3-2-1 Method for Competition Quality BBQ

Fire up the grill and follow this easy 3-2-1 method for legendary BBQ that will keep the crowds coming back for more.

Smoke Meat for 3 Hours

The first step to the 3-2-1 method is to smoke your meat for 3 hours, unwrapped at 225-250 degrees.

You can make smoker packets easily with your favorite type of wood chips and Reynolds Wrap® Pitmaster's Choice aluminum foil. Different types of wood chips will add different smoky flavors so don't be afraid to experiment to find your go-to flavors.

Wrap in Foil with Liquid for 2 Hours

Step 2 in the 3-2-1 method is to wrap the smoked meat in foil with a little liquid and cook for 2 hours at same temperature. This will lock in the moisture, making your BBQ deliciously tender.

Turn up the Heat for 1 Hour

The final step to the 3-2-1 method is to cook the meat for 1 additional hour at a slightly higher temperature while you baste with barbecue sauce.
