Low n Slow? What Is It?

For some, low-and-slow BBQ is more than just a manner of cooking; it’s a way of life. It’s the technique of smoking large cuts of meat for up to 24 hours (think whole hogs) until the meat is the consistency of butter, the flavors pop, and your visitors think you’ve created meaty heaven.

The ultimate symphony of smoke, seasonings, and heat yields some of the most authentic and basic flavors you’ll ever encounter.

This method of cooking, which has been there since the dawn of time and mastered during the slave era of American history, has made its way to Australia thanks to the surge in popularity of America.

The meat cuts are huge, like very huge. They were the scraps from the more valuable pieces, handed to slaves, and within the reach of the impoverished. The flavors burst at the seams as they honed their talents by cooking for hours while tending farms and the like. Eventually, this style of cooking caught on and American Low n’ Slow was established.

Today, you may earn a lot of money just by cooking, thanks to contests all over the world, but if you’re like the majority and just want to wow your friends and family, we at Appliances Online will walk you through the process from cooker purchase to smoking perfection.
