pork all the way. I am still starting out but in the first few times i tried bbp, i thought steak was king, but after i started getting into pork loins/butts/ribs, there is no comparison. that could also be because I just havent found a brisket recipe that i like so far, but thats only a year into the obsession haha. And this is not a regional bias, Missouri has elements of everywhere.

the worst thing ive heard though is this guy at a competition i participated in not too long ago, as my first experience, asked a teammate of mine if he liked pork, my teammate said yes. the guy said, oh, i hate the stuff, i dont even like brisket really, im a steak man. this was a butt, brisket, rib, chicken competition, who says that? idk, thats just my opinion

Well, like many others here, for me it depends on what you're talking about.

I like brisket and preparing one that turns out well is a rewarding experience.
But honestly, I just love pork for low and slow.

Now if we are talking about grilling then I'm gonna have to say beef... Med. rare steak / roast beef is probably my favorite meal.

If you are grilling, beef is good as pork. If you are smoking, pork and beef are good. If you are barbecuing, you are talking about pork. I love it all but the big, empty hatted Texans got it all mixed up when they had been out in that dry azz heat too long and came in hungry and started calling smoking beef barbecuing....lol (my fil was from there and I gave him no peace when it came to that). Course all was said in fun for the ones fixn' to beat their keyboards up with a response. Razz Laughing And for the chicken lovers, rabbit and turtle are hands down better. Store bought chickens should only used in possum teaching classes.

I like both it just depends on what kind of mood I`m in. It would go pork 1st, Beef 2nd, then chicken 3rd.

Well...you ARE Odd!!!!

I guess if I HAD to choose, I'd go with Beef, but that's mainly because of Ribeyes, briskets, and burgers. But a pork butt is sure hard to beat!!

Generally I would have to say pork, specifically pulled pork. But when I hit a home run with brisket (about 85% of the time) I eat until it is coming out of my ears. A plate of chicken thighs doesn't last too long in front of me either. Of course meatloaf would be real near the top for leftovers. As long as I cook something different each week I should have a new favorite. I love it all.

Very Happy Strictly between beef and pork, it's hard to say. A really well prepared pit beef (like a bottom round) is fantastic and hard to beat for pure flavor. Of course pulled pork and whole tenderloin are always great and they were my first loves... If you include burgers and steaks in the mix, I'd go with beef. If we also include bacon, pork will take back the lead. Hence, I'm going to once again choose chicken. Laughing

After careful consideration I've decided BACON is king.

I wrap beef in bacon.

I wrap chicken in bacon.

I wrap seafood in bacon.

I wrap pork in bacon.

I wrap vegetables in bacon.

Bacon makes everything better...

Pork. It's so versatile. And yummy. I'm about to start an 11 pound butt in just a moment so that I have some to take fishing this weekend (5 guys in a 35 foot sportfish full of beer and I'm bringing pulled pork. What more could you ask?).

I used to love me some brisket, but it's been so long since I've had any good brisket (and I've screwed up a few attempts at various cuts of beef in the meantime). There's a restaurant near where I used to live just outside of Washington DC that served the BEST brisket sandwich. Now it's owned by a Korean couple and I don't think they even do the smoking on site anymore. Sadness.

I'd have to say PORK.
But that could be because I am new to this SPORT!
From me experience I feel pork is more forgiving, thus I have better luck with it.
