$10K for two weeks of eating BBQ meat ain't bad, if it includes travel, lodging, and angioplasty.

If the barbecue morons are anything like fark's resident pizza/hot dog morons, no amount of money is worth dealing with anyone involved in this.

Grilling and BBQ are two totally separate things.

You'd think the foil company would have recognized that before embarking on this marketing push.

Oh,they are.

Had a neighbor who got heavily invested into barbecue culture - spent all his disposable income on buying expensive smokers, grills and grilling accessories, traveling to (but not actually taking part in) bbq completions and what not.  At first it was kind of cool because he would invite neighbors over to try his latest concoctions but man the way he would go on about it totally ruined what would have been a good time.

/comparable to a beer snob but with bbq!

Smoking/barbecue is supposed to be easy and accessible. Equipment is cheap, meat is almost always cheap cuts, timing is measured in hours rather than seconds so it's hard to screw up so long as you understand what to do.

Those that miss the point with precision temperature controllers, expensive gear, and store bought "premium" rubs miss the point.

In barbecue, the expensive part is your time. Pass it with friends and a beer and enjoy.

My setup is a homemade stack inside a Weber kettle.

Ah, Americans.

For the rest of the world, "barbeque" is a flavour. Four you guys - a food group.

No, barbeque is a cooking method, not just a flavor.

^This.
I can grill a steak or burger but it wouldn't be BBQ. My friend makes BBQ ribs in a crockpot (meh) but that's not grilling and not what I would consider barbecuing. To my way of thinking, when you barbecue the meat is prepped with some kind of spices and typically braised with a sauce that is tomato, mustard or vinegar based. The meat can be smoked ahead of time but not necessarily. Beef, pork, chicken and even fish can be barbecued. Note: marinading meat does not make it a barbecue.

One of our Italian exchange students was a phenomenal chef but had never had BBQ ribs until he came to the States. Once he tried it he was hooked. We showed him how to make baby back ribs and gave him our dry rub and wet sauce recipes. When he got back to Italy he went to the local butcher and got some ribs, followed our recipes and processes and served everything to his family. They first looked at him cockeyed but then raved about it. Now he has family and friends all around Lecco clamoring for American style BBQ.

By the end of two weeks you'll be hankerin' for a salad, or pizza, or ANYTHING but BBQ. My brother has been a judge at barbecue events and he gets tired of it after just a couple of days.

Considering Farkers seem to hate all food, this might not be so good
