      I did check the tire pressure in all those trailer tires before I loaded it. The wood guy is about an hour away, in the woods... So I wanted to prevent any tire problems.

      That would be a fun idea next time! #TonsOfWood

    • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
      1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
      2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
      3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
      4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
      5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
      6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
      7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
      8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
      9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
      10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
      11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
      12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
      12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

      Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

      I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
      I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

    I don’t know if I’ve updated you guys on what it looks like to scale up your rub making game. It looks like 60 pound boxes arriving from Penzeys.com. If you haven’t opened up a big bag of incredible Black pepper before...Dude! Open up a 10 pound bag of said Black Pepper, and it’s even better!!!

            Our local university has a cultural series called Banners, bringing art and speakers and such to the city. It's pretty cool. They have a big fundraiser, a Wine and Food Tasting called Rouge et Blanc. It's grown and is now a pretty big deal. They sell 1,400 tickets, $125 each, and they all sold the 1st day! I'd call that popular!

            We entered this year, along with 45 or so other Food and Wine vendors. We were asked to make 1,400 tasting dishes. That's a lot!

            Wanting to make a big 'ole WOW! Impression, we pulled out the big guns:

            BEEF RIB Crumble over 5-Cheese Creamy Mac, served in a 2 oz cup with a cute Gelato Spoon! Not the best picture, but here are a couple of the tasty cups of happiness!

            The fillet on top of the rib is so fun to cut off. Beef Ribs are so great, as you all know. We sliced the filet cross grain, which is at a slight angle from 90 degrees. Then quartered the big slices so it was easy to git some rib in each of your 4-5 spoons of mac in the cup.

            Then you have to pull the side meat below the filet, and sprinkle it on top. I LOVE the side meat! Of course, the big pile of bones is just showing off!

              Looked like back ribs due to the curvature. All the shorts/plates/chuck ribs I get are completely flat. May just be the camera angle though. Anyway, beef ribs are all great. Probably my favorite... That a good brisket, or a Good hot gut

            I'm smoking some chucks this morning and been up since 6, bored because everyone else is asleep and I don't want to wake the boss and anger her! I've sat and read thru this ENTIRE thread! Paul, Bless you and your family. It's one thing to do a start up, another to do a start up Food Truck and entirely another thing to throw in plenty of Witnessing and charity!
            A young man that used to work at my work quit and started his own food truck...Fish from Heaven, here in Memphis. Having followed him along thru the trials and travails of getting a truck outfitted, getting the proper permits and getting thru the Health Dept, I would say you have done quite well. Good job, indeed!

            It's a new year, and I have a full 3 Person crew, plus my daughters and friends who work the register on big vend days. So...we've got enough capacity to Vend Regularly!

            I was driving back across our historic I-10 Cross-Pistol Bridge today, with a gorgeous view of "Lake Charles" and our downtown, and I just thought about how we are Vending in theLC, so I grabbed the phone, while safely driving, and snapped a few pics with all my Paul's Rib Shack merch/swag on display on the dash of my truck, along with a couple American Flags. The Cross-Pistols are the start of this pic. I Love it!

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

          the good one grill

          The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

          Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

          The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          NK-22-Ck Grill

          Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

          Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

          masterbuilt gas smoker

          Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
