Summer is a time for outdoor get-togethers, relaxing under the sun and the “Great American BBQ.”  Every cook who pronounces their sauce the best has a family recipe or tried and true process to make that claim.  But what’s really behind the best barbeque?  Is it the perfect blend of secret seasonings, the marinating, the basting, the wood chips, or is it the chemistry?  Get ready to unveil the chemistry behind one of the most sought after aromas of barbeque – smoke house flavor.
