The secrets are as varied as the users on this award winning website. To what internal temperature should one smoke the average BBQued LJWorld comment poster?

As far as I can tell, it's lots and lots of beer.

Drive to City Market in Luling, Texas. Eat until the world looks level.

Tempertaure control and the right wood. That's pretty much it.

Don't you just turn the keyboard 180 degrees? Which, btw, is close to a good slow & low temp for some offset brisket smoking.

Getting the road kill while it's fresh always helps.

Whatever is the opposite of what Buffalo Bob's is doing.

Lol, ironically enough, I'll gladly take that advice. Fat Tire is my least favorite New Belgium beer.

You're right, g_rock.

Low and slow, use propane (yes, the gas of the debil), marinade injection is better than brining. I have also abandoned hickory for fruit wood. No, Autie will never speak to me again.

Yup, I'm aware of the company's history. Thanks for the d!#k response, though. Have a good evening!

I apologize for misinterpreting your post. That's why it's probably beneficial to take a break once in a while from the ubiquitous negativity found on this award-winning forum.

I do agree with your assessment of New Belgium, though.

Somebody's room full of spammers is working overtime this evening. BTW, Spam makes lousy, rotten BBQ.

On a MASH episode, Klinger cooked 'Rack of Spam' for a holiday meal.

I remember that. It was a Spam Lamb.

Spam is only good cooked out in the woods
