    2 ribs........
    had a day of sunshine in a week of rain so i figured i better do 2 racks 2 ways.........one bbq and the other achiote.
    the one in the back is my own rub and the front one has achiote paste....

    a bed of ono lump and oak with pecan chunks......

    after 2 1/2 hrs and ready to foil for 30 min.

    after a quick char on the SFB and served with rice and beans......

    Those are some tasty looking ribs!

    I always enjoy checking out your posts. You do some good Q...for a Stillers fan! Or is it just the "dawg" that's the fan?

    Sorry, couldn't resist! [​IMG]

    i personaly liked the achiote.....just went well with what was served. i did the bqq cuz i just made a new batch of sauce. i will say that the achiote will stand up to a stronger smoke while a simple rub will alow the smoke to penetrate the meat. that being said, i would have prefered the rubbed one to be done with apple or given just a little less smoke.

    LOL! my girlfriend is nutz about cows so i bought her a set..........wasn't cheep!

    rich, the rubbed rack got a little water spritz and bbq sauce while firming them up in the SFB. the achiote just gets the paste that i make.

    mark, here it is on a bird

    basicly in a blender puree:
    1 block of paste
    1 onion (smoked prefred but not necesary)
    3-4 cloves garlic " " " "
    1/4 c. olive oil
    2-3 limes juiced
    1 bunch cilantro
    salt and pepper to taste
    use enough water to facilitate blending until a thick but pourable mixture is formed and marinate for 1 hour...... use on chix, pork, or shrimp.

    I must say, it is a fine looking English bull terrier. No disrespect meant by the "dawg" comment....just a reference to my teams unofficial title for us fans. As far as the "best football team ever"....well I have to admit that's a hard one to argue. With all the big rings they have earned. You know here in NE Ohio we love the rivalry, and if honest, will admit to being a tad bit jealous over those rings!

    Fun stuff!

    And I really do admire your Q!
