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!

Rainy day rib cook

Woke up to thunder and lightening early yesterday morning. Not a usual occurance for us. Monsoonal storm moving through. Had planned on cooking ribs, wasn't going to let a little rain stop me. Costco spares trimmed up and rubbed with Dizzy Dust, mixed with a little Red Eye.


Decided we needed a mini-Fattie for breakfast. Mixed breakfast sausage with roasted red pepper, garlic and parmesan. Then on to the egg for about an hour with apple wood and a little hickory.

It kind of crumbled as I was slicing it. So decided it was perfect for a mini-bagel, along with cream cheese and a nice heirloom tomato. Yummy!

The rain kept up off and on all day. Pulled out a piece of pipe I picked up a few years back to use as a raincap. I think this is it's first use! Was able to keep the egg at 275 most of the day.

After about 5 hours, with one in foil, back on the grill with sauce. Sorry no plated pics, but the Fiance declared these my best ribs to date!

    Very clever rain cap, Ribs look good.
  • Nice looking Ribs! Great idea for a rain cap (not that we would ever need one in Texas :( )

    Cheap & easy and allows for airflow. Doesn't rain much here, but nothing like your conditions.
  • Fluff, are those spare ribs? They don't look good........they look great!!

    Yes, spares, trimmed up to St. Louis, or sort of. The ribs from Costco were extremely meaty. Worth the little extra money. Foodsavered and froze the other slab.
  • Great lookin ribs.
