Slice: Pulled Pork In Spokane? Meh

Paul Turner/The Slice blog admits that he's a snob about some things. Quoth Paul: "I overheard a colleague talking about a new, local eatery planning some sort of pulled-pork extravaganza. And it was all I could do to avoid snorting. Still, down deep inside, I scoffed. You see, for six years I lived in Memphis, Tennessee. Memphis is the pulled-pork capital of the free world. Trust me. I know the difference between adequate and life-changing pig meat. Sure, that was a long time ago. And I no longer eat pork. That, however, doesn't mean I intend to turn in my card as a barbecue snob. Perhaps the local version will be mind-blowing. And I suppose it's unfair to judge it without actually tasting it. But dig it: Here's me being unimpressed with it in advance."

Question: And how about you? About what are you a snob because your travels afforded you insight and expertise unknown to other mortals?
