OK 1ST UP IS A QUESTION OF PREFERENCE
SHOULD YOU GRILL FAT UP OR DOWN?

I like to grill fat up. It lets the juices get into the meat for flavor and tenderness

I also like to use local wood and never store bought

Right now I'm using oak, hickory and beach

Lets have some thoughts on this and other things such as rubs and methods of grillin' and smokin'

Ever try adding a small amount of apple wood to the mix? Seems to add a subtle flavor to the meat, just do not overdo it. I agree with the fat up, grilled slow till you can pull the meat with your fingers. Darn it, its too cold and rainy here to pull out the grill. Just the thought brought on mega-munchies!! Have a good one Lasthippie

Wish I could send you some apple wood. I'm lucky enough to have 2 old apple trees (almost as old as I am) which came up from apple cores thrown out by my brother and myself behind our basketball goal. Yes, I know that apple trees from apple cores should not have apples, but no one told the trees that, so they have broken theirselves down at least 5 times in my memory. A neighbor uses some of the new growth to feed to her rabbits, and I use some of the larger pieces to feed the grill and then the grill feeds me. Nice how the circle of life works. A nice pork shoulder on the grill, hickory , oak , and and apple chips for the coals, a nice vinegar based sauce for dipping, (in North Carolina, no tomato in the sauce here) some hush puppies, some liquid refreshment, and I'm as close to nirvena as I'm likely to ever get. I really like your idea of not destroying healthy trees, the woods around here provide plenty of fallen wood and pruning opportunities. Best thing, getting the wood and splitting it into small chips works up a heck of a appetite. Have a good one everyone !! Lasthippie

You will get more tender meat if you do cook it with the fat side up. The fat does not actually permeate the meat, but it does flow over the meat and when it is heated it will act as a barrier preventing moisture from escaping from the surface of the meat.

The Best Dipping Sauces Are The Ones You Make Up Yourself, Dont Follow Recipes,Just Add Ingredients You Like, And Experiment With The Flavours. Mmmmmmm

You might want to try this one:
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup cider vinegar
1 tb sugar
1 tb crushed red pepper flakes
1 tb tabasco sauce
fresh cracked black pepper and salt to taste
I usually add 1 beer to this but works either way

Best thing is, if the Greek Gods had had BBQ, they would not have had to make do with ambrosia. If anyone wants a great recipe for a Brunswick stew either PM me or post here and I'll post it or send it. Goes great with a BBQ feast.
Have a good one everyone and good grillin' Lasthippie
