    Summer Days and Ribs

    Cooked up a couple racks of back ribs while Stacy made some pasta salad. Lazy summer afternoon. Had a cigar and a couple glasses of wine while the ribs were cooking. Everybody dug in and enjoyed.

    Also, look how rock solid a WSM 22 is .... once I had it set, I didn’t mess with the vents at all :-)

      It was nice .... sitting out back in the summer sun, a couple glasses of a nice red, a nice cigar, smelling the ribs cooking, dogs were lazy in the sun. Gotta find some good where we can considering all the crazy of the world right now.

      My wife and I did much the same today, relax and de-stress in the pool. Best medicine in the world is to watch the world go by.
      ....with a nice red....not so much into cigars anymore....

        Dang, here I was having a relaxing day of homebrewing and kegging some finished beers and you done made me crave ribs. Luckily, I have a slab in the freezer which is now thawing. But, I have to drive into town for the cigar.

        Here's mine. I just pulled them off the KBQ, they are resting now. Smoked a Drew Estate Maduro Java while cooking them, now smoking a cigar they had at the store - Undercrown, never heard of them but it is a good medium bodied maduro. Just googled it, it is made by Drew Estate who calls it "A high-end cigar for the working man."

          This turned out to be one of my best slabs of ribs yet. Seasoned with Salt Lick rub. When it started looking a little dry I started basting with a blend of butter, splash of lime juice, Salt Lick rub, and a splash of water. Turned out perfect with a great smoke ring. Only complaint is they are a tad bit salty, I used salted butter. Didn't have any unsalted on hand.

        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

        Placeholder

        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

        Placeholder

        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.

        Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        Placeholder

        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. 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!

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

        Placeholder

        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 Undisputed Champion!

        Placeholder

        The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        Placeholder

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

        Placeholder

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        Placeholder

        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.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

        Placeholder

        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

        Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

        Placeholder

        A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

        Track Up To Six Temperatures At Once

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Placeholder

        Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

        Placeholder

But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
