Not to sounds like a smart @$$, but the reason why it is not a staple in bbq is because no one that i know if uses it and wins with it (in competition bbq) now if you go out there and become TOY in ribs using it and tell someone you are using it, it will become the next big thing in comp bbq and it will start to trickle down into back yard bbq techniques like squeeze butter.
