more of a clue other than simply cooking and serving.

Heck, I bet many of the old timers that I have eaten the offerings from couldn't tell me much about the in's and out's of every part of a whole hog, but they sure could cook it to melt in your mouth perfection...and I gladly ate it with no questions asked!!!

And I can also eat a steak from III Forks or Ruth's Chris or the Metropolitan Grill or the Chicago Chop House when I could cook one at home for 1/10 the price (but not the flavor).....

...it's about choice
