Wash your meat under cold water to wash away contaminants. Don't worry - no shrinkage here.
Always coat your meat first with a high smoke oil - the oil acts as a glue for the seasoning.
Add honey to retain moisture and create a caramelized crunch.
Don't go light with rubs and seasoning. If you want to be different, bring the flavor!
After applying rub/seasoning, you may cook immediately or wait to allow the food to soak in flavor.
BBQ sauce can be a nice compliment, but add sauce during or after cooking.
