I cut the “tube” down the middle length ways – then I apply my BBQ rub and let it sit to reach room temp. Cutting it like this lets me get more rub on the meat. I put it on the smoker (230 degrees) for at least an hour. I bring it off the smoker and slice it into half inch pieces –put them into an aluminum pan and put a light coat of BBQ sauce on them and back into the smoker until the sauce sets – about 30 minutes or so.
I have also tossed some sautéed sweet onion and bell pepper in the coating part.
