Hello everyone, new guy here. I'm about an hour north of dallas. I learned about smoking meats when i went to college in alabama by the old guys that worked the pit at the local bbq spot. I first started smoking on an old weber kettle, picked up a vertical pit boss pellet smoker, then traded the kettle for a large big green egg. I've been smoking maybe once or twice a month for the past 10 years or so. My favorite is spare ribs. Dry > Wet. I love eastern carolina style vinegar based sauces and south carolina mustard sauces. I fell in love with bbq when i was 15 drivng from miami to west virginia with my church when we stopped on the ga side of the fl/ga border on i95 and found a small shack serving the greatest pulled pork sandwich that has ever existed and I have been trying to recreate that high ever since. Joined mainly to find tips on smoking some beautiful venison racks i have. Thanks.

Welcome aboard. I am interested in trying to recreate a magical pulled pork BBQ from my childhood from a small BBQ shack in Selma Alabama. It was both vinegary and mustardy which does not fit with anything I have found so far. Can't wait to hear what you come up with the recreate your "high" pulled pork.

Sounds like a cross between North and South Carolina Q.
