Need a cook idea for today

robnybbqrobnybbq Posts: 1,736
Not in the mood for pulled pork or beef or a pork loin.  Did a brisket last weekend and stuffed chicken as well.  Did sausage/pepeprs last week as well. (Yes the Egg is getting a workout).  Planning on some spatch later in the week.

Need some ideas on what to cook.

I suck at ribs so I do not know but if I did go that route I want a different rub (no sugar) mixture and I will go 1-1.5 hours with smoke then wrapped in foil for 1-1.5 hours until done.  But this would be my last choice.

But
What else is out there - looking for a 3-5 hour cook max since I have to go get the meat this morning and wont get started on cooking until at least noon.

And it has to be LOW carb.

    Beef tenderloin is a possibility.


    Just looking at Memphis Dry Rub Ribs instead of the mess usually attempt.  Any tips for these since there is no sauce.

    Get a pound of sliced bacon and clean out the fridge or the freezer. Bacon wrap whatever and see what you can come up with, because, everything is better with bacon. Peppers, chicken, pork (pork?), burgers, big mushrooms, etc.

    I like your thinking.  We did ABT's, pigshots, bacon wrapped chicken thighs over the past 2 weeks as well.

    Do you have a WOK?  Stir fry for quick and easy. and Lo-Carb at the same time. Clean out the fridge, toss in a little protein if ya want and done. Plus it's fun woking on the egg.

    One day maybe. Just too nervous about it.

    Going to get ribs for a Memphis style rub and foil 1/2 way through and highe heat (300) I guess. Will have sauce on the side for the people who eat carbs.

    My father-in-law does some of the best ribs I have ever had. Usually 4 racks, 2 dry and 2 wet (for those who just HAVE to have the sauce).

    Baby backs with the membrane pulled.
    Rub on the convex side only.
    On the egg at 220, direct for ~1.5 hours.

    He usually will sauce them with 30 minutes remaining. Sounds simple, right? I'm here to tell you that these turn out dang good. 
    A great alternative to a 4-5 hour cook.

    I only do Memphis style ribs. In fact, I have never sauced anything on the egg.

    dweebs0r would be a great person to ask about doing Memphis style ribs. I am still just getting my own method down. He is always bringing in fantastic ribs to work.

    What about country style ribs (About 3 ribs per cut).  How should I cook them?

    Couple of thoughts.

    I do my ribs the standard 3-2-1 method for St Louis style and 2-2-1 for baby backs.  I pull the membrane on mine but dont find that it makes much of a difference in the finished product.
    The first part is where the ribs really soak up the smoke flavors, the second part is where is renders the fat out, the third is where I caramelize the sauces if I add in any.

    Get a pork loin, stuff it with your choice, tie it and slow cook it. I like portobello shrooms, spinach and provolone.

    Hmm. Looks like 300 indirect for 2 hours then check for doneness? 195 inside? No foiling?

    How about a couple of big thick pork chops, smothered in Butt rub smoked with a little cherry wood and finished off with a brush clarified butter infused with just a hint of bacon fat.

    Hitch that is just wrong. Will do this week as we got some nice bone still on pork chops. Got allot of cooking on the egg this week. Working an earlier shift so I will be home by 4 instead of the usual 7

    So far the southern country ribs have been on for 4 hours and no where near done. Should have done something else. Guests are starving and have to leave soon. Was planning on a 6:00 dinner.
