Default Cook for you or them?

When you smoke for friends/guests do you do it your way or theirs? Yesterday I did some spares on the WSM, 3 hours, foiled for 1.5 then another 45min out of the foil(temp. 250-260 throughout) I never foil but needed to speed things up a bit. I found the finished product Ok but "mushy" all others thought these were the best ever. So, would you do it your way and have these hackers trash your stuff or do it their way and bask in the acolades?

For Q I cook how Al and I like it. Fortunately it's also how our friends like it. Steak... Cooked to order.

Anytime it's for some cue, it's my way. It's not out of selfishness, but rather I think they will enjoy a meal I'm more passionate about.

IMO, cook for my self. If they don't like it, they are a lost cause.

Honestly, I've never had a single rib boiling, sweet sauce making person complain after tasting my straight up no sauce no foil no baste spritz or mop ribs.

They don't even ask for sauce. All I hear is "Omm nomm nomm" "OMG, these are good!" "How long did you boil them?"

Yep.. I don't break the bad news that they were cooked straight up, as I know they'd be too stunned to figure it out. Just smile and say thanks.

It depends on the crowd.MOST eaters like "fall off the bone" ribs/chicken.I just play the crowd.Small gatherings with close friends,it's MY way,big crowds,it's their way.Of course I pull mine off before it turns to mush!

You did what you thought was right due to time constraints. Sounds like you did it your way under the circumstances. I'm not seeing a prob other than logistics. Start earlier if possible.

I find that I do it my way, and never have any complaints as most of the people I have over only have the local "Q" joint to compare it to, so no contest. A few have cooked in their oven or boiled (it hurts to even type that) at home. Always accolades and "you should open a BBQ joint".

I tell them if I did that then it would be work, and I would no longer enjoy doing it.

I dont expect others to change the way they cook for me, so when I cook for people I cook my way and hope everybody enjoys it.

In general, I cook for people I care about, thus, I do not cook for hackers and I do not cook for accolades. I cook for people, I consider it a great skill to feed people food they will love. If it isn't quite how I like it, doesn't matter. I want people to love the meal I cook for them.

Good question for today. I cooked for my 70 y.o. aunt and her friends today. They like their bbq like mush with lots of sweet sauce. Everything well done. So that's what they got and loved it, not much to take home. In years past when I would cook my way, toothy ribs, med rare steaks and no sauce, I would have plenty to take home with me.It is her party so she gets what she wants. This year I tried to introduce beef ribs to the menu. Guess what not a single taker. And these were some of the best I've done if I do say so. I did not mind at all since they all came home with me.

Tenderness for me but Taste for them. I like my rubs on the spicier side so I either go sweet rub with everything or half sweet and half spicy...just gotta make sure to marK which racks of ribs or chicken pieces are spicy!

What is happening here is everyone is used to high sodium, low flavor fast food. Any real food is considered "too spicy". They need to get off the fast food kick, and learn to enjoy home cooked food again (like it was 50 years ago before fast food).

I ate an $8 meal at wendys 3 months ago. I swear it was the most bland flavorless salty meal I've ever eaten. Couldn't wait to get home and cook some real food.

Guess it depends on what you're used to tasting. It's a fast food society at the moment.
