  • Richard, that one really sounds good also.  Tough choice.  Might have to make half recipes of each

  • Konablue sounds really good.  What kind of soda do u put in? Cola?  Also if I delete the thyme would it change the taste that much?

    in Rub Comment by Mark0525 June 2015
  • Just my opinion I would think with all the moisture in the crock pot that they would get really  soggy

  • Thanks guys.  My first sauce I tried and now it will be the only one I make.  I was afraid of the vinegar but you really don't taste it.  Mark
  • I got it off garlic, onion, green pepper, dark rum, chili powder, black pepper, allspice, ground clove, dark brown sugar, water, ketchup, molasses, yellow mustard, cider vinwgar, hot sauce.  very good easy to make.
  • I need to chime in on this subject.  I finally finished a bag of Frontier.  It SUCKED!!!!! I bought it at Lowes.  I'm going to look at Home Depot and hope theirs is better.  Mark
  • anybody know where you buy those torches?  Or the looftlighter that FATCITY was talking about?
  • Thanks for all the comments.  SGH where to you get one of those?  they look pretty FATCITY, where do u get a looftlighter? I went to Lowes and bought Frontier brand.  Worth a shot.  Never had this problem before.  Thanks again…
  • I use a torch which has always worked great for me.  The lump is never wet because its under cover.If I keep at it it will eventually light.  I stir all the lump and I use a wiggle stick to make sure all the holes are open.  Everything that I use to…
  • why?  It seems like some do and some don't.  I'm confused  :((

    in Lump Comment by Mark0525 January 2014
  • I've been using GFS for years, never really had a bad bag.  U may be right that maybe I got a bad bag of BGE but I'm hoping I can find a local GFS and buy their lump and save a few bucks.  Thanks for your response.
