Chickens taste better when cooked whole. Pickles taste better cut. Sandwiches taste better cut and bitten from inside. Meat tastes better sliced against grain.

The pepper of rub goes very well with the sweetness in this sauce. It's mindblowingly good.

This. I make a 5x batch every time I make it.
The pepper of rub goes very well with the sweetness in this sauce. It's mindblowingly good.

That looks really good, better than the texas sauce he has up there. I'm gonna have to try it out next time.

Thanks. It's on my shopping list. I wanted to see if this is something I'd get into before investing on more equipment.

It is awesome...definitely give it a whirl.

When and how do you apply sauce? Do you just serve them together or actually apply it some time during cooking?

Interesting.
So wrapping really helped keep the meat tender but the bark was soft as well. Any tips on how to crisp it up without drying out the meat itself?

Unwrap it and put it over direct heat for a bit.

Right before serving I guess because I still want to keep it wrapped right off the heat so it absorbs some of the juices back.

I just moved to a second floor apartment but have negotiated the right to keep my BBQs 8) Can I use a infrared thermometer to check the temp of the grill from a window? How reliable would that be? Should I just splurge for a bluetooth thermometer instead?
