Japanese Inspired Q on the Eggs

I trimmed down a couple of spares to St. Louis cuts and let them soak for a few hours in a teriyaki marinade that I whipped up.  Onto the XL Egg they went for some smoking over some hickory and white oak:

After a few hours of cooking and applying a teriyaki glaze every 35-45 minutes, they were tender and ready to pull off for a brief rest:

The Mini joined the action with a teriyaki steak:

Then a 2 QT dutch with oil went on to fry up some veggie tempura:

and dinner was served:

    Thanks!  The white things are just rice with black sesame seeds sprinkled on it.

    Very nice. What kind of camera do you guys have that take such amazing pics (R2, VI, Mickey, BOW, Necessary Indulgences). My pics suck compared to all of yours.

    Thanks! I take most of my pics with a 7 yr old Canon Rebel XT DSLR.  It's no longer made and this year my pic #s went from 9999 back to 0001 (it reminded me of the first car I drove that went from 99999 miles to 00000).  I'd love to get a new higher end model (Canon 60D or 7D) as I really enjoy photography but I think they'd cost me more than L Egg!

    Outstanding job. I've never tried teriyaki ribs before. They sound awesome. Did you make your own sauce?

    Recipes used in this cook.  I had a few recipes from different sources and took a little from each and came up with these:

    Teriyaki marinade (was enough for 2 spares and 3 steaks)

    2 cups dark soy sauce

    1/2 cup sugar

    1/2 cup brown sugar

    2 TBS mirin

    2 TBS sake

    3 cloves of garlic pressed

    1/2 tsp ginger very minced

     

    Teriyaki glaze (I had 1 cup extra)

    1 cup dark soy sauce

    1/2 cup sugar

    1/3 cup honey

    2 TBS mirin

    2 TBS sake

    1 TBS asian chile sauce

    1/2 tsp ginger very minced

    1 clove garlic pressed

     

    Tempura Batter can be found here.  I used Sapporo beer for the batter.

     

    @Jan_WassisMeats - Thanks for the compliment! I'm a far cry from a "chef" and just someone who likes to try new things every once in a while.
