    Third Braten cook: ribs, PB burnt ends, asparagus

    Inspired by IFindZeroBadCooks (and what local butcher had on hand), decided to try ribs next. Found some very small baby backs (SYD Love Meat Tender) which cooked up pretty quickly. Also had some pork belly which seemed a good excuse to try burnt ends (Salt Lick Garlic Rub). And some asparagus (Spice House lemon pepper), for balance..

    This time was a little more patient getting cooker hot and stable before putting food on, which I think helped.. But struggled midway through when I think I waited too long before putting next log on, temp dropped from 275ish to below 225 for a while, got it back up but overshot into 300+, eventually came back though.

    Since Engelbrecht say they have a "hot spot" near the firebox, tried using that and the end of the cook to do some asparagus, which I thought was great and got rave reviews from wife (who often doesn't appreciate when I over-sear asparagus over direct heat).

    Also took opportunity to sizzle the burnt ends after they came off by putting the pan on top of the firebox. Will definitely be repeating that trick.

    As for the ribs...was very happy with bark and smoke flavor. They ended up a little tough but still enjoyable, and I'm chalking that up to how little meat was on them. Look forward to trying again with more meaty ribs.

        Damn man, for only the third cook on the Braten, you are really getting it dialed in. That looks fantastic. Another few cooks and you will be killing it all the way around.

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


                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.

                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.

                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.
