Sharing you recipes and techniques question.

Postby TexasPyro » Tue Sep 03, 2013 3:10 pm

I have a question regarding what yall tell your friends and family when they ask for specifics relating to your recipes and techniques. I have had some decent success this year competing and even more success with friends and family. They simply love the Q I have been producing as of late, so much so that many of them are now calling and asking for exact instructions and recipes. Needless to say I am somewhat reluctant to just give the info out to every one, now if my mom calls and asks then of course I'd share, but I have several friends that want the information that Ive worked very hard on and spent thousands of dollars and countless hours perfecting. Am I the only one who is slow to give away the farm? How do yall handle it?

The only information I ever share is what is easily found in any good BBQ forum such as this one. Basic techniques, temps, time, etc should be shared with those who are interested. I wouldn't share any recipe/ingredient that was unique to my cooking processes. Just my one-fiftieth of a buck. :out:

I think you'll find that the better cookers will share almost everything even so far as to let you hang out when they are cooking so long as you don't get your nose in the way. The reason for that is the difference is in little things they do that others probably won't even notice like the tenderness feel or when and if to wrap, picking out the right piece of meat to start with.
Had an old comp cooker tell me "if you have any success with a category like a top 10, keep doing it the same way, it'll get better".

There's a lot more to good Que than just a recipe.

Besides, most folks won't follow the directions so you're still safe.

BBQ isn't about recipes,it's technique. If you produce good Q you've paid your dues. Gotta go High Plains Drifter just came on.

Funny thing. A guy at work saw the World Steak cookoff on TV and tells me "the best guys only use salt and pepper". I told him, that is the only thing you will get out of any one who has a real advantage. At least to an audience that large.
