Okay. So I have people coming over tomorrow for a BBQ that I haven't really planned out properly.
The invite is for 2:00pmish.
I planned on doing pulled pork over night and then having two or three racks of ribs done by the time people are hungry.
On top of that, I have a couple of vegetarians (my wife, included) coming. so I was thinking veggie burgers, portabellas, eggplants, etc. That's not too bad.
But now I look at the timing. For the number of people coming, I'll need maybe a 7lb butt. That might take a max of 17 hours. Then three hours for the ribs, if I rush them. I need to get the meat on NOW and I'm still at work! GAH!
I'm willing to have not-quite-competition ribs. That's the wrench in my plan, I think. So what's an eggceptable shortcut for them?
