I have to say, I don't much care for celery salt in my rub anymore. I used to use it, a lot, then less, than even less and then none, and that was the right amount for me. I tell folks that if they wanted a ring, they shoulda got married. I smoke meat, sometimes there is a smoke ring, sometimes not.
I would not walk away from that point, for sure.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
