I live in Australia and love BBQ. Could you tell me what a Texas Crutch is? Regards,
Good to hear from Down Under. The term Texas Crutch refers to the use of aluminum foil when cooking barbecue. It seems some stubborn old dudes don’t think it’s right and they claim it all started in Texas. I don’t know where it started but I do know that most of the good barbecue cooks sometimes wrap their meat in foil for part of the cooking. It hurries things up a bit and it can save a dry looking piece of meat from going bad.
