    It's like with the many home remodeling shows. I've heard "ship lap" so many times I want to scream. Not to mention, it looks great in a beach house, but who wants their house in the middle of Texas to look like it's a shack on the South Carolina shoreline? Accent wall? Great. Entire room? Looks like a giant outhouse. And then there's the general hatred of brick. Everybody wants to paint it. Thousands of dollars to lay all that brick and they want to paint over it. Makes no sense to me unless the brick is damaged and too expensive to repair properly.

    From looking at the chart, it would seem "flavor profile" is short for "components of flavor and the overall eating experience that impact the experience of consuming this food". About the only thing missing here is "setting" and "dining partners".

    "Set it, and forget it."
    This one is popular when discussing temp control units, or lately whenever pellet grills are mentioned.

    When I saw the title, I thought about the cliche signs that were posted all around the old Dickies BBQ joints in the Dallas area.

    "Low and Slow" obviously. It means something kind of specific to us, but in popular usage it could mean cooking anywhere from 200 to 300 degrees. Speaking of Dickie's you'll see "Real Pit Smoked Barbecue" signs on places. That could mean anything wood-fired offsets, to actual brick direct heat pits, all the way to gas fired rotisseries.

    The Dickie's outlet I go to has a wood fired smoker in full view behind the counter. Generally pretty decent barbecue, and certainly good for fast food.

    Lessee..... cliche' phrases.... my high points have been hit already. That horse is getting beaten.

    Bob I'm glad you brought that up. While I'm nowhere near a certified competition judge, I had a chance to judge at a backyard rib throw down my Son did with his old HS foot ball mates. ( mainly I showed up for the beer)
    I was really impressed talking with the guys about what they used for different rubs, sauces, smoke wood and cooking apparatus for a unique flavor profile.
    I think the younger guys get it and can teach some of us.

    Different smokes for different folks. Wish the Dollar Store sold gas!

    Is the flavor profile sweet with a little heat with a kiss of smoke?

    (Btw, yes I get what people mean by flavor profile. I was mainly poking fun at how overused that phrase is on certain shows and if you look up the word profile it doesn't make much sense in the context.
