    Gentleman Jack for me.
  • Re: And a mini for me...

    Her pic seat-belted into the passenger seat is precious!   ;;)
    I'm pretty sure that they are supposed to be in a rear-facing carseat at that age. [-X

    Congrats on the new mini!

    Here's where I keep my Large Big Green Egg and my gas grill (aka "the thousand dollar hot dog cooker").

  • Baby Back Ribs Pics and Technique

    We were in the mood for some baby back ribs today. Thought I'd share some pics and my technique.

    First, I rubbed the ribs down with a 50/50 mix of Dizzy Pig Dizzy Dust and Bad Byron's Butt Rub. I used cheap HEB brand yellow mustard as a binder.


    Got my fire stable at 225 grid, added some hickory and cherry, and threw the ribs on. I used an adjustable rig set up as follows:
    • Level 1.5: Oval stone, covered in foil
    • Level 3: Ribs on oval grid
    • Level 4.5: Empty
    • Rig Extender: Moink Balls on sliding D grid


    Pulled the Moink balls after about 90 minutes.


    Ran the ribs for a total of 5 hours at 225. Then I coated them with an 60/40 combination of Blues Hog and Sweet Baby Ray's.


    I kicked the temperature up to about 275, and left the glazed ribs on for about 20 minutes or so. Pulled them, and let them rest for about 10 minutes.


    End result was fantastic. Tender and tasty.


    Just a few minutes after they hit the table, my family had devoured both racks down to the bones.

    Have I mentioned that I love my Big Green Egg?
  • What's in the fridge? Salmon, asparagus, and bacon.

    We just had a new baby a few days ago and haven't had a chance to get to the grocery store. The ladies at church have been good about bringing meals, but there is only so much lasagna you can eat in a week ... plus, I get grouchy if I go too long without egging.

    I looked in the fridge, and saw that we had a few salmon steaks, plus some asparagus and bacon. 

    The more mathematically inclined amongst you may notice that there is one more salmon steak in the "before" photo than in the "after" photo. Chalk that up to baby-related sleep deprivation.
