    Bearded Butchers -- Ribs whats the difference?

    The butchering and knife skills are fantastic. Just amazing to watch. Every type of rib is cut and explained.

    Anyone know what the ribs were wrapped in?
    some kind of paper?

      pink butcher paper,

    That's a good video, explains the different cuts for those uninitiated. One thing you do have to notice is the amount of fat seams he left in the thick cuts of both chuck and dino ribs. During cooking those seams render and begin to delaminate the meat layers above and below causing them to separate. It's actually better to trim the top layer off rather than cook it as is. It look so good when the meat is raw but after cooking its a different story. In other words, fat seams suck.

    Here's an example of what I'm talking about. I was sent these ribs cut from ribs 6-8 from Porter Road to try (due to a previous failed attempt they sent me). Here's what the meat looked like when raw, notice the fat seams;

    Although its hard to see when they cryovac them, always try to avoid large seams of fat. Just a word to the uninitiated. Again the video and the Bearded Butchers have an awesome channel, I'm a big fan !!

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

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 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 because temperature control is so much easier.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
