Marinades are nice, but simplicity is sweet.

Man, I love marinades, and spending lots of time on recipes. But the option of simplicity is wonderful at times like this! Still workin after 2 am, and at 8 pm I decided to do some babybacks for a friday lunch. Tim will be in the area, and will probably swing by and join me. They just finished thawing and I slathered them real quick-like with good ol' frenches mustard. Sprinkled on a mixture of rubs, and wrapped in saran wrap for am 8 am start. [p]Took a total of 15 minutes to prep, and guaranteed good after a few hours on my green buddy.[p]Simple. Good. Ribs. Yum.
Workin too hard.

    Nature Boy,[p]My egging experience so far has kind of been marked by a few different phases of cooking. I went through the learning phase early on, cooking a lot of different things at different temperatures etc with different rubs and marinades. Then I went through the minimalist phase where I liked to cook just the meat, using different woods for flavor. Then I went through the seafood phase (just recently) and learned about different fish, times, flavors, techniques etc. I think out of all of this, I have learned what you state in your post:[p]"But the option of simplicity is wonderful at times..."[p]Sometimes simple is best. Have a great 4th and enjoy the ribs. I have the salmon in the fridge with the salt/sugar/dill on it, ready to smoke this evening. Then, a whole salmon for tomorrows cook and a HUGE slab/steak of Wahoo, looks to be about a three pound steak, should be good. Enjoy...[p]Troy
  • Nature Boy,[p]Well put. I bought some outrageous London broil from my butcher and used the KISS principle to cook it. [p]-Take good piece of meat(no marinades,pastes,etc...)
    -Make good fire (750º)
    -Don't screw it up[p]Simple and great! Like my butcher says, "you can beat my prices, but you can't beat my meat".[p]Drink a cold one and just chill.
