Re:So what city turns out the worst BBQ snobs, do you think?
I use Urbanspoon quite a lot - so should y'all! - and my biggest pet peeve is people who join and create an account just to trash a restaurant and are never seen again.
My second biggest pet peeve, however, is when people use geography as if it means something. You see it a lot, people reviewing a pizza place and saying "I'm from Chicago, so I KNOW pizza, and this place just doesn't cut it," or some such. You see this a LOT.
Since I spend a lot of time cleaning up and editing the listings for barbecue restaurants throughout the southeast, I see this kind of behavior constantly. About 20% of the time, it's "I'm from Texas, and so I KNOW barbecue." About 80% of the time, it's Memphians acting like their home turf makes 'em something special. There's a lot to like about Memphis, and a thing or ten to love completely, but their snobs are, by leagues, the snobbiest.
