Do You Like Your Meat Smoked, Barbecued, or Grilled?

I, myself, prefer meat of all kinds…just not raw, or shoe leather. I am an omnivore. I like my side vegetables…but there must be meat involved! When you cook your meat outside, do you prefer smoking or barbecued; the long, slow method with indirect heat, or grilled fast with direct heat?

I suppose it always depends on what kind of meat that you are cooking. I mean a brisket you want cooked low and slow in your bbq smoker. It tends to be a tough piece of meat that will benefit from low temperatures and a slow cooking process. Adding smoke to this mix only aides in a wonderful finished product.

A hamburger or chicken breast you want grilled. Quick and fast so that it doesn’t dry out.

Turkey is great with indirect heat in a smoker or on the grill, but still low and slow…unless you are using a turkey fryer. Then it’s high and relatively fast.

Then there is fish. You can grill or smoke fish. Just preference I guess. Then it also depends on what type of fish. You don’t smoke flounder, but you can grill or smoke salmon.

As I said, I prefer meat of all kinds. Grilled, roasted, smoked, stewed, boiled, braised, and barbecued. Please forgive me if I have forgotten anyone.
