    His second book, "Fire and Smoke: A Pitmaster's Secrets ", came out in May 2014.
    For his Seminar, we will focus on chicken. If you've been around barbecue surely you have heard about how Big Bob created the signature white sauce for chicken that is oft imitated but never duplicated (heaven knows, I've tried). If you visit the restaurants, you must order it. He has also created a very popular dish called Loaf Pan Chicken, in his book. We'll talk about selecting birds, preparing them, grilling, smoking, rotisserie, spatchcock, and how competition cooks do it.

    For homework, check out his books and read my article attempt to replicate his Big Bob Gibson's Bama Birds with White Barbecue Sauce.

    In this Seminar we talked about his famous white sauce for chicken, his wonderful loaf pan chicken, airline chicken, turkey, some of his other recipes, and more.

      I know it is a chicken talk but maybe you could ask about why they use hickory...

        Only slightly off-topic: the family and I took a weekend road trip to the North Carolina location and the staff was wonderful to us. They told us they were out of chicken, and we were disappointed because we'd come so far primarily for the chicken. After we placed our orders, the waitress came back out and said that they discovered that they had one chicken left after all, and they gave it to us. Gratis. It didn't occur to us until later that that chicken was almost certainly some staff member's dinner. They also gave us a couple bottles of their sauce, so I played them a few fiddle tunes. It was a great time!

          Meathead I read a whole chicken recipe in the Big Bob Gibson BBQ cook book by Chris Lilly and he said to place the chicken on the void side of the cooker. Will you ask him where the "void" side of the cooker is? Thanks

            That is the indirect side, the side void of coals.

          He means the side void of fire. Indirect cooking.

                  I just watched the video and it is chocked full of great information. Thanks Meathead and Chris Lilly! I think Meathead had a good time with this video, and as others have said, great job on the production. I also ordered both books - Kindle.

                    Meathead, the look on your face was awesome when Chris started talking about putting brisket drippings in a bloody mary. I thought you were about to explode!

                      I watched this video last night. Another fantastic video Meathead, definitely worth joining the pit masters club for these seminars alone. The video inspired me to whip up a batch of the white sauce using the recipe on this site. All we had were boneless skinless breasts, but, WOW, this stuff is amazing! We used almost the entire batch on 4 small chicken breasts. My wife and boys (14 & 17) loved the stuff. I can't wait to make a double batch with a couple of spatchcock chickens.

                      Thanks again for another great seminar.
