Our Smoke

One of the keys to great BBQ is creating a smoke that imparts the flavors you desire.  So, when Tim sat down to develop Crossbuck's smoke, he wanted a blend that provided just the right amount of smokiness with a touch of sweetness.  The result is a blend of post oak, hickory and fruit wood.

Post Oak

Don't let its exciting name fool you, post oak is actually just the oak found prominently in central Texas and used to make fence posts.  However, it also works great in BBQ by providing a nice, consistent heat with a very mellow flavor.

Given the mellow nature of post oak, Tim adds in some hickory to give Crossbuck's Q a clean, smoky flavor.

Fruit Woods

Finally, to impart some sweetness and bring out the sugars in the rub, Tim rotates in various fruit woods like apple, pecan or cherry.
