I think it was there that the MYTH that simmering was at least more "traditional" than we give it credit for and when you say something like "one thing bbq ain't is simmering (or boiling) one has to pause... and think about our fore-fathers - not Mike Mills or Billy Bones Wall but guys like Walter Jetton that predate "packers." Of course the sandiego never said this so he and I are cool. Its the rest of you artseholes I worry about.

However it is the OFFICIAL position that not foiling is just my preference and also I am an expert at it... and have taught it can be done with great results... but a guy once said in here.. BBQ is the end result.
