      Yeah, definitely refrigerate before you slice it all up. Cutting a bite or three when fresh off the smoker is also a good way to go

      After it is out of the smoker, does it need to be fried? Or it's done and as is. It looks totally awesome... I have to try sometime soon.

      It is smoked to 160 so it can be eaten as is. Pan frying makes it better bacon though!

          • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

          I smoked 12 racks of SLC ribs yesterday with half of them having only S&P and the other half with rub. These are what I called Texas ribs with only S&P and I also brush them with Apple & Brown Sugar with Habanero Rib Candy and some Apricot & Habanero Texas Pepper jelly Click image for larger version

            So, the Berkshire ribs from Publican Quality Meats. Thin racks. Not what I associate with Berkshire, but a butcher who doesn't usually cut spares might butcher the cut, rather that do a good job butchering. That's on PQM. Shiners all down the short end. Had a real pain of a time removing the membrane on one rack. Got almost all of it though. Love my boning knife.

            Two hours of dry brine, light on the salt to suit wife. 2 T of MMD per side of each rack. They took it with a splash of water. No problem with adhesion.

            Perfect day for the Genesis. 75*, overcast and light breeze, was able to hold 225-235 really easily. Cooked until they did the bend test. Might need some remedial bend test study, but they cracked.

            Took em off, Warp 10 on the left of the grill, sear burner on. Dome temp reading 600 something. A light coat of Lillie Q smoky (I am gonna track down some Black Swan for my next bottle), sear for a couple minutes, and take em off.

            Good ribs. Very good ribs. My takeaways:
            Don't use the hipster butcher.
            I am more of a dry rib with vinegar mop guy. Then let the wife sauce them.
            Last meal ribs are the truth.

              She who must be loved loves her some filet. I suspect it's the tenderness versus what she grew up with, but might be portions. Any rate, 2.5 hours at 129F with the Nomiku WiFi, lightly salted, peppered, garlic powdered and cheap regular olive oil, then seared on the Genesis, flipping frequently.

              Wife loved it. I liked it more than I usually like tenderloin.

                From the sv bag I pat them with a paper towel. Drop them in a super hot skillet for 1 min, turn, add the bag juice along with two T's butter & fresh thyme basting for 1 min. Remove, season, & plate. Spoon more butter from the pan if desired. I think this is a fast, easy, & delicious tenderloin.

                Yeah, I do that, too. I was thinking about something I saw today, about heating my cast iron (when it gets here... production delay from Field) and pan and into the oven under the broiler. 1 minute should produce an ungodly perfect sear on both sides. Or 1 min and flip and 30 seconds.

                CapeMay, If you aren't doing the heat of the bag juice to coagulate the albumin before using it, you might be making a cloudier, less awesome sauce than you might otherwise be making. A quick microwaving of the bag juice, than a run through a coffee filter in a strainer, and you have the pure gold.

                I rarely eat lettuce on my burgers since we typically don't have any, but man for some reason lettuce amps up a burger 10 fold.

              Howdy Meathead Maniacs!

              So as many of you know, I was planning on a Simple 4th of July Cook. I wasn't entertaining a big group of folks as I've done for years. I was just having my brothers over to drink a little beer, grill some dogs, burgers, and sausages, eat a few chips, and watch a little baseball, etc. Well, here is the result of a "Simple 4th of July!" I knew I was in trouble and the best laid plans of mice and CC were shot to hades when I walked out of Sam's Club with over $200 in food and beverage!

              Here is the table with the appiteasers on it.



              Here is TheBeast getting loaded up for his time to shine! I spiral cut jalapeño and cheese sausage, and Oscar Mayer hot dogs (what else? ) My brother loves spiral cut ever since I introduced him to them.



              Next up on the grate was the burgers. Gotta stage this cook ...



              Here is a money shot that is just a couple of simple dogs, some German potato salad made by my brother who lives just around the corner and an ear of corn.



              That's all the money shot. However, I guess my house is now known as BBQ Central as all of a sudden, my neighbors show up carrying burgers, buns, and beer, and they just came in and sat down! At the end of it all there were about 30 folks here. It looked like the swarm of locusts of Biblical proportions eating at my table! A great time was had by all.

              Just a great 4th of July here at ChezChef! I hope your 4th was as much fun as was mine!

              If you try this make sure to flip the ribs top to bottom every hour so they cook evenly.

                And I didn't slice them. I just cut em up into 3 partial slabs. Knife was dull so the bark ripped off a bit (not my knife). They ate good, but wouldn't have won any BBQ competitions on appearance

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

              the good one grill
              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. 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.

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!
