    Ribeyes as always. Pretty sure my Dad would be disappointed if I changed the menu.

    I will be traveling so it depends on what will reheat. Also what’s on sale tomorrow evening. Not enough hours on Friday to do a pork butt but ribs sound good and were loved the previous time. Peach ribs?

    Pizza. Margherita pizza and BBQ pizza. We’ll have oven roasted shishito peppers, roasted oysters, and maybe patatas bravas for appetizers. An as yet undetermined combination of beer, wine, and cocktails will be enjoyed.

    Ribs tomorrow for my son’s birthday, the last ones I did were his favorite.
    Sunday will be a bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with Maple Syrup, recently posted here by another.

    I’ll be traveling, so likely not cooking anything, but will get either arroz con pollo or chicken tikka from our local takeout spots, depending on the mood of the family.

    Man, that sounds like a GREAT menu!! My dad passed in 1988, but he would've loved it! So would I!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Freezer diving.  Have so much good frozen meat that I need to cook.  Might make stuffed burgers with wagyu/angus ground beef - or homemade sausage - or there's a pork tenderloin...

    And does anyone have a good suggestion for a "Pike's Peak Roast"?  Is that just "round steak"?  Cook it to 125-130 and slice?

    Sounds like you need to go hot and fast.  Hot, dry and cracked at the bottom, cold and wet at the top.

    @Foghorn You and your mystery meat, lol. I’m staying out of this one.

    No I’m not...
    Let me just put out there that you can braise most anything and put it in a tortilla. You can batter and fry most things.

    Three racks of St Louis ribs acquired. I guess I am going to see if that rig with the oval stone can cook three at one time. I got some peach spread also I might try mixing some in with bbq sauce fir a finish glaze.
  • FoghornFoghorn Posts: 8,995
    So, @Legume and @SciAggie, you guys got at the crux of my internal debate.  I think I'd rather have a taco/sandwich with braised meat than slices of relatively tough/lean sandwich meat.  I've got two of them.  Maybe I'll do one each way...

    It really is a great menu, & the ponies rule!  Funny thing is it started with my grandfathers, both were from Italy & were a real pain in the ass with the dego food & wine pretty much every day & at all holidays, not that that's a bad thing the food being phenomenal & all but when the few summertime holidays rolled around out came the ponies & 'Medigan' food.  I can still see those old greaseballs cooking this stuff & washing it all down with the High Life, and watermelon :).

    I'm more than happy to carry on that fine tradition till I'm outa here...

    Nothing special. Don't celebrate this day anymore, as my own dad is gone, and my daughter has never had any interest. 'Mother's Day' is also a dirty word around here. Currently avoiding answering calls from the jailhouse, as we are fed up. Eff it, I think I'll cook that pork tenderloin!
