What makes great BBQ?

I thought this would be a good topic for discussion. What is it that you think makes BBQ taste great?

For me I think it is the layers of flavor in BBQ. You have the meat, the rub, the wood smoke, and of course the glaze or sauce or whatever else you want to add. I think when all of these flavors come together it makes for a wonderful taste experience.

I also love the fact that everyone cooks BBQ there own way and to there own tastes. That way there are so many chances to taste different BBQ! And that is a good thing!

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

I agree, it's all the different flavor combinations and the way people put them together in so many ways. I, for one, don't want to eat just smoked meat no matter how good the rub, sauce makes it bbq to me. Otherwise, I just call it smoked meat. LOL I hate when a caterer makes bbq and puts out some cheap storebought sauce to go with it. If I can make a unique sauce at home for pennies, surely these guys can do the same! LOL It doesn't matter to me if it's a mustard, vinegar, or even ketchup based sauce. I don't want the meat drowning in it but a little bit sure makes a difference, IMO!

The cook makes the best BBQ. It’s when you take a junk piece of meat and spend hours babying it putting some of your soul into it. That why BBQ from a wood/charcoal pit is better than something that comes off of an set it and forget it electric (IMO).

I think good "Q" is moist, tender and has a flavour that makes you say " Wwwwooooowwwww"
