The competitive barbecue schedule - 9/10
On pages 114-115, Guy On Fire includes a flat-out fascinating schedule of the Motley Que team’s competition schedule. Its connection to a consumer cookbook is tenuous at best, but I’m lost in the Seinfeldian bob-and-weave of meat storylines across the page.
Friday, 11pm, pork butt: “Put butts on cooker, fat side up, 3rd shelf, set meat probe to 165º”
Saturday, 3am, brisket : “At 165º internal, wrap, add beef broth, set probe in flat muscle at 197º”
Saturday, 9:30am, ribs: “Baste"
Saturday, 1:30pm: ”BRISKET TURN-IN”
I’ve always wondered how these competitions go down. Now I know. Guy On Fire has cured my Summertime blues.
