Over the years, the Posse has seen — and used — many guides to smoking times and temperatures for barbecue.

This chart from the folks at Bro BBQ is one of the most comprehensive we’ve run into. It includes seafood and a couple veggies as well as beef, pork, lamb, and poultry.

It comes to us from Jack Thompson, the founder of BroBBQ.com, who said he was looking for information on barbecue recipes when he ran into our post from a while ago about smoking brisket in your backyard.

“Great stuff!,” Thompson wrote in an email.

Thanks, Jack.

He then said he was trying to get his smoking times and temps infographic in front of as many eyes as he could and he wondered if we would help.

Yes, we will. Barbecue is, indeed, a brotherhood.

“To us, every BBQ attempt is a learning experience,” Thompson writes on Bro BBQ’s Web site. “It teaches us to be patient, humble, spontaneous, and sociable.”

We agree.
