This.

Come on down to SoCal, @bayareabadger with a case of Russian River Blind Pig IPA in tow, and I'll show ya the ropes ;-)

That said, I think part of it is that people here in CA don't even know what good BBQ is. People think if you slap BBQ sauce on something it's BBQ. The issue will be that outside of the aficionados who REALLY know BBQ, the good BBQ won't distinguish itself from the mediocre BBQ joints.

I think of it similar to where beer was a decade ago. Places like CA, OR, CO, MI, and portions of the Northeast had great beer. In those areas, very few breweries weren't good, because they were a stone's throw from a place with much better beer, and any consumer that tried both learned the difference pretty quickly. Outside of those places, there were breweries and brewpubs, but a lot of them frankly sucked. The reason for it is that people didn't know the difference between good and bad craft beer, so the bad breweries could survive more on novelty than on quality. It's now grown to the point where palates have gotten better across the country such that bad craft beer is called out as bad craft beer, and everyone has had to up their game, regardless of where they're located.

I don't think BBQ has hit that inflection point yet. Mediocre BBQ in Texas will get run out of town. Mediocre BBQ in California will make the owner rich.

Matt Horn’s long-waited Oakland barbecue is finally opening (Really!)

This weekend, those lines will form at 2534 Mandela Parkway. Although Alameda County is preparing to allow indoor dining, Horn will stick with outdoor tables and a takeout window for the time being.

Details: Open Thursday-Sunday starting at 11 a.m. www.hornbarbecue.com

Long, crazy lines at a new BBQ joint?  Makes sense.
Long, crazy lines at a new White Castle?  Stop.

That is many of us here really.  The question is whether you "throw away your vote" or choose the least stinky candidate.  I'm the former.

I will not be voting for Trump nor Biden.
Agree with both and voted accordingly - provided the mail in gets there

IMHO, so long as "we" keep settling for the LOTE to decide our vote, we'll keep getting two weevils.

example of a misfit................

Joseph Desmond, a senior in the Krannert School of Management and Purdue Pete, was arrested on multiple charges at McDonald’s at 605 W. Stadium Ave around 2 a.m. Oct. 11, according to a probable cause affidavit filed today.

The WLPD officer was advised that two men were allegedly fighting in the parking lot, and one hit the other with his vehicle.

A Purdue University Police Department officer reportedly had Desmond in handcuffs and was speaking to the alleged victim, who the officer reported had sustained multiple injuries. A McDonald’s employee identified Desmond as the driver of the vehicle that struck the victim, which Desmond later denied, according to the affidavit.


Desmond allegedly claimed to have been golfing earlier in the day and to be drunk all night.

The reporting having consumed seven beers while golfing and then going to Harry’s Chocolate Shop around 11 p.m. where he said he had approximately four mixed drinks, although he couldn’t remember exactly how much he had had to drink, documents state.

The officer took Desmond to WLPD headquarters where he subjected him to three separate sobriety tests, all of which he failed.

“I had probable cause to believe (Desmond) had operated a vehicle while intoxicated,” the officer wrote in the report, adding that Desmond’s BAC was 0.172.

Desmond is listed in the Purdue Athletics Spirit Roster for the 2019-2020 season.

10/27/2020, Desmond

That's why after drinking my way through a round of golf I come home for more drinking, not go to a bar.
