    Greetings From The Sierras

    A pleasure to meet all of you. I'm here to accomplish a couple of things during the Rona. I've set a few goals over the past few months and one of them is to improve my skills with the grill.

    Specifically, I'd like to learn how to duplicate the recipe for the Detroit style rib I used to enjoy many years ago in the Detroit/Windsor area. I believe these were prepared on a spit, were spareribs, and had a rub, no sauce. My favorite was at Tunnel BBQ, located in Windsor. But Checker and Zukin's in Detroit were pretty good too!

    I found the Tunnel website and I've written an email to them inquiring if the sauce and/or rub they have for sale is what I recall from the 60's. We will see if they reply.

    So, I'm on a quest to recreate the sauce, rub, and then learn what cut of rib I need. While I'm at it, I need some info/advice on what equipment I need to pick up to check this bucket list item, off. I have a 20 year old Weber Silver B that is down, ready to be rebuilt, so I'll buy a new grill. I have a neighbor who needs a project and I'll give the old one away. Was thinking the four burner genesis 435 or the the Summit four burner. Obviously, I need to do more research.

    So the plan is to settle in with a couple cold pops and do some reading and research here. Of course, if any of you are inclined to want to point me in the right direction, or share any thoughts you may have, I'd be very appreciative.

    If this was a biker forum, I'd say, "Rubber Side Down." Not sure what you BBQ guys say to each other!

    So, I'll stick with something safe, Go, Blue!

    Welcome to the Pit!

                        Welcome from TN. I grew up in Detroit, don't remember Zukins or Checker. There was a place a couple of blocks from our house on Grand River that I used to go to a lot, but they have been closed for awhile and I don't remember the name. And you are right - let's go blue!

                              Yo, Fireman. Are you kidding? Bo was the man and the battles with Woody were just great. There was nothing better than waking up on a Saturday morning and walking over to the Big House! Senior year we had 50 yard line seats and great memories to this day. And Bob Ufer was THE Meechigan man. Blue lost a great broadcaster when he slipped away. Jackson and Ufer ... they were college football to me.Thanks for the memories, Fireman!

                          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.
