anybody following the fight between smokedaddy's BBQ and the wanna-be bonedaddy's BBQ owned by the twisted spoke brothers?? first, a disclaimer. i am a pastry chef and make all the desserts for smoke daddy's. but, i don't think this colors my judgement. the reader(or maybe new city?) had a big article about this (which was the first i'd heard of it). twisted spoke wants to name their new bbq joint bonedaddy, and max, who owns smokedaddy's has sued them. he feels, i think, that people will end up at bonedaddy's sometimes, actually intending to go to smokedaddy's. anyway, i felt max had right on his side, but didn't feel too strongly about the issue till i saw the ridiculous ad that twisted spoke took out last week in new city (page 24, 10/26) where they make fun of max's name ('mark, my nickname is max' brumbach) and talk about how much money smokedaddy's pulls in everyday. they just sound like petulant little boys reduced to name-calling, and now i am firmly in smokedaddy's court. any thoughts??
