I started smoking Texas style barbecue in The Woodlands, Texas, about 15 years ago. In the beginning...it wasn't much to write home about.
Today? When we host a BBQ...it's a standing room only event!
Now, my first smoking attempt was in 1989 when I used a Brinkmann Smoke'N Grill Charcoal Smoker to smoke our Thanksgiving turkey. I think it actually turned out okay because my most vivid memory has to do with the green sweet potatoes that my sister-in-law prepared. #neverliveitdown
When we moved to Spring, Texas in 1992, I bought a Char-Griller barrel smoker (without the add-on firebox). I learned the importance of indirect heat. I also learned that the weather in Houston accelerated the rust factor on anything made out of cast iron 😉
Over the next 20 years I had a string of rusted out home improvement store offset smokers (with the add-on firebox). My fuel of choice was charcoal with the add-shot of soaked mesquite chunks. #closebutnocigar
You know how they say "hindsight is 20/20"? My BBQ life changed irrevocably in 2013 during the National League divisional playoffs when I saw this commercial:
Since that summer it's been our quest to produce the best barbecue anywhere.
