re: Charcoal for Smoking Meats - AlwysATgr
[quote]You're going to need wood also.[/quote] Yep. You want your charcoal to burn clean. And if it's burning clean it want impart much of a smoke flavor. That's where the wood comes in. Here's my preferences: Brisket - oak Pork shoulders - hickory Ribs - oak or pecan of even a 50:50 mix...

re: If secession was legal then what right did the North have to keep the South in the USA? - AlwysATgr
[quote]The neo-reb apologists to this day want to say secession was legal under U.S. law. It was not legal. This is borne out in the Prize Cases from 1863 and Texas v. White in 1869.[/quote] The people do not have to wait for the SCOTUS to read for us. From the DoI (1776) [quote]That whene...

re: Charleston, SC must eats - AlwysATgr
Charleston is a fantastic small city and with an incredibly vibrant food scene. I've been there about a half-dozen times over the past 2-3 years on business. So most of the time I'm 'tagging along' or I just ask and go where the local workers recommend. I don't keep track of all the places but w...

re: Went to BRQ yesterday - Link w Pics alongside Houston spots... - AlwysATgr
I'm partial to TX BBQ. Ain't seafood, but it's as good of turf as I'm gone get. So here's my question: Why wouldn't someone opening a BBQ joint in Red Stick model it after the TX joints? How hard is it to learn? Simply learn from those who are doing it well. I had Roegel's today - two meat l...
