I'd have a prius in an instant if it costs under 20K. I have to drive 30 minutes just to get anywhere. I do have a motorcycle and can get 40+ mpg on that but hard to pick the kids up from school on that.

Several details missed that give it away.
That over sauced, shredded pork does make a pretty good sloppy joe, but that's about all it's good for. Give me a sliced brisket sandwich any day.
You generally have to go west of the Red river to understand real BBQ. And it's beef brisket, chicken, pork ribs and sausage. I didn't even know about pulled pork until my thirties. Then there's Cabrito and Barbacoa to consider.That's where you lose me. That's not BBQ. BBQ is pulled pork. Up north they used to call Sloppy Joe a Barbeque sandwich. Not quite as bad as "across the "Red river" I guess but close.
I could argue your barbecue point all day long. Pork ribs are okay, but that's where it stops. That shredded crap with sauce poured all over it ain't "real" barbecue, IMO. Real barbecue is brisket.
Chicago style pizza isn't pizza. Neither is a calzone. I like both for what they are though.
That's like me saying Memphis style barbecue is not real barbecue. It's completely different from slow smoked brisket, which is my favorite, but it's still barbecue.
I agree, There are some good ones out there.
Like many things, I don't think it's so much "good or bad" as "it doesn't work for me".
I would agree with you here, save for one exception. Good Gourd from Cigar City. I kept going back for that one at GABF.
I don't like a lot of pumpkin beers, but I have to brew one now for the homebrew club. A buddy of mine has a family farm that grows the little sweet pumpkins that are meant for cooking (not the big Jack O' Lantern types, which taste like ____). So he gave us all some of the pumpkin, asking us to brew a batch with it to see what works. We can make whatever style we want, adding the pumpkin to the mash or in secondary or whenever, as long as it uses 2 pounds of pumpkin somewhere. So I've decided to go for more of a sweet potato pie sort of a thing..... Scotch ale.... with big malt sweetness, and consideration of whether to add a little vanilla to mimic marshmallow topping. No cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg or clove in this one at all. I want to steer in a new direction. I think a Scotch ale might work well with this. I haven't brewed it yet but I'll be doing so this weekend. Although not a typical fan of pumpkin type beers, I'm actually interested to see how it turns out.
