    BBQ sauce: Does applying it warm during cooking make a difference?

    When I make my sauce I cook it. Not only do I feel the flavors meld together better, but it allows me to cook it down to get the correct consistency. Though, I do not feel the need to coat the meat with the sauce while it is warm.

    Spatchcock or beer can chicken

    Just curious as to who prefers spatchcocked (butterflied) chicken or beer can chicken. I prefer the spatchcocked chicken over beer can chicken as I feel it cooks with better flavor.

    Offset Smoker Recommendations

    I started on a charbroil offset. I had to do all the modifications. It was ok, but that was quite a few years ago. They have made them with a thinner metal since then. If you really want a good stick burner, you are going to pay quite a bit more than $500.

    Pork loin

    If you are not going to make sandwiches, you could do a "Z" cut on it and stuff it. I've used basil pesto and feta. Also apple butter with sliced apples. A Z cut is about 1/3 way down cut to about 1/2 inch, then 2/3 way down cut from the other direction to about 1/2 inch. Then lay it out...

    Beef Liver

    I've actually grilled beef liver. Turns out really good. Just ensure you oil the grates thoroughly. Wrap up some onions in a foil pouch with butter for liver and onions

    Beef loin flap meat steaks ???

    I don't think there is any cheap cut of beef anymore. The internet has taught people how to cook all the cuts. I used to be able to get briskets in the mid 80s on sale for .39 a pound.

    Charred ribs

    If I am going to sauce ribs, I do it as the last 30 minutes to an hour of a cook, just long enough to start to caramelize.

    Why Yelp reviews are suspect

    Remember it is personal opinions and tastes. Some people like sickly sweet BBQ while others hate it. Some like the falling off the bone while others like it with a little tug. Look for the reviews that give details.

    Best ribs?

    Mark, you may wish to try flanken beef ribs. Ask at the grocery store for the ribs they cut down for short ribs. You can buy them whole, sometimes at a discount since they do not have to cut them down. They come in usually three bones about 12-13 inches long. Very good in the smoker.
