Hmm ... it wasn't intended to be disgusting, but I see your point.
My intended point was that it is obviously more manly to have skills in preparing meat.

Seems to me there's a lot of time available for tending the fire while the dough is rising, and a lot of time available to knead and shape the dough while you're waiting for that magical 190 degrees in the pork butt. So why are you trying to wimp out here?

Bread makes you fat. Meat makes you build tall buildings, conquer space and feel-up the home coming queen.
You do the math.

I am a great preparer of meat; grilling, barbecuing, and smoking. However, my level of general usefulness is admittedly low; unless you want a great smoked rib or other meat, or a grilled steak, or a brat, etc.

All of the above. Learn to do everything so the woman of the cave has plenty of energy left to do what you really want her to do.

Really good, homemade bread is amazing, but doesn't really compare to really great bbq.
However, throw in pastries, like hand-made puff-pastry, croissants, sticky buns, napoleons, ... and now you're talking.
btw, this reminds me of that one episode of KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL where the pastry chef (Xander from Buffy) and teh Fish chef (Harold from HAROLD AND KUMAR) are having a contest about whehter customers prefer fish or cake. The outcome was very funny...

Dude, the fact that you don'ut know the obvious answer to this question is a-skairy.
John Rogers AU Class of 1985 The Al Del Greco of Atlanta
"You say that it is your custom to burn widows. Very well. We also have a custom: when men burn a woman alive, we tie a rope around their necks and we hang them. Build your funeral pyre; beside it, my carpenters will build a gallows. You may follow your custom. And then we will follow ours." (General Sir Charles Napier)

Good bread is easily and cheaply bought, good barbecued meat, not so much.
I'd go for the meat master.
