    Howdy all!
    Just got my first real smoker. Char-griller with side fire box. Before that I used my (whispering and looking around) gas grill with soked wood chips. I thought the flvaor rocked until my first attempt with baby backs on the smoker. I bought Jeff's rub/suace recipe. When I first saw the price, honeslty I was a little put off, but the more I thought about, if I liked it, it was a life time of praise! :-) Plus, I know the money goes to support the site. I don't mind chipping in to help a good resource! I really do love it, so does my wife! And she wasn't the q-ing type until now!

    Thanks for all the great info everyone!

    Welcome MKatts. I too invested in the rub after a bad 'free recipe' experience. You get what you pay for. Anyway, as you know by now, store bought rub will cost you $5-$8 bucks a jar[​IMG] Just a couple of mixes of Jeff's rub and it is payed for and then a life time of pay off[​IMG]

    Best regards and great smokin[​IMG]
