I guess the disadvantage,or maybe advantage,of having to spend a lot of our time cooking on cookers,that leaked-bad,weren't insulated,weren't tuned for consistent temps,were completely thrown off by wind and rain,and needed to be fed every 45 mins,and didn't live with home electronics that you controlled on our way home on the interstate,we never figured bbq would be space science.
We figured it would always be an art,that we sat around,drank adult beverages,swapped lies,figured the distinct breedin' on heritage livestock,and the humidity and breezes.
Maybe swap a dog and a knife,while we was cookin'.
The thought was always,"it is the cook,not the cooker".
Who ever thought,you just set a button and hawgs could read,and everybody that lived up the street would turn out perfect Q.
My how things has changed in these modern days.
