Rainy Day Ribs

Discussion in 'Pork' started by alelover, Mar 7, 2011.

  1. Thought I'd do some Q for mom-in-laws visit. It her birthday today. So yesterday I did some ribs and chicken and a chunk of fatty point brisket I had left after cutting it up for pastrami next weekend. Ribs were BOGO at the Teeter so I got 2. Ones for later.


    Thawed them out and rubbed em down. First I removed the skin from underneath. What do they call that? Fromundaskin?



    Here's the rub. Pretty mild. We're not big on spicy hot here.


    Ran out of brown sugar so I made me some. Half cup cane sugar and half teaspoon molasses mixed real good.


    Rubbed the ribs and put them away for the night.



    Sunday morning we spark up the pit and commence to rubbin my chicken. Simple rub. S & P, Cavender's, onion and garlic powder.



    We got temperature and thin blue smoke.


    After an hour we're looking pretty good.



    We have ribs. 5.5 hours at 225 and no foil wrap.


    And Yardbird too. Nope not Page, Clapton or Beck.


    Looks like supper's ready.


    Brisket is still smoking in case you're wondering. We'll have it another day.


    The aftermath. They were yummy. Fell off the bone with a little tug. Very tender. Not mushy.


    Thanks for watching.

    Now your food looks awesome and I'm sure that your MIL enjoyed it too. I have that same plate of bones when I do chicken or ribs around here too. Sometimes a little bit cleaner after my wife licks her plate.

    nice job...I'm sure it was appreciated. Like the stack mod, the truss job on the bird and sweet work on that rib membrane...

  16. Alelover, that looks like a great meal, if the MIL did not like it she needs to see a psychiatrist!  The ribs and chicken look great!, we are not a big spicy bunch either but like a good rub that enhances the meat flavor.  Keep up the good work!

    Your SMF Friend,
