    I'd say Brisket is the #1 requested here but I'd never do one on the road. By a small consensus :D of family and friends who frequent I'll say this is what they like the most:

    1. Briskets

    2. Ribs

    3. Tri- Tips

    4. Pork Roasts

    5. Chicken

    Ok, are you asking about Bar-B-Q ing or grilling. Some of that I would never bar b q. Grill yes. From your list Chicken. I like to smoke a brisket and serve sauce on the side. Ribs would be second for us, or maybe sausage links.

    Yes Real BBQ.  I do them all including brats and 1/2 hr. burgers. The new definition of "Grill" (propane) I usually stay away from.

    You know, BBQ to me is like a woman. Some guys are partial to blondes, brunettes or redheads. Some guys like pale girls, others like tan, some like latina chicks and others African American. When I was single, I never tried to limit myself. A hot girl, was a hot girl, no matter the hair or skin tone.  ;)

    BBQ to me is the same. You can't compare brisket to pork or chicken. They are all good and should be judged apples to apples so to speak. For brisket, there is only one way to cook it right. You get a fire made of hardwood chips nice and hot (I prefer hickory or mesquite). You sear the brisket on each side for 5-7 minutes until blackened on the surface only. You take the brisket off the fire and wrap it in heavy duty aluminum foil. Let the fire die down to coals and either move them to the side or put them in your fire box. Set the brisket back in the smoker and close your exhaust vent 1/2 to 3/4. Smoke the brisket until it reaches an internal temp of 140-160* depending on how rare or cooked you like your meat. Turn the brisket over every couple of hours. A brisket smoked over mesquite chips will be so good you don't even need a brisket rub for it to taste awesome.

    Pork ribs cooked with a dry rub are my absolute favorite. I've yet to find any as good as Corky's BBQ in Memphis, TN. Not the one at the airport, but the one on Poplar Avenue. I've attempted them at home a few times, and they taste good, but still not the same as Corky's.

    Pork shoulder should be smoked slowly until the internal heat is 160*. Pull the pork apart with your fingers on a chopping board or large surface and then mix in your favorite BBQ sauce. Again, TN does it best in my opinion, and at the top of the list is the Rendevous in downtown Memphis. I've done a couple of these and you can get these to taste awesome easier than ribs.

    Smoked chicken, turkey or ham are all good, but a lot easier to cook than the above. To me, they are more "side items" to compliment a pork or beef plate than a main course, when BBQ is on your mind.  ;)

    That is all good, but technically speaking bbq is really whole hog based with a vinegar sauce in the last couple of hours, or when the meat is still hot, but ready to be chopped.  You can do shoulders, I do them my self, but that is really the modern way, I know, it is still delicious.  Vinegar and mustard based were the first sauces, vinegar being the earliest, that is what bbq is, not chicken or ribs.  I know they do brisket in Texas, but that is another thing.  Nothing better than good lowcountry or eastern carolina bbq, chopped or pulled.
     
    It's all good food none the less.

    Don't get me wrong...a good carolina pulled pork samich (or stuffed potato) is almost good enough to eat w/o sauce, but there are definitely some even tastier dishes off the coals.

    Not a big rib fan...all bone no meat.

    I still prefer a fatty beef  {drool}

    Really it's regional. They burn a good chicken in the midwest IMHO

    I love brisket too, one of the best things ole' Texas has contributed to the world short of George Jones; however, if you are really talking bbq, there is nothing better than the original vinegar based sauce with a whole pig, and I like to use pecan wood.

    I would appreciate if you did a thread about pork.

    I have a guy who makes a good carolina pork, has a spicy vinegar sauce to go with it, but at $3 for a spoon of pork on a hamburger bun, I think I could save some $$$. To top it off, he won't sell me a jar of his sauce.

    So, I know people are protective of the precise recipes, but how about some good solid hints?

    I'll see what I can do, I'd even send you a some of my old family sauces, I have two of them.  One is straight vinegar, and the other has a lot of ingredient, but still is a vinegar sauce.  I already have sold some sauce to people.  I can definitly start a post, what do you want to know?

    Tell me how to make a boston butt with inferior equipment, such as my undersized smokey joe grille.
    Tell us more about a good pulled pork technique, some ideas on crafting our own sauces ala carolina style.

    Well first of all, the phrase "pulled pork" has more emphasis placed on the importance then is at all necessary.  All over the south, bbq is either pulled, (which can have different variations) and also chopped.  When one does a hog, the meat is usually chopped.  Chopped allows more of the outside cut to be mixed in, but I usually pull mine just right, allowing the mix.  That conception is misunderstood, even through the south, as the tradition fades. So cooking a boston butt, which is part of the shoulder is just a more convential and cheaper way to cook bbq.  Basically, you are not doing it right if you cook any bbq less than 16 hours.  When the shoulders get around that time, you should take them off and let them rest for at least 20 minutes.  Then, warm up about a cup of vinegar sauce and pour it over the meat; that really makes it bbq.  Some people baste, like when you cook a hog the last couple of hours, I don't, because my family does not, except on a hog.  Also, I would shoot for around a 10 pound shoulder.  If you have at least a 14 inches of indirect heat, you can get away with riging a cooker, that's what I do down at school.  Use some good wood, burn it down in a barrel, and shovel in new coals/burning chunks of wood on the side of your cooking device.  Cook very low heat, and cook the shoulder fat side up, or hog skin up; turn once to let the fatty side char some.  It should be so tender when you pull it, you should use tongs, or chop it.

    As far as sauces... I don't have any mustard based because the majority of my people settled in the outer coastal plains(lowcountry).  I have two vinegar based sauces that go back almost 200 years.  Try this:
    Half stick butter
    quart apple cider vinegar
    1tbs red pepper
    3tbs. pepper flakes
            
             chilie powder
             salt
             black pepper
    6 ounce worchester
    3 ounce texas pete
    cup water
    a couple of cut rings of onion

    cook this on a low simmer for about 5 minutes

    I think you would like my sauces, very different than most people are used too, but many of my friends claim my sauces are some of the best they have ever had.

    the sauce will taste strong by itslef, but that is not what sauce is for, do what I said to do on the meat, and you will have some of the best q you've ever put in your mouth.

    The Basque love a good Leg of Lamb for about a 6 hour BBQ at 10-12 lb. range.  I use a Dry rub and pack it in tight like a brisket over night.  Very light on the chili powder and sugar, the majority of the rest of the ingredients I leave the same. Add dried coriander, oreggano, rosemary with the rub.  Then top with fresh branches of rosemary. If there's not alot of garlic in your rub then step that up too.  When out, add drippings to Balsamic vinegar instead of AC and some red wine like a madeira, bring to boil to reduce and thicken.

    I like to smoke a big brisket with mesquite, I will rub it down with mustard (you don't taste it, mostly for tenderizing) and season it with fajita seasoning, then wrap it in saran wrap and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  When I smoke it on the pit (indirect heat) I do not wrap it up in aluminum, I let it soak in all that smoke straight on the pit.  I will leave it in until it is done, but I hear people say there isn't really a benefit after 7 hours of smoking, that you can throw it in the oven.  Not me, I leave it on the pit.
