This is an interesting report on the BGE.

In the Alabama town where my wife was raised, there is a man named Melvin who smokes the finest Boston butts from which I have ever built a pulled pork sandwich. Word has it Melvin used to sell the butts out of the back of his pickup before the county health department made him go legit. Now he cooks out of a storefront two Saturdays a month, and the lines stretch into the parking lot.

I’ve stood in those lines.

I wanted to smoke a butt like Melvin does.....

    Wow - that story is getting a lot of play. It has been in quite a few different newspapers lately.

    Nice article. Someone gotta tell Peter to use hardwood lump charcoal and not to soak the smokin wood. The paper bag method is interesting.....
    Has anyone else tried this method?
