Mini BGE Megapost! Lots of pix

Life has been getting in the way of me posting a lot of pix these days, and has also kept me from responding to a lot of your delicious looking meals!  I'll try and get better!  :)  Here are a few cooks off the Mini BGE that I've been meaning to share:

Some Johnsonville Beer Brats, raised and direct with some Cherry Wood for smoke



Topped them with some new-to-me mustard and Saurkraut.  Some Nathan's Onion Rings on the side.  Good stuff!



Next, some Country Style Ribs.  My wife and I ate LOTS of these when we first got married.  They are CHEAP and TASTY!  :D  We haven't done them in awhile, but for the last coupla weeks, we've eaten them a few times.  They were smoke roasted with Cherry Wood indirect until they hit around 190 internal temp.  Then sauced during the last 10 minutes of cooking.  Country Style Ribs are basically sliced up pork butt, so they stay plenty juicy on the inside, and they melt in your mouth.  :D  Deeeelicious! 





Served up with some of Mrs. Dyal's Squash Casserole.  :)



And tonight, we smoked up some MOINK Balls on the Mini BGE.  I was able to squeeze 24 MOINKS on there with no problem.  I used the Mini Woo with a foiled pizza stone for the setup, and smoked them indirect at 350 deg f until they were done.  Man these were GOOD!!  They were sauced with a local BBQ Sauce that my brother sends me from somewhere in GA.  It's called Palmetto Juice.  I swear I think it was made for MOINK Balls! 








I have more pix, but this will hafta do it for tonight.  Photobucket is being a little slow and I wanna go chillax in front of the TV.  :D  Peace!

    Nice cooks on the Mini! That's a few more MOINKs than I would have figured would fit on a Mini.

  • Dude, Dyal, that is some great looking stuff. MOINK balls are a favorite around these parts. sounds like I might want to hunt down some of that Palmetto Juice; how would you describe the flavor? 

    Thanks for the post, this is awesome.

    Thx, folks!

    @caliking , here is what my bride said:

    I left out the onion and butter and used a small sleeve of ritz crackers instead of the full 35 crackers the recipe calls for. Just enough to cover the top of the casserole with crackers"

    @Black_Badger , the flavor of the sauce is kinda hard to describe. It's not really tomato based or mustard based. It's almost like a sweet and sour, semi spicy barbecue sauce. It works very nicely as a glaze.
  • That mustard looks interesting.. How was it?

    @bccomstock , it is good stuff! It's great on pretzels too. It will have you sweating, but it is tasty.

    How hot is the mustard? If you can find it, try Silver Spring horseradish mustard. Oh my gawd! Unbelievable with kraut and brats.
  • Dyal_SCDyal_SC Posts: 4,575
    @Eggcelsior , it is not painfully hot or "burn ya twice" hot... But good enough to have you sweating. :D I will keep my eye out for that. Thx!
  • As usuall, looks amazing.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
