this was my second smoke. the first was ribs that came out great, my second was a fresh but that pulled great but tasted like chemicals. i smoked for about 6 hrs at 250 and finished wrapped in foil till it came to temp then let it rest in a cooler for an hour or so, it pulled perfect, the rub was one that i found on line. it tasted like i needed more sauce and less chemical. my cloths smell great, my meat, not so much. what happened.
