    Yep, I told my family if you don't like it; you don't eat.
    I asked, how do you like your ribs?
    "They taste like $hit, but I like them that way."
    See were are all happy. Now pass the PBR.

    I make stuff the way I like it. That is usually in line with what everyone likes. If they don't, they don't know BBQ. Right?

    The solution to me is to take half the ribs and crutch them in foil for about an hour, an hour before the end of the cook. That way half is the way you like, and half is fall off the bone the way she likes. That said, I did a single rack of STL ribs a week or two ago that was fall off the bone tender even without the wrap. Overdone in my book, but she loved them.

    I cook to please God. Much like the priests of Ancient Israel did on the altar.

    Danjohnston949 would be proud!

    I usually cook at least 2 racks. One sweet and falling off the bone and one more savory and just bite thru. This typically satisfies everyone including myself…..but I’m always cooking to make them happy, if their happy so am I.

    Think about this, some have said that they cook em two ways, one for the most important one & one fer yerself! Others have bragged macho style, my way or no way. Bottom line, what are ya in this for?
    I found myself doing more cooking for myself cuz I had to. Ya gotta eat, then I would be surprised, but not really motivated to go out & cook up a storm. The joy in cookin is cookin for someone else. It’s not about you! The smiles on others faces, the “Yums” and other compliments directed at you as you have provide pleasure & joy to those that matter to you. And, even if you don’t know em, ya still care for them & bask in the satisfaction you’ve made someone happy.
    A coupe of weekends ago I was involved with what could have been a major family cook failure. At least 45 people, 16 burgers, 16 hot dogs & 20lbs or more of chunked chicken & sirloin for shish kabob. We had 1 1/2 hrs, a filthy gas grill, small grilling surface at that, and some one who had no idea of what to do to get things done as far as cookin goes. The meat soaked over night in salad dressing & my sister started
    to cut the veggies up fer the kaboobs with a pairing knife, headed for a handful of skewers. I put plan B into effect. When we got there I instructed “the cook” to clean his “grill”. I drained the salad dressing from the meat somewhat, S& P’d the chicken & beef & roasted it over two burners with a diffuser & one with out. I had chunked up red, green peppers & onions into 4 gallon bags, S & P & olive oil. 2 1/2 hrs later plus 16 hot dogs, “The Cook” did the burgers on a little charcoal we were done. First time I had cooked for someone else in 8 months. The “this was great” & “loved the veggies” & other expressions of gratitude & enjoyment was well worth the effort. The joy it brought my sister & my nieces was precious. I even got a “Ya know I don’t let anyone ever touch my grill” fro The Chef. It’s not about you, never is. Smoke & Fire On all you in AR. 🕶

    Troutman "I please myself all the time, but that's a different story" Mixed cocktails is my guess. If not try PBR. LOL

    I end up make multiple batches. Chili, Ribs, Tacos, fajitas. I like it spicy my wife and son like it sweet. My son (8 YO) won't eat meat that is hard...read nicely seared, so I have to wrap his proteins or just indirect to temp no sear.

    I have a friend who is an electrical engineer. Graduated top of his class at Northeastern University. He analyzed his wife's household chores and wrote up a six page commentary on how she could complete them more efficiently. Needless to say he is much smarter with his second wife...lol.

    Naw. It’s, “You don’t like ‘em? Cook ‘em yerself.”

    My wife isn't really big on pork, and ribs even less, so when I make ribs she get's 'em how I want 'em, and you'd best shut your gob about it, woman; also, I made you chicken. Easy enough to make me what I like and her something she likes.

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.

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.
