I don't really have any true no nos. Sure, I won't use matchlight most of the time, but I have a smokey joe at my store that I cook lunch on every once in a while, and, well, I'm in a shirt and tie. I use matchlight. You won't catch it at my house, though.

I have lots of these "half rules" for things I'll only do in a certain situation. However, if I had to have one no no, it's never say, "You can't grill/smoke that!" because you can, and it will probably be awesome!

No wet wood.

NEVER tend the fire barefoot. Hot embers/coals somehow make their way to places they are not supposed to be.

Biggest no-no is overcomplicating things and not stress out!

I dont ever judge the smoker, gas, charcoal or pellet pooper. I judge the food itself.

I wish more folks around here did that instead of bashing the other guy's smoker.

My biggest no no is don't chase the temperatures. I see a lot of post on here from guys struggling to maintain a constant temperature and they end up making adjustment after adjustment without giving the smoker time to settle in after the previous adjustment.

I had the opposite problem. I took first in ribs at a local comp last fall. A few weeks ago this gut invites me over to a party he's throwing. He foiled the ribs the night before and is doing his whole cook foiled. Then, when they are "falling off the bone" he throws them on a gasser "for some color" and hits them with KC Masterpiece.

He keeps telling his guests that my ribs are "award-winning", but fails to mention that his ribs are not mine. I was trying to be polite, but made apoint of telling those who asked that I did mine differently.

I will definitely not run outside in the middle of February in just my shorts, a tshirt, and a pair of sandels to do a quick temp check and shut the door behind me without making sure that it is unlocked.

I don't like lighter fluid.....Don't like trying to cook outside WITHOUT my music/ballgame on great outdoor speakers......tried an infared grill once:loco...but I guess the biggest NONO was trying to cook all these years BEFORE I knew about the Brethren......guess you can call it paying my dues...

I have so many, it's hard to say which one was the biggest. No-No's... lets see......

Probably my number 1 was getting over someone else's definition of low n slow; trying to make a masterpiece at a temperature that was unnaturally low, frankly way too slow, smothered the fire so it produced tons of billowy white creosote laden smoke, and producing bitter, over-smoked, dry pork crap.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
