If your smoker is like my Lang you will still have to put a stick or two an hour to keep up the temperatures. It's a labor of love or the price we pay for low and slow.

Whether judging or just recreational eating--I see two different kinds of "black" bark/crust.
Hard to describe, but one is just "cooked" and has a shine and just appears, well, black. No big deal.
The other black looks like charcoal--YUCKY- and does appear to be burnt.
Other than judging-I peel off the YUCKY appearing stuff and give it a try. The "other" type of black coating- I just eat it all, no problem.

While judging, I eat it as presented and score it accordingly.
If it is the YUCKY looking version, it will not earn top scores for presentation.
Taste is taste and I score as it falls there.

Cooking, both for comp and recreational, I try to stay away from black bark/crust. Not always possible, but a fun attempt and gives me a goal.
No big deal to me.

Probably confusing, but not my first time at that

Sled,

Sorry you were not so pleased with the results.. go with the gut and use the flavors you like best. If it's you're own rub even better.

I sent you a PM with a wood source I located in Nassau County but have not used yet as I still have a lot of wood from Prianti Farms in Dix Hills where Phil recommended some of us LIFO's go...

You may get a little extra help by picking up a few firebricks to put in the bottom of the cooking chamber to help retain some heat. I bought some at Jetmore in Wantagh for $20. 4 bricks per box. About 4" x 2" x 9". I then saw them for $17 as the Ace True Value in Bellmore. Same brand.

SledNeck - check this out over on the other forum about rib color in comps.

Not saying I agree, but some more judges thoughts.

Vinny, can you share that source for wood you have in Nassau? I need a place to get some wood.

Hey now !!!Yeah BQ... it could have gotten ugly real quick !!!

Rich,

I was at Friendly Farms Market (formerly Fruggies Farm) on Merrick Ave. in East Meadow, just north of the SS Parkway.

Noticed a very large pile of cut wood logs on the land that was never there before.. New owners as part of the agreement of the sale are allowing the former owner to store and sell wood on the property as he has a tree trimming business. $100 for a half cord, $175 for a full cord or they can charge by whatever you want.

The woman owner did not know too much about the wood varieties as she just acts as the seller. I also noticed a second pile in a different location. I am assuming one was seasoned. She gave me the business card of the guy who has the tree trimming business if I had specific questions. I have not called yet to see if he has specific woods or would be available to come by one day before I buy.

I still have a pile of wood from Prianti Farms in Dix Hills that Phil told us about so I've been putting it off. Prianti was very good too but this place is literally a mile from my house which is convenient and may be less for a delivery if I wanted a cord delivered. Not sure what Prianti charges for the same amount.

Good Luck... If you stop in or call them before I do, let me know how it goes
