One thing I would like to clear up is the 1 to 1.5 hour rule ??? It's not my RULE nor anybody else.
It's always been a guideline. I have heard all my life when people are talking about smoking they say
"I go by the 1 to 1.5 hour rule" A FIGURE OF SPEECH that's it A GUIDELINE
I wanted everyone especially the Newbies to have as much understanding of how and why and about meat. I sure didn't mean to step on anyone's toes .
Like the Heading said I did a lot of research talked to a lot of people and my over 50 years now of smoking experience .
