[Should I pay extra for a better cut of meat for barbecuing, like choice
The whole point of true barbecue, as per the definition which is
generally accepted and discussed on this List, is to take those lower-priced cuts, which
are less desired by the general public, and cook them low and slow, in the presence of
smoke, and turn them into a tender, delicious and desirable meal. Anyone can buy a good
cut of meat and make an excellent meal out of it, unless they screw it up, usually by
overcooking it. It takes much more skill, and I believe it gives one much more personal
satisfaction, to take a tough, fatty cut of meat like a brisket, and cook it until it is
fork tender but still juicy and bursting with flavor.
[How do I keep the meat from sticking to my smoker grill?]
Give the grill a good spraying with Pam or other cooking spray. That'll
keep the meat from sticking.
In this section, I have included several methods from different
barbecuers for each major type of barbecue meat to show that there is more than one way to
get good barbecue.
