Here is a little history lesson on where this came from. There is a team called Shigs in Pits and they competed in the midwest around Iowa, Illinois, Indiana. It was alleged (all in fun) that he would enter your cook site with the intentions of seeing what sauces and rubs you were using so he could try and get a hand up on you. This term "shigging" was coined by Darren Warth of what was then Smokin Clones and is now Smokey D's. So the term "shigging" is to enter a teams site during the heat of battle to try and steal their secrets. It is not asking questions but trying to be sneaky about it.
