    Ribs for Memorial Day

    Having some family (the grown kids) and friends over, total about 10 people. Cooking 3 racks of ribs plus all the normal sides (corn, pasta salad, coleslaw, beans). Got two nice racks of back ribs and one of SLC cut spares at the grocery store yesterday. Prepped ‘em yesterday afternoon .... peeled membrane and dry brine and into the garage fridge they went

    Got the WSM set up about 9:30 this morning with KBB and some red oak. Once it was up to about 250, I prepped the spareribs with MMD and got them going at about 10:30. An hour later, about 11:30, got the back ribs out, prepped them with MMD, and onto the WSM they go. Those two racks are on the top grate, moved the spares to the bottom grate.

        Nice looking ribs, and that's a solid beer selection. Sometimes I just want a light, thirst-quenching beer on a hot day, and Coors Light checks that box better than most. And all varieties of Shiner are good.

          Love me some Shiner Bock, there’s a local Lager next to it that’s pretty decent, too. Sometimes I want a beer with a cigar and that’s where the Boddington’s comes in.

          I really want ecowper to adopt me.
          Every time I see his fridge it make me re-evaluate my life.
          Coors Light, They brewed/bottled it at MolsonCoors Toronto brewery, I used to ask where you getting the Rocky Mountain water from. If its iced cold does the trick.
          Shiner Beers, every day and twice on Sunday.
          Again something that hasn't made it north of the border yet much to my chagrin.

              My helper (who is EAGERLY waiting for her own cooker) sauced one of the racks of ribs and checked the others to see how done they are. Sauce is Mike Mills Apple City BBQ Sauce from “Peace, Love, and BBQ”

                Things start to move fast when you are trying to get things coordinated between the finished cook time and serving. Mine finished too early, and I had to hold them in the oven. Did anyone not cook ribs yesterday?

                  Had leftover ribs from the day before. I actually pressure washed my grills yesterday, and gave them a break after weeks of heavy use.

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

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!
