    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.

              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.

              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.

              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.
