The BBQ Manifesto

I first fell in love with BBQ after tasting some of the goodness from the guy across the street from First Baptist Church in J-Town, Kentucky. After our Saturday morning basketball games this guy would be across the street with the biggest BBQ pit that I’d seen at the time serving two inch pork chop sandwiches for $3 a piece. There was something about the deep charcoal smoked taste that until this day I have not managed to forget. I’d be lying if I were to say that I haven’t spent a sizable number of years trying to replicate that very taste in my own BBQ endeavors, to no avail.

Fortunately in trying to replicate those flavors I’ve managed to develop some of my own methods and strategies for creating some of the best BBQ I’ve ever tasted. So in the end it’s turned out to be a win-win situation for myself and those closest to me.

Over the past five years I’ve seen my level of BBQ cooking explode in effectiveness and I must say that most of it has been brought on by continually refining my core processes. The core processes include fire, smoke, flavor, timing and temperature. I find that whenever I am able to dial in on each one of those processes I produce some of the best BBQ known to man… at least this man!
