Sad fact is , if people eat like that , and alot of them do . That's what they think is good .Invite them back and serve skinless wieners with cheap chips
Well mine aren't either one of those , but they sure get their feelings hurt easy .I'm guessing that from your age most or all of these guests were millennials. In this Old Man's view, people in that age group are generally self centered and lacking in basic manners.
Little late to the thread here. First off congrats on the new child! I have never had that big of a get together to compare with but sounds like you had a lot of people forgetting their manners.
For the people who really don't like BBQ that much not a lot you can do. But if you can remember who said they didn't like the way you cooked it or told you a different way to make the food here is an alternative you might try.
Invite them over not as a big group but just one at a time. Tell them you were really interested in how they would cook the food and would love to see how they would do it. Then invite them over to use your rig so they can show you in person. If they don't take you up on it you can figure they probably got the point. If they do take you up on it you can see if they actually know anything about BBQ or not, get to eat without having to cook and then get the chance to critique them. If multiple people take you up on the offer...score for you on free food!
Yep. Well said! And they usually want that filet extra well done!I have come to find out, to my shock and disappointment that some people simply don't appreciate expertly prepared food. They are just as happy with a cold Oscar Meyer bologna sandwich as they are with a $400 filet mignon.
