Since the hot dog thread doesnt quite cover it, figure we should start one on what everyone is looking forward to BBQing and/smoking this summer?!
I mostly do ribs (STL and baby back) and pork butts. I like my ribs both dry and sauced and enjoy all kinds of BBQ sauce, as long as it isnt too sweet (looking at you KC sugarpiece). Rub is homemade and a secret. I generally used fruit woods to smoke pork, sometimes I had a touch of hickory or pecan. All done in a barrel style smokers that is literally made from a barrel.
So, what do you like to BBQ/smoke? What kind of wood/charcoal do you use? What kind of rub/sauce? What kind of beverage do you prefer while tending the fire (I like a nice glass of bourbon personally)? And what smoker/grill do you use?
