Doing some simple pork spares seasoned with our leader drbbq's own BoneSmokers rub. These will go direct on the grill of the Small Egg over hickory chunks, flipping/rearranging every 45 minutes. Side dishes include beer and cigars.[p]Happy Saturday,

    WessB,[p]These are true "bachelor ribs." This arrangement will surely never appear in Gourmet magazine nor be posted on, but, as you say, I'm sure I'll enjoy![p]Hey, you should go to the Liberty BBQ competition next weekend. Dr. Woo, C Biddy, and myself will be judging, Nature Boy will be cooking with the notorious drbbq, Cap'n will be celebrating a birthday, Smokin' Todd may make an appearance, I think it will be on FoodTV, etc....[p]

    djm5x9, Dude, I could eat every jar of those!!! Loved the d*amn things ever since I was a kid growing up in SC! Never did learn how to pickle 'em myself. Care to share the knowledge? Mac

    Mac in NC:[p]You will appreciate this: I placed a jar clearly visible in the company refrigerator week before last. Evidently tension had built beyond containment because there was a loud ruckus early this past week as six people were opening a difficult canning top and devouring pickled okra![p]As for the recipe, use the standard vinegar/water mix for pickling and take your liberties by adding the spices you like. Dill, whole cayenne pepper, and garlic are the favorites around here. It is best to make larger unit quantities if you really like pickled okra. When canning, I use the water bath method taking great care not to over cook – there is nothing worse than pickled okra that has no crunch! Depending on the jar size, the canning bath could be half the time of what is called for in the “Ball Canning Guide”.[p]The okra, dill, and pepper come from the garden making my product extremely fresh, from field to jar in a couple of hours. All of my asparagus production this year went to the table, but next year I will have some pickled asparagus. Nothing like offering your guests the choice of pickled okra or pickled asparagus for their Bloody Mary’s

    djm5x9, That's funny!! Thanks for the pickling advice. Now, I just need to find the okra at the local farmer's market. Mac
