Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong that would cause my sweet rub to taste bitter after cooking? I have used it several times and the first couple of times it was great.
Sweet rubs and sauces can burn on a grill.
Shouldn't happen at smoking temps?
I will join others in questioning the amount and quality of smoke.
Also, did you have good air flow? Chimney fully open?
Good luck and good smoking.
