Re: Secrets to Great Barbecue


Let not we forget about praising the Lord of FIRE!
Remember, where there's no fire there's no smoke!

I keep the list short for myself, simplicity can be devastating.
Blues, Brews, and Chews.

You should add this to Jeff's E-course as apart of the newbe training. The real funny part is that you are right! I think this will really help me achieve that BBQ Zen status much quicker, thanks

No place in this craziness did I see Bluegrass music mentioned. It fits with smoking just fine. I also lean toward "classic country" (the ONLY country) heavily.
Can't beat a comfortable seat in the shade with "something cool to drink", the smoker emitting the thin blue, and some good grass playing.
A good friend or two and the dog or cat add to the experience.
But that's just me.

It has been a long time! I can't believe this thread is still here. During my "sabatical" I have discovered a few more secrets...

Never let the brother-in-law adjust the damper while you are out getting more beer.

To keep from losing that BBQ zen state of mine, remember at all times that everything inside the cooker is very hot! don't grab it with your bare hands.

Make sure dog cannot reach table where ribs are being cut if you leave the area.

Smoke on brothers....

drive-by ogglers

The main problemI have is the constant questioning from the neighbors driving by. It's always,"whatcha cookin'" and "when's dinner?" So... I got me a chalk board and colored chalk and post my menu and time of service along with a note to bring thier R.S.V.P. Now it's easier and I can continue to sip my Sweet Tea.LOLPDT_Armataz_01_36.gif

First, I want to add my legitamate answer...
beer or drink of choice; It helps with patience.
music of choice; It helps with calmness
Bank cards with open credit; It helps the wifey go away(sorry ladies)
Good Chair; It helps with stamina
SMF; it helps with all the rest!!!!

Monty you are a home brewer?!?!
awesome yes I agree the que taste better washed down by something we made as well.

I am finding a lot of homebrewers on here, and I have 1 question....

Why isnt the beer forum used more often?

I will pony up the first post with a Hops bbq sauce recipe, i will work it out this weekend. We can smoke our own malts, we can use our beers for marinades, sauce, and beyond.
beer desserts? and a good brew recipe too once in a while. Hops growing, I can donate hops rhizomes to whoever wants to try, I can go on, But I don't want to hyjack this thread for beery evil.

I have that problem too, but, I don't discourage them from dropping by for dinner, I just ask them to bring one side per person (I have a wife & 5 kid's). Next thing ya know: we have guests and a complete 12 course meal from nothin' more than my grille or smoker meat.

Yeah, sometimes it doesn't work (nobody out & about) & we have to come up with the rest of the meal ourselves, but then there's a bunch of leftover smoke, so, what do we do? Freeze, reheat & re-eat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hah!!!

Can't lose, man!!!

If I may add a couple of thoughts. A good book. Helps the time past away. A cell phone. Call a friend when you need someone to talk to without going in the house.

General rule...no member of the cooking party or gallery may look directly at each other. All conversation must be from the side of the mouth, while looking directly at the smoker. You may however, if the situation deems it necessary, tilt your head toward the recipient of the comment/query. Just do not remove your eyes from the smoker.

This is the first time I have seen this thread. What a hoot. The rules of the first post (slightly amended) will be hanging somewhere near at my next smoke. You know what I always say..."BEER, BLUES, BIKES AND BBQ" it don't get no better than that!!cool.gif

I think what ever music you listen too has to assist in the the smoke ring. One rule from my favorite music, Blues is to take smoking some place it hasn't been before. I have seen that here with the new recipies for food or sauce. Second taking your love to work and spreading the word of smoke.

If I think the people I have invited are only going to show up when the food is done. I lie. It is the name of smoking and spreading the word and I like hanging with friends while the groceries are cookin.

As of this January the Key West Cigar Factory was alive and well. I missed the Virgins rolling on their thighs while I was in the shop, but the cigars were fine!!icon_lol.gif
