OK - might be getting myself in trouble here with this but - why the HECK would you spend so much time controlling fire, meat, etc. & skip out on what really makes the Q - the seasoning & sauce. Sure - I guess if you want to make Plowboys' Q & not your own - that's your choice.
Me - I've spent years taking recipes from a variety of sources (Q books, internet, friends, cooking shows, etc) & made them my own. Granted - my goal was to cook for the public, but how can you actually call it "yours" if the rub & the sauce - essentially the building blocks of BBQ - are someone else's?
Seriously - make small quantities - do a quick Google search on basic BBQ rub (or basic brisket rub or basic pork rub, etc) & work from there. Same with sauces. Nothing against those who sell rubs & sauces (I do that as well) but if you're serious about Q you HAVE to get into your own rubs & sauces.
