Default Why do we....

argue, fuss and worry so much about what process is used to cook something? To me, if the end product tastes good and doesn't give me tomaine poisoning; I could care less if it was cooked at 150* or 700*, cooked nekkid or wrapped in foil, paper, birch bark, saran wrap, handmade papyrus or kevlar; cooked in a stickburner, kamado, UDS, on a propane grill, in a crockpot, on a stick over a campfire, or a smoker made out of an old portajon; rubbed, sauced, salted, or marinated. I expect food to taste good. That's all. Good food is good food, and there are many means to a successful end.

Discuss. :)

There you go being logical...



BTW, papyrus is superior to butcher paper, but harder to find

I dunno but anything that's cooked in a crock pot can't be good! I don't even make cheese dip in a crock pot

Well there you go casting aspersions on a versatile and useful piece of cooking equipment. May not be the proper tool for BBQ but it certainly has its place in a kitchen.

I'll disagree with that one. I love cooking on a live fire. I love real bbq. But I've eaten some delicious stuff that came out of a crockpot, and I'm not gonna snob and dis a meal cooked in a crock pot as long as it tastes good. As much as I love smoked and grilled food, smoking/grilling is not the ideal means for cooking some things. I make grilled french fries sometimes, but I prefer deep-fried ones. A deer roast cooked in a crockpot is hard to beat, it's about the ideal method to cook it. I'll break out the pan on the rangetop to cook stir-fry instead of cooking it on the smoker. Pasta is generally better boiled than grilled. If it tastes good, I like it, no matter how it's cooked. If it tastes bad, I don't like it. I would rather have a good meal cooked in a crockpot by Jane Doe as a bad one cooked for 14 hours over old-growth cherry coals by the Messiah Franklin. Of course, it's usually better cooked over fire than not, but not always. I've made good bbq hot, slow, wrapped, nekkid, whatever. As long as the end product is good, I'm happy.

I don't disagree with that, I love nothing better than sitting outside all day with a cold beer and blue smoke rolling. But I'm not gonna put somebody else down if they feed me good food that they cooked on a gas grill wrapped in 'luminum foil, either.

Many roads to the same saloon. Some take the bumpy trail on an old pony, some would rather jog on a less likely path, others take a freight train WFO , and some prefer an armored car. They all end up at the same saloon and their conveyance was the best way. Life would be farking boring as watchin paint dry if we all agreed all the time on every detail.

I totally agree. I just don't see the disdain for other people's methods as being inferior if the end result is the same.

Well... will draw the line at faux-que/Crock-Que/boiled ribs.

As long it involves an indirect fire.....
