  • Re: TROLL???

    Lizzie, don't worry about it.   The "Troll Count" is more about how much actual trolls don't like you than you are a troll.  We all know each other here, to one degree or another.   I have 355 "trolls".  Sleep like a baby at night.
    356.  :)
  • Re: New to the Egg (LBGE) and forums!

    Welcome!  Enjoy the forum and ignore the troll flags.  Not all of us are like that.  Hopefully those flags will go away since they are being greatly abused by a select few.

    MemphisBBQ If you are at work on Monday, I may bring in a couple of slabs for lunch.

    Thanks for the comments guys.  To test the temp I stuck the thermopen down in the middle of a really meaty section but I can see that it would probably be inaccurate.  It was more for my piece of mind.  When I tried to pick it up with tongs and the tongs cut into the meat, I figured they were done enough.
  • Re: First ever rib cook starting now.

    Ok, I broke the rule of the forum and didnt grab pics of the final product.  Now they are nothing but a pile of bones.  Best lunch ever.

    I tried to do the "bend test" but they didnt pass.  Is it because the slab was cut in half?

    I pulled them off when the thermopen said 195 degrees.  The meat was tender enough that the tongs cut into the meat when I picked up the slabs.

    Anyone have any suggestions for next time?  They had an excellent taste.  My wife who swore she didnt like ribs even liked them and suggested I make these again.

    Progress pic after one hour in.  Added more juice so it wont burn.  About to leave and go run some errands.  Temp holding steady at 250.
