And it isn't even Friday. [p]Last evening Tim's rib cook sounded great so off to the store I went - came home with a nice rack of baby backs. Worked at home this afternoon and started the ribs at about noon - dinner tonight will be ribs and a glass of Merlot - life is GOOD![p]What's everyone else cooking?

    Ribs & wine? Interesting! Hope that flavors are complimentary!

    Gfw,[p]I have a 2" thick hunk of tuna, marinating in a blend of mustard, soy, olive oil & crushed garlic. I'm going to sear it on the small Egg until it's crusty outside, sushi inside.[p]Happy ribs -[p]Cathy

    Cat, that actually sounds kind of good - but, I think I'd have to cook it longer than "sushi" - how long did you marinate? If I was going to have it done inside, how long would you cook per side and at what temp? My wife won't be home for dinner tomorrow (she doesn't like fish) and it sounds like something I could try for a Friday dinner - can't have ribs 2 nights in a row![p]

    Bama Fire, trust me, they've worked well together in the past and in about 15 minutes I'm hoping they will work well together again. Have a great evening!

    Gfw,[p]I generally let it marinate in the fridge for a couple of hours.[p]Tuna dries out so easily that I always cook it over very high heat & leave it very rare. But Thrill of the Grill suggests 1" steaks, grilled 4-5 minutes a side over a "medium-hot" fire - on the Egg, I guess I'd try 4 minutes a side at 450-500. Tuna will cook faster than steak. Otheres here who likes tuna more done will likely have a more accurate recommendation.[p]Have you ever tried an Australian Shiraz with ribs? Nice combination.[p]Cathy

    Nothing like seared rare tuna!! Maybe some wasabi and ginger/soy sesame for dipping.
    Some fresh greens. The texture of hardly cooked fresh fish is wonderful.
    Doesn't get much better. Those who are squeamish about it, should just try it sometime.
    Have fun

    Gfw,[p]Tonight we had chilean sea bass marinated in lemon juice, chardonnay, salt, pepper, olive oil and fresh rosemary from the garden. I put it on an alder plank with alder chips in the fire, indirect at 350 for a half hour or so. [p]It came out flaky with a crunchy crust and with a light smokey taste. [p]After dinner I got the temps down to 200 or so and I just put on a butt for a pulled pork party tomorrow. [p]As you would say, life is good.

    You too![p]I think I'll cook some ribs this weekend. I still haven't produced a rack that I'm overjoyed with. I'll keep trying 'til I get it down pat, though.[p]B~F
