    • 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.

    My daughter attends the local university, McNeese St, about 9,000 students. She's involved at the Baptist Collegiate Ministries on campus, and they have a no-cost lunch for students on Mondays, at 11 and Noon. Well, what @BishopofBBQ with a cool new smoker and vending trailer could pass up such and opportunity to treat the students to the #FreeMealoftheYear!

    Ten Briskets
    400 Chicken Legs
    3 Pans of Smoked Beans...300 or so happy college students!

    theRibShack crew got them all trimmed and dry brined a day and a half before, Saturday. I got up before church on Sunday, applied generous coats of Big Bad Beef Rub and put them on the Mixon

    Here's the scene a couple of hours in. I gave them some spritzing with water along the way.

    And a little further along in the later afternoon. Pretty!!!!
    Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0010.JPG Views:	2 Size:	5.57 MB ID:	244037

    I'm doing some meat-side-up vs. fat-side-up on the new pit. Here is a meat-side-up sample. Looks nice!
    Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0011.JPG Views:	1 Size:	7.45 MB ID:	244041

    We pulled them after dark, and put them in the CVAP for holding until it was time to leave in the morning. Ok, we got distracted with the darn beans, and were slow to check some of them for doneness...and a couple of them were overcooked. DARN! I cut short perfection on the main thing (brisket) to get a good 2nd thing in there (beans). Oh well. It will still taste great.

    Monday morning we put the chicken on. Something around 400 legs, all with some salt and Cherry from Simply Marvelous. We were in a hurry, and I didn't get pic's. My apprentice was late, and that made things less fun. Here's a plate of chicken later in the afternoon
    Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0033.JPG Views:	1 Size:	6.05 MB ID:	244042

    The students love it, of course. Here's the scene, when we finally had a break to take a pic. There were 2 sets of students, both this full.

    And here is my lovely daughter, Hannah. She is incredible. I'm so proud.
    Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0031.JPG Views:	1 Size:	2.88 MB ID:	244039

    Oh, and the oversmoked beans...they ate every bite of them!
    Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0019.JPG Views:	1 Size:	7.60 MB ID:	244044

    And I got this rockin cool cutting board with a liberty eagle printed on it. Perfect for pictures of BBQ! (I held back 2 briskets to take pictures for the trailer and website that afternoon, but one of the helpers trimmed it, and it had too much fat and the pretty smoke ring was obscured. So, I carved up the briskets there at the photographer's house and they started making calls to friends so share it all out. #SuccessAnyway.)

    Another great #theRibList Day! So glad for friends to come by the house today and enjoy these spectacular prime, bone-in Beef Short Ribs, smoked over a pure wood fire on our new rig. The TV is a permanent part of Sunday Afternoon on theRibShack Rig, and all who came by today got to watch our beloved New Orleans Saints pull our a great win! Did I mention yet how glad I am God made cows? #LifeIsMoreFunOntheRibList #EachPhotoHasAStoryOnIt

    Troy has seen several of the Pic's I posted on Facebook and asked more than once, "Put me on that list!" So I did!

    We cooked one set of ribs as a plate, and here's the slice pic on the thickest part. The marbeling on these Prime puppies is so thick. Even when over rendered to about 210 degrees, they are full of delicious, perfect fat!

            Like all good adventures, the Road Trip is a memory maker, a prover of one's mettle. And, in #theRibShack's case, a really great chance to make more friends!

            One of my friends in all things ministry is a really cool dude, www.WillMancini.com. He is launching a new personal vision clarity process, www.lifeyounique.com, and in the process, hosted an intensive at his home outside Houston for about 20 participants. He asked me if I could launch Day 1 of the process with some Protein Based Memory Making - YesICan!!

            Will, bye the way, is who gave me the handle @BishopofBBQ, so he has a special place in the story!

            This is back in the 2nd week of December. I'd had the trailer for nearly 2 months, but we are very much still just getting started on outfitting it with all the details and the packing and organizing of ALL THE STUFF you need to be a roving pitmaster in chief. It took, like, forever to get all backed up. The time stamp on this pic is 11:14 pm. We were pulling out heading to Houston at 4:30 am, to beat the traffic and avoid that most-deadful situation of being behind schedule on a barbecue smoke.
            Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_1081.JPG Views:	1 Size:	4.40 MB ID:	263146
            Yes sir, that is a red truck pulling that red trailer!

            I gave Will a couple of options, but let him know that if he wanted to make the most profound statement to his guests, I could recommend nothing as highly at Bone-In Beef Short Ribs! He agreed with my recommendation. We cooked all but 2 plates cut into individual bones. Here are some of them, generously coated in Big Bad Beef Rub. We cut them the day before and began the beloved dry-brine process, then Rubbed them up, with vegetable oil slather, right before they went on the pit.

            Being from Louisiana and all, I absolutely LOVE dishes made with the holy trinity of vegetables, Onion, Bell Pepper and Celery. We added poblano peppers and jalapenos as well. I would have added garlic, but, forgive me, forgot. The pans are absolutely stunning

            I've decided to try making a bunch of the veggie mix, sauteeing them in my super-cool Louisiana jambalaya pot (small Video Here! https://youtu.be/tKNp6fOEs6c) so i'll have batches I can grab to make several servings of beans at different times. I love those beans! Thank you Meathead

            All our cooks on the big Myron Mixon 72XC are done with wood. In this case, Oak, nice and seasoned, with a couple of Pecan pieces as well that sneaked onto our wood pile. Fires are soooooooooooccooooooooollllll!!!

            Awesome Coals stage! Cooking on a larger stickburner with a bigger fire is great - I can have an absolutely clean, blue smoke situation for THE ENTIRE COOK!!!! (If you recall any of my prior cooks on the Jambo, it's small size and insulated box mandates smaller fuel, meaning smaller splits, to keep an active fire and not over-spike temps - which means a shorter time between fire tendings, and some fire rescue's if you have to leave for an hour.)

            After the meats were on, we busted out the Temporary RibShack Colors. We'll be flying them permanentaly with the artwork going on the side of the trailer in the next month or so. #SmokeRingsForever

            The Myron Mixon 72XC uses a waterpan as the heat sync. That fire brings on a rolling boil and here it paints a memory of Picaco's Starry Night in the water!

            We cooked the ribs at 250-275, and the first ones were done in about 4.5 hours. What do you think?

              Well, this unit has a Water Pan, so driving with water in it is a messy proposition.

              I have driven with the fire lit on borrowed cookers - very fun! And I'll have the fire lit when towing this one in parades, for sure. Just have to keep a small fire and a little water in the pan to prevent mess.

                  • 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.

                  Ok, I didn't get around to finishing the story of my Bone-In Beef Short Rib cook at my buddy Will's place in Houston in December, where all the food pics happened!

                  We cooked most of them cut, but 2 we cooked in the 3 bond plate, so we could get this picture...

                      maverick PT55 thermometer

                      A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                      slow n sear

                      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                      The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

                      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.

                      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. 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.

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.
