Texas Crutch Boat
The power of the Texas Crutch is almost unbelievable. Some would say that its boiling your meat but its not. Its cooking your meat in the flavor Azue. Direct connection of meat and Azue.
We were on the Radio the other night and the man said that he couldn’t tell a bit of difference between pan cooking and Texas Crutch/Boat Cooking. I was a little surprised. I’ve had some other people say that but the champions do Texas Crutch and Boat Cooking. Try both and decide. Seems like putting it in a pan would not be as good on this one make your own choice.
When you talk about wrapping your meat your talking about holding in flavors and cooking the meat to perfection. I’ve seen some people cook good meat without wrapping at all. The problem is that it will get tough on the outside. Instilling that tenderness and moisture is a lot harder without wrapping. Water Smokers are a cooker like wrapping. It has a water pan it and adds moisture as the cooker goes along. It has a water level detector and a hose hook up to automatically add water when needed.
