We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Smoke advice for the following diff rib recipes

For July 4 (technically, id3), I plan to make a trio of ribs on my large bge: Hot pepper glazed beef short ribs (http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/ribs-with-hot-pepper-jelly-glaze) Vietnamese-ish spares (http://www.porkbeinspired.com/RecipeDetail/1078/Asian-Flavored_Baby_Back_Ribs.aspx) Chipotle cherry baby backs (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Dinosaur-Bones-with-Chipotle-Cherry-Barbecue-Sauce-359751) Given the mix of flavors, what kind of smoke would you recommend? The chipotle cherry ribs should have something robust, but the others should have something light, or nothing at all. Right now at home, I have alder, cherry, sugar maple, hickory, and mesquite, though I can run out and get something else if any of you have a strong opinion one way or another. Right now, I'm thinking sugar maple with a smidge of cherry. Part of me was wondering if alder would make sense here.
