Default Whats more enjoyable...the smoking or eating ?

I know I look forward to spending the day prepping and smoking something on the que. Between smelling the smoke, hanging outside smoking cigar while waiting...the samples..sometimes I enjoy the cooking as much as actually eating.

What do you guys think... whats more enjoyable to you..the queing or the eating ?

Good question! I like eating Q. Depending on the weather, it's a toss up. Right now its hot and high humidity so eating Q in the AC wins hands down. Dont forget a bottle of the frosty brew to aid in consumption!

I do like to make an event of it for sure. i hang out in the screen room with the fans blasting and enjoy the smoke. Even my over nighters are an event, although ever since I got a pit boss for my egg, over nighters are much more restful.

So I would have to say I like both, the eating and the smoking!

good question--really think my joy is in the process and once the food is on the table my interest wanes---nothing like seeing the pleasure others receive from our efforts

Personally - I prefer watching friends/family (especially my kids) enjoy eating my que when it turns out well.

Smoking is fun - especially with a brown mumbler or two.

Now that I think about it I'm always excited to cook. I think to myself I can't wait to smoke this or grill this. And I'm always thinking about starting that fire and getting this wood or that wood. I'm never actually saying I can't wait to eat this after I smoke it. So I'd have to say I really enjoy the cooking being outside with family and friends more than actually eating.

I don't think I would enjoy the food quite as much if I wasn't somehow involved in the process. The food is more rewarding when I've been so involved in it. I think I could que without eating actually.

I enjoy the cooking at least as much as the eating, but both are good fun!

I get more from the cooking than the eating. If it is a long smoking process, I often can't even make myself eat it until the next day. Even when the rest of the family is gobbling it down and saying how good it is, I'll just sip a drink and nod.

I attended a bbq class by Mike Davis of Lotta Bull about a month ago and that was one of the first things he mentioned too.

Great question. I enjoy cooking and seeing all of the happy faces. It gives me a thrill to be able to give someone BBQ that I know that they will love.

I like to eat a lot when others cook and I enjoy the food more. When I cook I only eat a little bit and I don't enjoy it as much. I think by the time everything is said and done and the food is on the table I am saturated with the smell of it that it just does not taste the same.
