for 6 hours? Do you not find that 210f takes forever?
I do them at 225f for however long it takes. I Sometimes foil, sometimes not.
Some claim Foil doesn't belong in BBQ not quite pure enough don't you know?
After all BBQ started with Oook the Caveman ( now in the employ of Geiko )One fine day Oook found a dead Mastodon Killed by a forest fire. It is still smoking from the intense heat and smoke. Oook being hungry at the time ate the meat. Wow thought OooK! Smoking meat taste good, Oook like.
Fast forward to The next forest fire. We find Oook dragging another Mastodon over to be near the heat and smoke. Mmmmmm good Oook like smoking meat. Oook think, hmmm I think I will call my new culinary method Barbecue. The first BBQ Chef cooking meat the only proper way is born.
But now we in the 21st century have strayed from the proper way to BBQ
We have foil, smokers, forks, knives grills, propane, charcoal et al. etc.
We need to toss out all of these evil things that have crept into our hobby.
Oook didn't use a rack to hold the meat on, so we should throw ours out just to be pure.
If you want to be even more pure you could throw out the water pan too. It promotes a higher humidity in the smoker....( thus steams the meat - bad bad )
Next we could eliminate the smoker itself and simply hang the meat over some coals and fan it with smoke.
Oops that's not pure either, using something to hang the meat up out of the dirt is not how Oook envisioned his invention. Get rid of all hangers and fans too for that matter.
No rock ring around a fire to direct the flames either not right you know.
I'm heading for California to do some Proper BBQing.
There are plenty of forest fires burning there , Now where the hell can I find a Mastodon.
Folks, when you start calling other people names, your getting way to serious about this .
Its just food.
