Barabicu and Ribsticks Take Different Approaches to Barbeque

Barabicu and Ribsticks Take Different Approaches to Barbeque

A Tale of Two 'Cues
If there was a better way to produce the seductively smoky, juicy and tender qualities of barbecued meats that so many of us obsess over, I'm certain that the technique would have been unearthed during the past couple hundred years that modern American barbecue has been kicking around. And if somebody did discover a better mousetrap, I'm pretty sure plastic bags would not have anything to do with it.
