I decided to make my own BBQ sauce. After reading a few recipes on the web, I just came up with my own concoction. It included the following (sorry no measurements, I just threw the junk in the pot )

Ketchup; whole grain mustard, worster-whatever sauce, tabasco, cayenne, salt, pepper, Woeber's (ran out of fresh horseradish), bourbon, molasses, brown sugar, apple juice, cider vinegar, onion and garlic.

Uncle Bob would be proud....

About the time I finished my sauce, which came out AWESOME, this happened:

So.......the BBQ sauce was awesome (it could be all that bourbon talking tho).

Why did the meat never get to 200-205?

{{{CRASH}}}, I feel your PAIN!!! That SFB loaded up with ash. To make a long story short, it was no easy task getting rid of that ash. I was soooo full, it was smouldering the coals!

I threw some mesquite chunk on for an hour which gave a nice taste to the ribs.

I removed the butt just before posting the pics. It's wrapped up in foil, going in the fridge. I'm going to have to put it in the oven for a while tomorrow.

Are you finding it difficult getting the temerature up to the 225-250 range? I am struggling with it, so far my only solution has been feed tons of charcoal. I am almost though an 18 lb bag!


It will be fun to compare pictures :)
I went though 1 and 1/2 bags.

I hope yours came out good!!!!

No. It was set too low, so I was overcooking the food. I played around with it this morning trying to adjust it, but to no avail. What a piece.... !

The guage I got from Lowes was two bucks. I really reccommend picking one up.

Jeekinz, that's why I'm a "log-burner". Briquettes produce to much massively bulky ash for me. Wood produces ash, but it doesn't mass as much, and compacts down nicely.

The next time I smoke something, I may do the same photo-rama, to show you my process. Hopefully, that will be Monday.

Sam,

I cooked mine in the oven today for 3 hrs at 270. I let it sit, then pulled it. It actually came out pretty good. I have alot left over in the freezer.

I love good Q, but to waste a WHOLE day (and we all know how much those free days are worth)...I think it will be a once or twice a year event.
