I think these evaluations are interesting because they help me know what to listen for. I will definitely experiment with speaker placement cause of this. Thanks for your hard work!

If you are thinking of playing with placement, you might take a look at the beginnings of our setup guide.

Thanks for the reply Wayne!

Yes some of us are more sensitive to it than others; then of course there is what room acoustics and placement does to shape what we hear as you mentioned in the review.

My first intro to really good BBQ was John Hardy's BBQ in Rochester, MN.
And I thought I was going to read something different.

I did not say it was last or best. I have had what was supposed to be the best in a city or region that was not near as good.

Then there was the BBQ I had recently at a guy's place in southern Alabama that pretty much stole the show in all classes, including the coveted cooked with lots of TLC award. The only problem is the conditioning that has taken place and the expectation put in place for future visits - denial can lead to severe PTSD.

FWIW, being aware that ear fatigue can be a problem with an event like this, including possibly shifting one's comfort and preference thresholds, we took lots of breaks. I also had a set of sealed headphones which I wore most of the time I was not actively listening for some extra attenuation and protection against hearing fatigue.
