You have very strong opinions about things.
No problem with that, for sure

Can we assume you have cooked with the FAB products and have found measurable differences in the results?

Just curious.

Thanks for the compliment Tim....

No I have not used it, nor will I. There are too many chemicals and hormones in the food we eat already. Why add more?

I have not found any results, and probably never will, but I strongly feel that all of the health related issues we have, including some of the cancers, are a result of all of the chemical/hormone treated food.

I guess I am too much of an old "fart", and like it the old fashioned way too much.

Give me natural herbs and spices any day. More natural and better tasting.

Why even some here that use it say how it gives the meat a funny after taste....

Ok, enough for this topic.

NEXT...

We started using Fab B in July this year. Our brisket moved from the bottom 25th percentile to the top 25th percentile including a 2nd place, a 10th place, 2 11th places, and a 13th place. In the 7 years and 50+ contests prior our best was a 10th place.

I've since used Fab B in hamburger, meatloaf, tri-tip, and ribeye and have yet to be disappointed. At least you should give it a try.

I'm still not completely sure one way or the other. I've only used it once, at our last comp. Cooked two briskets, one injected with FAB B Lite and one with no injection. We cut the FAB B Lite with apple juice. The brisket with the FAB injection produced way way more juice and was more tender. However the other non injected brisket had a better taste. We turned in the non injected brisket and placed 17th out of 72 teams, our best showing ever in brisket (only three comps done total). We did take the juices from the injected brisket, poured into a pan and then took the slices from the non injected brisket and soaked/cooked them in the juices for a few minutes before placing in the turn in box. I think that helped. I look forward to doing another cook with the FAB B Lite cut with water.

In those opinions you say 'using Fab is cheating' LOL thats insane! Fab has chemicals thats a fact, but so does almost every sauce, rub, and marinade out there. So if your using any rub or sauce are you cheating? Also, using Fab does not guarantee a win, not even close! I know tons of teams who have used it and tanked! I also know tons of teams who use it and win. If it was an aromatic EVERYONE would use it. I was at a comp. this weekend and my brisket placed 1st and I do NOT use Fab...but several teams there do!

Serious question here....I put together a mix of FAB-B and did'nt use it all. I put the balance in a plastic bag a put it in the freezer to use for later. Was that wise?
