I prefer and always use granulated garlic. But garlic isn't a requirement by any means. The true Texas style is straight up salt and pepper for the most part. But, I like what garlic brings to the table in rubs. Good luck with the cook!
Now I can't await the weekend to arrive, the Q is scheduled for Sunday. The only missing part is the parchment, which I will not be able to get here, so either I can find some kind of butcher's paper, or I'll have to stick to aluminum foil instead.
