Re:BBQ beef short ribs in Texas.
Many people think good que is easy as sticking meat in the grill and adding a few wood chips and viola instant bbq.
Where Kreuz and some of the bigger operations have their pits indoors many of the smaller joints have outdoor pits or even mobile pits.
Those things are like a bratty child throwing a hissy fit.
You gotta watch the temp, the wood, the rub, the injection, the weather, the humidty, the wind, the meat and many other variables.
It is easy to have a bad day, and that bad day comes when you lest expect, just because of Murphy and his stupid law.
