BTW, this might be a little off topic, but am I the only one who doesn't believe the BBQ joints on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives when they reveal their top secret/award winning rubs and sauces? I've noticed more than a few times that the rubs they actually end up putting on the meat are a completely different color than what they whipped up.
Thing is if you give two people the same cooker, rub recipe, sauce recipe, meat and fuel, park them side by side, with everything being equal, you will still wind up with two similar end results only different. Its those little nuances that each individual imparts to the process that will matter somehow. If I used a recipe for anything I would gladly give it to anyone that ask, however I may toy with you for awhile.
