Ribs and Turkey Breast Dizzy Pig Style

edited February 2013 in EggHead Forum
Like many of you I like to take full advantage of the weekend and plan a fun meal for friends and family. Even after big cooks for Mardi Gras and Valentines day this past week we decided it had been long enough and it was time for some ribs! 

Like most eggheads I went to the pantry to decide what rub to throw on the ribs:
image

We decided to do some Car Wash Mike's Baby Back Rib Class and use Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust. This method is close to our normal one but we decided to go the whole way and follow his guidelines. Carwash Mike was a Egghead that was known for his ribs, unfortunately he isn't with us anymore. I never got the privilege to meet him, but his rib method lives on in his name! 

image

After a run to sams on friday we were ready to go. 
image

The membrane was pulled off of the bone side and the Dizzy Dust was rubbed in.
image

On the meat side we put on mustard and then used the Dizzy Dust per CarWash Mike 
image 
Once the egg was stabilized at 225° using the DigiQ we threw in some apple and cherry wood chips, about a large handful of each and mixed it into the lump. 
image

Plate setter legs up with a drip rack underneath then the grid and the ribs start out on the rib rack.
image

After the 1st hour the ribs get a spritz of Apple Juice and continue every hour until done. 
Time to sit down on the porch and just enjoy the smell of the egg doing its magic. We just got the fountain to the left of the pergola last week and think it fits in nicely with the BBQ / Patio area. 
image

Here is a peek while spritzing at the 2 hour mark. 
image

While the ribs were smoking away we decided to make Steven Raichlen's Best Barbecue Baked Beans on the Planet  
First the bacon 
image

Then the peppers and onions
image
Mix in the rest of ingredients and let it get happy. 


image

Time to hydrate! Trying out a local beer from Mustang Brewing 
image

It was almost the 3 hour mark and we wanted to toss in a turkey breast for lunches next week. We went with Tony Chachere's injectables butter and Dizzy Pig Shakin' the Tree rub. 
image

Now it was time to put on the top tier in the swing rack and spritz the ribs in apple juice again. 
3 hours bumped temp up to 300°
image

It still fits with the rib rack! woohoo! 
image

At 3 1/2 hours into the cook we took the ribs out of the rack and laid them down on the grid bone side up. 
image

Then at the 4 hour mark we flipped the ribs over and glazed them with Head Country barbecue sauce. 
It got dark, so I had to use the flash for this picture but they were looking perfect! 
image

image

They turned out great, had a nice smoke ring, and were still moist! Halfway through my meal I heard the DigiQ beeping and pulled the turkey off at 162° It was just under two hours on the top of the swing rack. 
image

Plated with some red skin potato salad and macaroni salad. 
image

These were the best ones yet and we will be making these again! I think CarWash Mike was looking down on us with a smile today!

    Fantastic. I did these yesterday as well, minus the mustard(thought I had yellow at home so I didn't get any, oops) This is a great recipe for sticky ribs.

    Man, your talkin my language. Those turkey breasts are good arent they? Did two of them yesterday, Im sure you saw my post. Ribs look great. Baby backs are going to be the inaugural cook when I get the egg in my table. Everything looks great man!

    How's that Fajitaish stuff? I have been wanting to try it.

    @Plano_JJ Thanks! Turkey breasts are so easy and make for such good sandwiches for the week. I need to get a slicer but the electric knife works for now. That will be a good cook to kick off your new area! 

    I put it on a Tri-Tip and it was awesome! I have yet to try it on anything else, but will be doing so soon..

    Thanks @Griffin I've been waiting for a nice weekend to make some ribs. Even though it snowed around midnight on friday, it was all melted before we fired up the egg around two.

    I see you likes the Ozark Oak too, best stuff I ever tried.

    @Plano_JJ other than the bag of BGE I got with my small egg its all I ever use. I love it and after hearing everybody else it seems to be some top tier stuff. My BGE dealer always has it so I don't even stock up on it. But I've been cooking outside so much I actually bought two bags last week.  :)>-

    Ribs are my weakness and will always be. I so enjoy reading/seeing them made. Not to mention eating them. :)

    Have a comment though.

    Have tried cryopacs from Sams/Costco and fresh from grocery like publix. There is a HUGE difference when I buy from Publix. HUGE!

    @Aviator I wish we had a publix, we just got the 2nd whole foods in the state two years ago. Oklahoma law says you can't sell wine / good beer unless its at a liquor store so we don't have very many of the good grocery stores here. These tasty ribs will have to do for the meantime, so far so good!

    Who did your custom handle on the egg? Any better pictures of it? And how we're the beans? Look really good. I have a recipe for cowboy beans from Rick Bayless that are awesome. http://thefridayfriends.blogspot.com/2012/04/mexican-cowboy-beans-with-rick-bayless.html Envious of the swing grate...can't decide between that or a true cast iron replacement....what made you pick that one?

    His site is called Danny's Carvings  He does great work and is very easy to help get the handle you want. Lots of guys have college logos and really like them. This was a drawing my sister made of a Koi, I like it tying back in with the ancient asian kamado cooker from years ago and cooking with fire. 

    image

    The beans are awesome we make them all the time and usually have somebody ask for the recipe after the party. I will have to give your recipe a try. I am a big fan of Rick bayless, he came and did a celebrity cooking demo a couple weeks ago and put on a good show. I've been to two of his restaurants and make his recipes all the time.

    The easy access to the two tiers was the selling point, I like to be able to flip wings, burgers, whatever and the other options just can't move that easily. Coming from cooking on a gasser the large egg is quite a bit smaller for making sides and I love having the second level. It being made of carbon steel was just a big bonus for me. It works great to sear steaks and then move it up top to finish or make burgers and sweet potato fries at the same time. 
    image

    Plus it allowed me to throw a turkey breast in with my ribs and use the same amount of lump in this cook! I am a big fan of its simplicity and function.
