And, he says you’re all invited to his BBQ…visualization, that is. Check out this visual dashboard of the growth in BBQ grill trends which were created with Silver Spotfire.

I start the smoker with gas, but the flavor comes from the wood chips


My personal preference w/ wood chips is apple wood. It imparts a sweet flavor that isn’t as bitter as some of the typical woods. Pulled pork on our patio this weekend!
