Let me ask you a stupid question... would you want to learn brainsurgery from a brain surgeon with 20 years experience or from a registered nurse? So, why the heck would you learn how to barbecue championship quality meats from someone who has never won or even participated in a BBQ contest in their entire life? This ain't rocket surgery here... if you want to learn secret barbecue recipes, you must learn from a professional. Someone with a track history of proven award winning, money winning, bring home the bacon type barbeque recipes. Not from some back yarder or amateur wanna be who thinks his or her BBQ is the best in the world because their friends and website family said so.
