Pulled Pork, Beef Ribs, Potatoes, and more!

Today was busy day of grilling. I was in the kitchen for a solid 12 hours today, and I'm not completely cleaned up yet. It was worth it though. 

Used all four eggs today. Large oval Primo(pork butts), Large Round Primo (Beef Ribs, potatoes and cobbler), Mini Max (green beans) and Mini(seared the sv beef ribs). The temp  was -13 when I lit the first grill this morning at 4:30 and up to 6 about the time we ate. Its -10 now..... Neighbors probably think I'm nuts!!

The potatoes, green beans and apple cobbler were all taken from Malcolm Reed's YouTube channel, How to BBQ Right. I recommend all three. I have made several of recipes now and all have been very good. Pretty simple ingredients too, that's what I like the most about them.

Tomorrow is round 2 of my bacon making journey, I have 3 lbs of cured pork belly to smoke. Trying a different recipe from last time, the Micheal Ruhlman recipe.

Some pics:

Pulled pork for leftovers to be used during the week, to freeze, and to give to a couple friends.






Made some beef ribs as well. I picked up 4-5 bones worth, and split it and put one part in the sous vide on Thursday, and did the other one on the egg with peach and cherry wood. 

Going on




Coming off and going into the cooler.




I missed pics of the sous vide beef ribs. They were more tender, but the smoked ones had better flavor and bark.

Also on the eggs are parmesan potatoes:




Smoked Green Beans

  

And Apple Cobbler for desert. 



Thanks for looking!!

    The guests left happy!!

    Those all day marathons are a lot of fun but very tiring. Still have some cleaning to do this morning and wasn't very excited to go out and light the grill for bacon already....

    My local Faraway gets them in from time to time. They are really good about ordering stuff in if you want it. They have oxtails in right now as well, and the manager was telling me how good they were. I told him I'd have to take his word for it. I like trying new stuff, but no thanks.

    I typically don't cook outdoors a whole lot when it is really cold. Even in the middle of summer I don't turn out meals that ambitious or delicious looking. Great cook!

    Thanks! 

    If I only cooked in good weather, I would only cook a few times a year!!

    I was ambitious this time because I the guest I had doesn't mind being a guinea pig and trying new stuff. He also gives good feedback, and will speak up if something is off, or its no good; I value that, it has made me a better cook.

    I usually only cook for myself, and keep it fairly simple.

    Great cook.  I find that on cold days, the more grills you light, the better.  Then you can stand in the middle of them in a "zone of warmth" and tolerate the cold.

    Thanks for all the compliments!!

    Life is going to seriously slow down the cooks for the next few months, so I took advantage of the break in the action and made some food.

    Smoked some bacon this morning. Turned out pretty good, think I will soak it longer next time, its a little salty.
