So this review is for The Shed’s Original Southern Sweet sauce. All in all this is a good sauce. It has a sweet taste and a little bit of heat on the backend. The sauce is thicker and holds up nice to ribs and other meats. When you first taste it, you get a maple […]
So as I work on my own sauce profiles, I felt that I should try some of the other smaller brands that I can get at my local store. Today I am trying Sticky Fingers Smokehouse Carolina Sweet Barbecue Sauce. Here is what I found I really liked the tang the sauce gave. Unfortunately […]
So I was driving around the other day and I pass a Masterbuilt Eletric Smoker just sitting at someone’s curb. I stopped my car in the middle of the road and then pulled to the side. It was a rusty, warn out, sad little thing that just needed a little love. Taped to the top […]
The difference between clean and dirty smoke can mean the difference between awesome and horrible tasting food! Today we’re going to cover the different kinds of smoke that you can get with your smoker and how to control that.
So what do you mean by clean smoke?
Yay yay yeah I know by definition smoke isn’t cleaning but when we’re talking clean smoke with cooking we are talking about a very light to almost see-through kind of smoke. This is the kind of smoke penetrates meat and gives you that awesome smoke ring that you’re looking for when you make a brisket or pork shoulder.
And what is dirt and smoke?
Dirty smoke is just that if someone can look at your smoker and then feel the urge to dial 911 because they see billows of white, gray, or even black smoke coming out of your smoker then I can guarantee that whatever you’er cooking might as well go right in the trash.

oh Facebook, an endless supply of random things to try. This past week there have been a glut of post related to the ‘Swineapple’. This work of swine-tacular awesomeness is made from ribs, stuffed into a pineapple and then wrapped in a bacon! I really do couldn’t think of anything better other than a whole […]
A BBQ Class at home? You heard right, almost every BBQ class that is out there require you to travel to the teacher and can cost upwards of $400-$600 dollars! Now don’t get me wrong, paying $600 dollars for a BBQ class gets you an inside look into how a competition BBQ team does its […]
This is a Bonus Episode #001 I had a conversation with a great guy named Vinnie Tortorich. Vinnie is the host of The Angriest Trainer Podcast. He is a no B.S. down to earth trainer, podcast host, ultra marathoner, cancer survivor, and book author. Now I know this really has nothing to do with BBQ […]
So every once and a while I will send out emails to the people on my list and I ask a short 5 question survey so I can keep track of what you guys are really looking for content wise. This past survey brought up some things that I wanted to answer right away. I would like […]
