more of an observation, I'm looking to understand something. one of our suppliers was having a BBQ roasted pig this weekend, so we took the family. good amount of people, decent spread. but....we get there and they were pulling the pork (np, love pulled pork) that is when my son asked, where was the smoker or the pit? i didnt know. so we got some bird and some of the pork. took a bite of the chicken, tasteless crap took a bit of the pork, no smoke, tasteless, and for the sauce if it got any sweeter my teeth would have had to move out. the beans were so sweet my kids whom love baked beans wouldn't eat it. so do people not care, do they not taste what they are selling? this food wasn't worth the time it took to go to the event. my wife made the comment we should be cooking for these. told her no, leave it to the professionals. now Ive been cooking in high end restaurants for 16yrs and so far not impressed with some of these vendors. my best friends kid was with us, he looked at me and commented why is yours so much better, i told em cause i read the forums and ask questions i guess, i dont know. the owner noticed we didnt eat our food and copped an atittude but instead of replying and commenting i just told the family to go to the car ill deal with him. all i said to him as i turned was we werent hungry. while i walked i could hear all kinds of crap from his pie hole about what was good food. im not calling out the person and im not calling out his company. but this just makes no sense how people who cant cook continue to be in buisness.
