"Adding two or three chunks of wood to the coals adds a great smoke flavor to meat. I prefer pecan wood, which adds a mellow smoke flavor, but any good wood will work.

Oak is also a good option for a mellow smoke flavor." - Johnny Trigg

But there's also a hickory flavor, called Hickory Smoke and one that has a little heat." - Johnny Trigg

My parents always provided that." - Marco Rubio

"We're still promoting stupid wasteful behavior in agribusiness - everything from ethanol production for cars to genetically modified crops. In commerce just about everything we do politically is in the service of WalMart and the systems tied to it. In transportation, we could, for instance, have compelled General Motors to produce railroad rolling stock as a condition of their bail-out, but we didn't do that. Instead, we're chasing the phantom of electric cars - and, believe me, we are going to be mortally disappointed how that works out." - James Howard Kunstler
