Full circle back to old school, with a few adaptations. No fancy gadgets, except an analog gauge for cooker temps and hand held digital for internal temps, never use to use anything for that. No fancy handcrafted rubs or sauces, even though from time to time well make my old school sauce. Salt, pepper and garlic most times for rub but I do buy some if it looks interesting, same goes for sauces. I don't do any slathers or injections anymore.
Major difference is back in the day, chicken, ribs, pork butt and brisket were all I ever smoked, now I really try to mix it up with all kinds of things and will experiment to that degree. I still get all the raves about my food with a lot less hassle.
Makes me chuckle when reading a post and someone is reinventing the wheel. Every once in awhile they hit on something worth taking a look at but not that often these days. Now this old dog can learn new tricks now and then, that is why I come here.
