I'm not beating on anyone, just saying there are other ways to BBQ meat besides the ones that are pushed here.

Blu is on the right track. Higher heat = fat renders better.

Why remove skin on chix? Cook at higher temps and it'll be wonderful. Ever look at a color coded analog thermometer?

Depends on what temp you're cooking it at.

Higher the cooking temp, higher the finishing temp, whether it be chopped, sliced, or pulled. Short on time?, shoot me a PM for suggestions that don't fi ...

Pecan wood doesn't have nuts, but it is a nut tree. I love Pecan for smoking BTW.

Where do you think pecans come from?

I THINK they come from a pecan tree. And your point?

Sounds like a lot of fun.

Just a tip when shopping for Japs. Look for the pristine smooth skinned ones for milder flavor. The japs with stretch marks (striations) will be hotter as they have been ...

Yes, it sounds perfect. Gotta run with higher heat to get the chix skin crispy, and you have a perfect plan.

Looks closer to rump cap than tri tip. Something about that fat cap (think picana).

Nice looking meat whatever it was.

Nice looking picnic. I actually prefer the picnic for PP. Meat has a slightly different flavor, better IMO.

Ok I have smoked a few pork butts already and have been happy with the results but I have a few questions.
1. Do most of you inject them or not. And if so what do you use?

For backyard BBQ, I don ...

Modding it would use the same ideas as modding an ECB. You want a raised charcoal basket with enough room below it for ashes to fall without choking the oxygen supply.
