Thanks fellas...I gotta tell ya I was sweating it but the BBQ gods were on my side yesterday (I think cause I followed the PBC directions with exception to lighter fluid, I used a chimney starter)...now I have some confidence.
In Case you wanted to know, I made my own rib rub using Brown Sugar, Kosher and Sea Salt, two types of paprika, fresh crushed pepper medley (black, white and red), alepo chili powder, crushed ancho chili, granulated garlic, granulated honey, garlic powder, cayenne and chinese 5 spice..
for the chicken I used the All Purpose Spice from PBC. And the sauce was a Sweet Onion BBQ sauce I picked up at William Sonoma which I liked very much.
Here's to next time.
