Default When Friends Stop By And Sample Your Q...

All of our comps have ben fairly close to home so far. This leads to friends stopping by and sampling our food after turn ins, and we are more than happy for them to do so.

Her is my question. Does it bother you at all when its a friend who has never tried your BBQ before, and this bland syrupy competition crap with no real bark?(personal opinion even the stuff that wins) I don't lose any sleep over it, I would just prefer a person's first impression of something that they think I'm supposed to be good at to be th kind of Q that I would serve them in my back yard.

Anybody else feel the same?

If they have never eaten at your house, they are acquaintances.

Secondly, our team cooked for about 60 of our closest friends yesterday and we did everything except the very last steps on all four meats. No complaints. Lots of foodgasms though.

I have a lot of FRIENDS whom I have never had over. Not everyone's living situation allows for entertaining.

Doesn't really bother me. I usually explain the difference between what I do at a comp and what I do at home. Even newbies appreciate the explanation. A few times, those that have eaten from my backyard before coming to a comp have commented they prefer the backyard product. My response is generally, at comps, I cook for the judges, not you. At home, I cook for you and me. They understand pretty quick.

Doesn't really bother me either.

Yesterday afternoon/last night, we had some friends over to eat the Q I had done as a trial for the upcoming PITP comp in Salisbury, MD. Funny, I thought the stuff was not any good (regarding comp style), but everyone else loved it.

EXCEPT, for the chicken. I thought that was our best product. Everyone thought is was "good", but you could tell they thought the brisket, pork and ribs were great.

Most people that have not been to comps, or judged, are not sure about the chicken. In my experience, they want breasts, legs, wings and thighs, grilled with a lot of sauce on at the end.

So, I don't even care what others think think about the product when we are practicing.

Any chance a mod might want to scratch this thread and merge it with the other one?

You misunderstand me and I apologize. I meant to suggest that there are diferent levels of friendship and I would not explain the difference to acquaintances. However, it would not be necessary to explain it to those closest to me.

Friends are just that, friends.

They will give you feedback at your prompting, but are more likely to lie to spare your feelings than give you good feedback.

Ask strangers and pretend it's your buddies Q.

Thanks for the replies. Its really not a matter of feedback for me, I just hate thinking that someones first taste of what I cook is something that I hate, whether they think its great or not.

I'm not understanding why you hate your competition Q. While I understand the whole one bite BBQ thing with judging, I am still proud of what I turn in. If I didn't like it, it wouldn't go in the box.

On a scale of "hey this isn't too bad" to "I'd rather eat rotting cat food" how much do you actually hate competition bbq taste wise? Not a loaded question, just want to see how much you actually dislike the bland flavors. Please use any scale you choose. It isn't my 1st choice in bbq flavor either, but the words hate and crap are pretty strong so just wondering. You have me intrigued.

Our competition food is different that what we cook at home, but that's based on personal taste. We give our comp leftovers to friends and family and everyone loves it. We don't eat much of it since we're usually burnt out on BBQ after the first comp of the season

Done, but I just happen to be reading the other thread and saw that you had created a duplicate. When you need a mod please use the report post button. That way we will all be notified and whoever is online can take care of it.
