Pork lard?


  I watched an episode of "BBQ Science" where the guy put some pork lard in a small tin tray, left it in the smoker while the ribs were smoking and then brushed the melted, smokey lard on the ribs for basting. I may try.

    I have injected thick pork chops with lard. It is life changing. I have never basted with it, but I’m sure it’s great.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.
