I judge a BBQ joint by its meat and not it's sauce. Besides, great BBQ NEVER needs sauce. But I do like Hard 8's food. Really like the Jalapeno Corn side.

And a great steak never needs steak sauce. This wasn't great BBQ.

I can see you guys take BBQ seriously

I'm trying hard to get an understanding of what good BBQ is from reading this extensive thread. I'm just gonna have to hang with you guys more often to get a feel for it. Dang, I left my gas BBQ in CA during a recent visit, but I suspect BBQ is not done correctly if cooked on a gas setup anyway. Does it need to be wood fired to be proper?

Didn't have the sirloin this trip. Ribs were good enough but I prefer LC by a bunch.

Gas setup is grilling....BBQ here is done with wood and smoke

A very common problem IMHO. Somehow many BBQ sauces have evolved to be sweeter than syrup. I like the sauce at Meullers because its almost an au jus like you would have for prime rib.

I like the places that won't serve a steak with A1 and won't cook it more than medium well.

Ed trying to get an understanding of great BBQ from reading a forum is like trying to understand women by reading a book. You must go forth and sample the Q at many places and then you'll begin to understand good BBQ. Like women, BBQ is a complex thing with many regional differences. Also like women, the quest to understand them may leave you frustrated and broke.

BBQ refers to both the food and the equipment, but the gas BBQ you refer to is more correctly called a gas grill. When on your Q quest, ask the pitmaster to see the pits, they are as varied as the products they produce. In central Texas, the meat is usually cooked on a pit (Saltlick, Cooper's, Hard 8, every place in Lockhart to name a few). Other places use old propane tank looking smokers. But the method is fairly common regardless of device - lower temperatures and lots of smoke from the main heat source of wood.

BBQ is WAAAAAAAAY easier to understand than women. Simply because it is possible to understand one of the two. That would be the BBQ.
BBQ will never be upset that you had other BBQ, etc, etc

Possibly your half. ;) But the Circle T double chop is real good.
