    Charlie Vergos' Rendezvous Question

    I am planning on doing ribs using the Vergos Rendezvous plan. I will be cooking for 8 people at my workplace. I have not used the Vergos method at home. Seems simple. Will be doing a full rack for each person.

    I'm looking for suggestions and advice on the method. Meathead's recipe seems straightforward. Anybody have any mods?


    I don't know what the Vergos method is. I've eaten there a few times but don't know their rib cooking method. Can you give some details of what you know about it?


      it’s a very hot and fast method of cooking ribs. Charlie Vergos created it at Rendezvous, which is an Uber famous rib joint in Memphis.

        Get the heat going. I ran 400+ in my kettle indirectly. Definitely a different kick to things.


          I'd just follow that recipe to the letter. Should turn out just fine. Alternately, if you have a Pit Barrel Cooker, it will give you a similar flavor profile.


            Let us know how it turns out.
            I am kind of a low and slow, back-patio BBQ'r, and am interested in the different techniques.

                I wouldn't necessarily call it a rub since it's just a bunch of dried herbs and spices shaken on.

                That being said, I think their famous for being famous. Just my $0.02 worth.

              Unfortunately, I'm going to be doing these in an oven as our grill at work isn't big enough for 8 full racks. Will post pics.
