Texas Turtle...you know Austin wasn't my first choice coming from College Station but that's where employment led me...it isn't too bad of a town.
Any comments about Blues Hog Sauce? Any other recommendations for sauces to baste ribs with before turn in?
Can you give a little more info on your existing technique and what youre cooking on?
I'm not much on toothpicks for ribs (other things, yes), Bending/poking - YES!
If you're using anything like the 3-1-1 method, it's an easy adjustment.
Oh yeah - definitely pull them membranes. Sauce is a big variable, and it's usually said that you need to adjust to your target - it varies regionally and judge to judge. Blues hog is good, but fairly distinctive. You may want to use something like that as a base, and modify it.
