Baby back ribs and smoked brats, my cutting board has never looked so good.

It's been a while since I've done an indirect low and slow. I decided to do baby backs and smoked brats. The baby backs were a logistical nightmare since I bought three packs in total, returning two of them on two separate trips back to the store since they smelled awful when I opened them. It was a rotten almost methane smell. Anyways I took those racks back and got my money back. I cut my losses after the second trip and went with the two rack that smelled fine.

I smoke the ribs for 3 hours at 225 and then bumped it up to 250 for the last 2 hours. The brats went on when the egg hit 250. I generally like to grill my brats but I've recently gotten into smoked sausages, they came out great.

I also made sour cream and lime coleslaw, an baked beans with corn.

Great way to wrap up the weekend. Its amazing how delicious 8 pounds of pork can look spread out on a cutting board.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I have a pack of brats and Italian sausage for tonight. What was your technique? 250 for 2 hours?

    I usually let the brat for two hours at 250. They always come out perfectly.

    Looks tasty! Do you mind posting the coleslaw recipe?

    Here you go:

    Ingredients

    1 bag of shredded cabbage (a coleslaw mix is preferable)
    4 scallions
    1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, torn
    1/2 cup sour cream or greek yogurt
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    2 limes
    Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    Directions

    Chop up the cilantro and scallions. Toss the cabbage, scallions and cilantro in a large salad bowl.

    Make the dressing by combining the sour cream, mayonnaise, sugar and the zest of the limes in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper and finish with the lime juice from both limes. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and toss to combine.

    If you can do this the night before you are going to serve the coleslaw you should definitely do so. It really let the coleslaw set up nice and reach maximum flavor.

    Enjoy.

    Thanks... that's very similar to the recipe that I use. Mine has chili powder for more of a "southwestern" flavor. I'm going to give this one a try the next time I do coleslaw.

    A cutting board piled with meat is one of my favorite sites!  It all looks great.  The cole slaw recipe sounds amazing- I will have to give that a try.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.
