    I love BBQ'ing.

    This morning, I put on 2 Boston Butts (about 15 lbs. total) with a Memphis-style rub (white sugar, brown sugar, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ginger powder, rosemary). The wife and I are going to be having a lot of pulled pork sandwiches for a while!

    Last weekend, for Father's Day, I BBQ'ed a whole packer brisket (about 15 lbs.). I even made "burnt ends" for the first time (which were amazing... now I know what all the rage is about). A couple weeks before that I Q'd a 7 lb. brisket (just the flat) that was cut-with-a-fork tender.

    I also have a bunch of St. Louis ribs sitting in my refrigerator for next weekend. Haven't decided what sort of rub/mop/sauce I am going to do for those yet, but since I tend to like Carolina-style rubs, it will probably be either a vinegar-based or mustard-based sauce.

    I also BBQ whole chickens all the time. Pretty much every week. I used to do a lot of beer-can chicken, but now I mostly spatchcock them.

    Anyone else into Q'ing here?

    Too early for me when I saw this. My first thought was "what the hell is Black Belt Q'ing" I suck at grilling, though I try all the time. I've got some baby backs in the freezer and the only reason I haven't fired them up is I'm just not sure how to prepare them so that they eventually taste like heaven and fall off the bone.

    I know, I know...

    The condo I live in doesn't allow me to build the BBQ I want, stupid bylaws, that and making a fire pit on a suspended deck is a fire hazardo_O ... When I buy a house it's going to be bricked in wood buring BBQ... but until then this will have to do.
