If we never forget the basics, we can go to the top.
But as long as we learn from each step we've made progress, even in a not so good cook.

You're better than me. Some days I swear I feel my brain is physically oozing out knowledge down the side of my head. I'm way too young for this....

Great post

I've fallen victim to many of the same trappings (rubs, different charcoal, new cookers, etc.). Makes me feel better knowing I'm not the only one.

I was a homebrewer for many years and stopped for a couple of years because I was getting worse instead of better. I've vowed to get back into it and begin at the beginning.

I agree with the K.I.S.S. premise. Not to say I believe anything beyond Salt and Pepper is a sin, but I think consistent results come from consistent actions being taken, with minor variations. It's how one gets good at anything near as I can tell.

I got another slew of appliances to get in my bi-annual budget splurge, but once that's done I'm going to get another cooker, and work on that one. Really vexed between a P.B.C... or a Keg/Ceramic cooker. Gonna have to make a post on that when I get close to the time to pull the trigger on that.

Way I bake... I think I'm leaning towards the Keg/Ceramic style. But those P.B.C.'s look like a lot of fun...

I walked in those same moccasins for 25 yrs. then one day I tripped cracked my coconut and realized that the lessons I learned around Grandads pit and keepin my dad company fetchin beers produced some of the best Q I ever ate. Needless to say the G-man had to pay extra at the scales from all the stuff I trashed trying to make top shelf BBQ, Rubs & sauces, Gizmos of all sorts sent it all to the dump and reset my program. Now High tech luxury is a $5 oven thermo a $4 cow poker and allot of excellent BBQ. Keep on one day you'll get there too.

Thanks for the timely thoughts, I can see myself on the path to Oklahoma... I need to document each cook to help me set my base of knowledge. I see that Evernote is one solution - are there others? Thank heavens for the Brethern!
