    Need a Good Chicken Rub for Smoked (Whole) Chicken

    Tomorrow (Tuesday) night I'll be smoking a whole chicken. I never get a good, dark color when I do this. I'm thinking it is the rub. Unfortunately, I am not able to go to a store at the moment, so I am looking for a recipe that I can make at home. Does anyone have a really good chicken rub to...

    Cook Times for Whole Chicken?

    I saw two schools of thought when it comes to smoking a whole chicken. One had it hot and fast at 375 for an hour. The second was at 225 for two hours, then crank it up to 325 for 15 minutes. Any feedback on methods would be appreciated.

    Ribs Questions

    I've been using the 2-2-1 method for the past year and simply love the way the ribs come out. I'm using my Traeger Pro Series 34. But like all cooks, I'd like to experiment a bit and try a few new methods. I want to run this by the group and get your thoughts. Dry rub and smoke for 2 hours...

    Sauce Recipe Safe For Canning

    Can someone suggest a recipe for a KC-style sauce that is safe for canning? There’s a chain of BBQ restaurants in Texas named Bodacious Bar-B-Q (headquartered in Longview, TX) that has just the sauce I’m looking for. Mild, not too tangy, not too sweet, definitely not too spicy. The emphasis here...

    Summarized version of the recipe: Use a spiral sliced ham (I got mine at Costco for $2.29/lb) Place the ham into a shallow pan.

    Brisket - Nothing Fancy

    I have a really hard time trying to do anything fancy with a brisket. The meat is just so darn good with minimal intervention. Here's my basic brisket method: This time I started with a 15lbs certified angus beef brisket. Usually I shoot for smaller briskets because all I have right now is a...

    Tri-Tip Reverse Seared

    Started with an almost 3 lbs trimmed Tri-Tip from Albertson's. After a nice rinse and pat dry, I seasoned it with some of Wild Bill's rub. Wild Bill isn't a commercial rub, he's just the guy that everyone wishes to have as a friend. He's an older retired man who slays elk and slams fish by...
