Ribs On The Egg

Got my Egg in February from my wife for my birthday. She had bought me an electric stainless steel smoker years ago from Costco but I took it back as I was not too interested in smoking anything. What changed all of that was I hired a guy to our business who is a "competition pitmaster" and competes regularly at KCBC sanctioned events. He would compete over the weekend and then bring in the spoils for all of us to sample on Monday. Fantastic ribs, brisket, pulled pork and chicken to say the least. Prior to getting the Egg, we would talk and he freely shared many of his techniques. I have jumped far ahead of my 5 month ownership as far as anything and everything as far as smoking. Competition style BBQ techniques are not only fun but everyone who has sampled and eaten my various smokes tell us this is the best BBQ they have ever eaten. He also advised my wife to buy me the Egg! The rest is history and needless to say, he got a nice raise (LOL!) Here are some images of some of my triumphs!

Cut and trimmed out some St Louis style ribs

Gettin ready to go on...

...on they go!

On at 250 for 2 hours, then pulled and foiled with apple juice/blue agave for about 45 minutes, then back on for 30-40 minutes to bark

...kept two racks dry (Memphis style) and glazed up 2 racks with some miracle mixture BBQ sauce

The finished meal: Ribs, coleslaw, Southern spoonstyle cornbread and fresh shucked white corn...Mmmm!

    Here is a couple of butts gettin happy with some Chesapeake Bay lump crab meat and cheddar/bacon stuffed jalapenos

    Brisket injected with au jus and rubbed with 3 Eye's BBQ
    rub with some coffe added for 12 hours, homemade smoke German potato salad and smoked japs

    Daughter had a party for all her friends that recently took a trip to Italy. Being the son of two parents that were born and raised in Italy, I decided to make a lamb ragu sauce (southern Italian style sauce) and then stuffed shells...on the Egg! It was awesome and the kids went crazy over it!

    Watched the NCAA D1 Lacrosse Championships and fired up the Egg for pizza and Maryland Crabcakes
