Yesterday the weatherman was calling for 45 degrees, little wind and sun. Sounding good, gonna do some Southern Style Barbecue! Got two picnics and a bunch of CSR's to smoke over hickory and applewood mix. Decided to try 3 different rubs on the CSR's, one of which was my own. Made it last night with some Chile Lime seasoning and Big Belly Rub from TASUNKAWITKO- My plan was to save the rinds for some cracklin's or baked beans, so I skinned the picnics- Woke up this morning to 32F, spitting freezing rain, winds 15 mph gusting to 22 the weatherman says. Oh well, no worries...we're smokin' anyway! Rubbed the picnics with a tweaked version of my house rub. Substituted about 30% Sweet Hungarian paprika for Sweet Spanish Smoked and changd my nutmeg/cinnamon combo to allspice instead. Smells great and looking forward to seeing the results- Have 5 CSR's. Two on the left got a BEER-B-QUE's house rub, the two in the middle got my concoction and the one on the right got RICHOSO's hot rub! Fired up the smoker and here we go- Gonna stick with 225-240 all day dependent on the wind. Steady right now at 10 mph, with small gusts, but we're shielded by the house and the huge sycamore. Freezing rain has stopped but I'm sure it will kick in again. No matter...we're havin' barbecue!
