pork butt sticks to cooking grate when taking it off the smoker?? - Page 2

post #21 of 26

I don't have the Q-matz yet, but gotta get some.  I do use cooking spray (Pam, etc.) on the grates, helps a lot with the meat sticking.

That and maybe the ingredients and amount of rub.

Does anyone have any pics they can post of these sticking problems?  I'm curious now because I've never had anything even kinda seemed like it stuck to the grates, never...

On the MES I get a little Bark sticking but never leaves big chunks on the grates...JJ

Pam is the fast solution. Once your grate is WELL seasoned it is less likely to happen. Qmats rock too. Now available from Amaze N Products.

I smoked mine at 225 and let internal reach 205 and it stuck bad. Had fat side up.
