I've had a couple over the years similar, but I dont want to compare. They're each priceless, as was yours; PRICELESS.

Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
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.

Wow! And I'm usually happy when they say mine is almost as good as a McRib.

That's a really nice story. Thanks so much for sharing.

Great story by the OP...

My favorite complimemt is that dead silence when everyone at the table shuts up and are collectively savoring my cooking. Ok, there will be a few moans, lip smacks and groans, but when you can silence a rowdy crowd with food - you did something right!!!

I really like getting that little guiet throaty "hmmm" that people don't even realize they are making when they bite into your food.

Wow!! The best complement??? I'd have to say that it's when I'm sitting at the table and my two beautiful daughters say, daddy, that was awesome! Can I have some more?......

Can't touch the OP, but my fave was after I took my first stab at a brisket. I'm in VA, so I had zero brisket exposure, but I took lots of info from this site and did my best. My sister-in-law, who is from TX, went back for seconds (something she never does anywhere) and teared up a little, saying it reminded her of home and that my flavor profile was dead on. A Texan going for seconds is enough validation for me!

The best compliment I ever got was when my dad started asking me to cook the meat when we were eating at their house. Normally he was the "Master of his grill/smoker". Well, several years ago he "officially" announced that I was the man of the grill/smoker when we did family cookouts because he could not replicate what I could do. Nothing like a compliment from your dad.

Great story man - that is a true win on multiple levels!

Compliment that is bitter sweet: Friends and or family are over and their kids are dog'ing down some BBQ and the parents say to the kids "why dont you eat like that at home" and the kid replies "because you dont cook like this"

it kind of feels good but also kind of like - oooops did he really just say that?

Kids can be brutal
