    What are you talking about? this is a tread on HBH not BBQ!
    I meant a good recipe for HBH when dealing with syrup by the drum...I keep hearing stuff floating around...but there is not "the" recipe

    I think I've finally perfected the recipe for making a quart of home-made "feeding stimulant" concentrate that you spoon out at the rate of 1 tsp per quart of syrup and you can pro-rate that dose for a drum. It mixes well and you can make up any size or quantity. It costs about 1/3 the price of commercially available stimulants, honey-b-healthy is but one of several. The cost of the lemongrass oil and the spearmint oil are still the major expenses. I need to post this when I get time.

    Hey King,

    I mix by the drum. I use 27 droppers of Lemongrass and Spearmint and 13.5 of Thymol when feeding.
