    Yep.

    Since I started cooking for money this year, I’ve gone to more BBQ places in the last 8 months than I had the previous 10 years combined. I usually leave disappointed in the money spent. I’ve found that I basically care more about the quality of the sides now than the BBQ. And I’m nothing special. It’s just hard to cook huge batches of BBQ and have it be better than what you can do on your own. The price just is injury to insult.

    I make no pretense on being able to compete with a professional's quality, happy as I am with what I have been able to do. I just suffer from clinical parsimony.
