It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Last night's feast

Cooked some marinated country ribs(pork butt)for 5 hours as a dish called cochinitas pibil. It is heavy with cinnamon and cloves and cooked in banana leafs.


Served it with pickled onions, Spanish rice, tortillas, and calabacitas.


It was a nice meal and everyone loved it, but I really didn't care for the pork, cinnamon and cloves aren't a favorite of mine. -RP

    I've done cochinita pibil a couple times. Really, really like it. To me, it's a nice change from the normal pork butt.

    Your's looks tasty!

    Food looks great, as usual. Question: how was the bark or was there any to speak of? I have long wanted to try this, but the bark on a standard butt is one of the pay-offs for the long cook.

    That looks and sounds outstanding!
  • Randy, you could be mistaken for Beli with the meal and the ladies surrounding you!
    Hope you are not getting much smoke from the fires and all are safe :)
    Take care and best to Kim B)

    No bark because it is braised. -RP
  • Looking good Randy, got me thinking that it's about time to make puerco pibil again.
