Hello all...I am a new person in the world of smoking meat...Love the grill but watching BBQ Pitmasters I thought I would try smoking (meat)! I cooked a rack of ribs with charcoal and 4-5 pieces of hickory chunks....I used a rub with several spices and followed a random recipe from google...I cooked for 4 1/2 hours and loved the experience...when the ribs were "done" the meat was tender BUT the rub seemed to bake on the ribs and actually had to be scraped off to enjoy the meat.....I know not to use BBQ sauce because the sauce with baked faster than the meat, but if I went "lighter" on rub then it shouldn't be as thick next time?? Trying chicken (bone in) breasts this weekend...just light packet rub and cook!!! Wish me luck...ha
Any advice would be appreciated...I do love to grill and now smoke!
