Labor Day Cooks

dmchicago Posts: 4,516

Labor Day
, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

I'm going with Beef Ribs. Not sure what day. Enjoy the fruits of your labor, ladies and gents!

  • Brisket and maybe a couple of spacthcock chickens on Monday. Fresh peach cobbler for dessert.

    Hope everyone enjoys a safe Labor Day weekend!
    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.

    My girls are coming in Saturday and they requested rib.....so I'm cooking ribs.

    Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

    I am aiming to make the smoked Mac and cheese with pulled pork that @bigguy136 and @U_tarded got me thinking and thinking about.  My daughter in law would prefer the Mac and cheese with no meat so I may have to make two batches.  I am also going to make chicken wings with the rub @Jupiter Jim gave me- also bunches of veggies (I haven’t figured that part out yet)

    Pork ribs here. Besides all the retailers will say that Labor Day marks the last of Summer and you must put away your grills until the start of grilling season on Memorial Day 2020! NOT

    I'm going to combat my ongoing surge of laziness and cook the SRF ribs I purchased earlier this month.

    Also, my dry aging efforts with the Japanese A5 Waygu brisket are going slowly, so I'm going to cook the brisket extension piece, which will be 40 days old on Sunday.  It started off at 5lbs 13.9oz and is on track to weigh in at around 5 pounds by Sunday.  It smells sweet and nutty, like fresh heavy cream infused with roasted hazelnuts.  Then the dry aged beefy funk creeps in.  Can't wait.

    "ongoing surge of laziness" so now your an excellent chef AND comedian  =)

    Eyes were a little too big- these are about 2-2.5” thick

    Indirect is taking awhile and family is hungry. 

    But why I love the XL- can basically do indirect by keeping steaks from being over the flame. 
    I call steaks that large "chunks-o-cow". Good eating ahead...ENJOY!

  • Injected a 6lb pork butt, topped with homemade pineapple chutney and sriracha Mayo. Had a few too many adult beverages between games, so here is a pic of the pork and garlic Mac n cheese

    If you look closely, you can see TSwifts jet on the runway in the distance.
  • Dry aged 28 day ribeyes, baked potatoes, and ears of Kansas sweet corn on the XL tonight! Even the weather cooperated after 8 days of storms and rain.
