    Stick Burner Smoke | Clean Versus Dirty

    Stick Burner Smoke | Clean Versus Dirty

    This clip was taken from the first BBQ session live streamed from my new BBQ Starter Club. I smoked beef short ribs with my Lone Star Grillz 20x42" offset smoker. We talked about the process for preparing and smoking the ribs and at one point, the discussion turned to the things to do (and not do) when smoking with a stick burner and how to gauge whether the smoke that is flavoring your meat is clean or dirty. 
     This is an example of the experiences that you will enjoy with other backyard BBQ enthusiasts who also love talking about and sharing their love of BBQ!

    Smokey Cue and Kenyatta Discuss BBQ and the Fellowship That Comes With It

    Smokey Cue and Kenyatta Discuss BBQ and the Fellowship That Comes With It

    My friend Johnny aka @smokeycue joined the podcast and we talked about the many wonderful opportunities for fellowship that are driven by BBQ. When his mom passed, the #BBQ community came to his side and helped him get through the difficult time. Like me, Smokey Cue also enjoys making great BBQ for his church and he also shares his smoking & grilling  talents with his co-workers.

    Johnny has competed in BBQ events and when he's not making great food stateside, he can be found grilling and smoking abroad in Australia. We discussed his fondness for #Yoder smokers as well as some of his other smokers. If a cooker can hold temperature and impart smoke flavor, then Smokey Cue can master it. 

    We cover these topics and more in the podcast including his fondness for  @NeilSarap BBQ rubs. @smokeycue can be found on TikTok and YouTube. Also make sure to check out his daily posts on Instagram for great cooking inspiration!
