Matt Pittman’s method for smoking pork butt includes all the details that make the difference, from how to create a killer bark to the best ways to gauge tenderness. His method for adding even more flavor during shredding is easy yet genius. Don’t skip it.
Find out why Matt Pittman calls these giant beef ribs “the best bite in barbecue, end of story.” Though you can find these dinosaur-sized beef plate racks in just about any supermarket in Texas, folks living in other parts of the country may need to buy them mail order or ask their butcher to special order them. (If so, ask for a 123A rib.) While short ribs can come from this cut, you want these monster ribs to be long, at least 8 inches and up to a foot in length. When it comes to flavoring them, Texas barbecue seasoning is mainly salt and pepper, but Matt likes the added garlic in his Holy Cow BBQ Rub. Alternatively, you can use a mix of Traeger Coffee Rub and Traeger Beef Rub, a favorite combo from Traeger's Chad Ward.
Matt Pittman keeps this brisket simple but shares all the secrets to its success here. In Texas, brisket is mainly seasoned with salt and black pepper, but most BBQ joints in the Lone Star State will add a little something else, like Lowry’s, too. Matt goes with a liberal coating of his Holy Cow BBQ Rub followed by a light sprinkling of his Holy Gospel BBQ Rub. Other great options are Traeger Beef Rub or Prime Rib Rub. No matter what you season it with, if you follow Matt's advice, you'll wind up with slices of some damn fine brisket.
Bite-sized BBQ deliciousness. Pork belly is slow-smoked, then tossed and sauced for a sweet, caramelized finish. Serve them as an appetizer and they won’t last long.
With the perfect balance of sweet and heat, these spares are hard to beat. Matt Pittman's recipe combines two different rubs, an apple juice spritz, and a sweet, saucy finish for BBQ rib perfection.
