  2. Hi all, I will be firing up my big joe for the first time tomorrow for some baby back ribs. I have done ribs before on my Bradley smoker & weber gaser using the 3-2-0.5 (3 hours on the smoker, 2 hours wrapped on the Weber and 0.5 hours with sauce). I do the last two steps on the weber just because the ribs are more accessible for wrapping and sauce. Family usually loves these. Ribs on the Joe: I am planning on dry rub, no sugar ~5 hours @ 225-250 with no wrap, occasional spritzing and add sauce for last 30 minutes or so. Questions: 1- Is a drop pan necessary? Dry or with liquid in it? Based on my reading so far, I think not necessary other than to keep the heat deflector clean... opinions? 2- To wrap or not to wrap? It seems both are acceptable. preferences? impact? 3- how do I know they are done? by temp? bones? probe? Any other suggestions? I'll post during and after pics tomorrow. Thanks
  3. Spent some time yesterday with just the wife and I making some beef ribs on out stickburner, first time in forever that we have not had to cook for an event, so it was nice to just be able to have some hot dogs for appetizer while waiting on these beef ribs. Hope everyone’s Sunday is enjoyable and relaxing enjoy 572E25BB-1878-40D9-8700-82BD2C854DE1.MOV
  4. So I smoked some ribs yesterday (pics to follow) and I had a couple questions, which I'll list below. It was just two of us, so I went with just one rack of pre-cut St Louis Style ribs. I was hoping to grab a full set of spares from the store, but they only had a ton of St Louis pre-trimmed sets. I used Oakridge BBQ's Dominator Sweet Rib Rub and glazed with Texas Pepper Jelly Craig's BBQ Sauce for the final 30 mins or so. Overall, they turned out pretty good but I'm hoping the forum here can help answer some questions (I may have an idea of what the answer is, but thought the experts here will have more knowledge than I). At any rate, questions below, and pics after that. I can't wait to smoke a pork butt in the next few weeks. Thanks and Enjoy! Kamado Joe, indirect of course. Heat deflector in lower position, ribs on top rack Aimed for 250 but the BJ held at 270 basically the whole cook Apple wood Spritzed with Apple Juice/Apple Cider Vinegar mix at the 2 hr mark every 20-ish minutes for an hour Glazed 30 mins prior to pulling Cooked about 5-5.5 hrs total 1 -- The ribs were fall off the bone tender, which is how we like them, however the bottom of the ribs were crusty/crispy. The rub has sugar in it, but I didn't think sugar would burn at that low temp. Any suggestions on what may have caused this? I did some research and couldn't find much. Unfortunately I didn't take a photo of this. 2 -- I haven't calibrated my dome thermometer. I did notice when I reverse-seared a steak last week that it overcooked before sear, so I'm thinking this may be the issue. 3 -- Pretty sure the ribs I got were a much smaller set than I anticipated. They weren't quite as tender as I was hoping for, but still came off the bone clean. Could the size be a reason why they were 'overcooked' a bit and the bottom crisped up? Photos: Seasoned, letting the BJ get to temp: 2-hour mark: 3-hour 15min mark: 4-hour mark: Final Product (5.5 hours): Cut:
  5. While in my butchers yesterday I saw what I assumed were Beef Short Ribs (I think they called them Plate Ribs ?). I've never cooked beef ribs before so I thought it was about time... I also had some Pork Ribs in the freezer so thought I would do those as well. Anyway, on the top rack we have the Pork Ribs. These had been marinated in a mixture of Hoisin Sauce, Lemon Juice, Rice Wine, Soy Sauce and a little Chilli Powder. The were cooked for approx. 3.5 hours, at 240F, after which they were perfectly tender: On the bottom rack we have the Short Ribs. I watched the excellent video @John Setzler made and basically followed that (although I used a different rub - a rub I had already made often use on Pork Ribs. After the best part of 5 hours at 250 they were completely tender: in fact they were so tender two of them fell apart when I removed them from the grill ! Anyway, here is my Rib Fest ready for the table: Everything was perfect. Tender, juicy and delicious. They were only lightly smoked (Oak) which is how I like things.... The top fat layer had crisped up and was soooo tasty (although an artery blocker....) And my family loved them which is the main thing.... Big thanks to @John Setzler for making the video on cooking Beef Short Ribs !
  6. Here's a recipe for some big bold beef chuck rubs with a big bold homemade rub to bring it to life! 2 to 4 Beef Chuck Short ribs, separated or on a full rack Rub: 3 tablespoons sea salt or kosher salt 3 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon fresh ground coffee 1 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper Worcestershire sauce to coat ribs Preheat your Kamado Joe to 250°F and setup for indirect cooking. Add a couple smoke wood chunks of your choice and cook these until they are probe tender (approximately 200°F internal meat temperature.)
  7. My wife had a hankering for some ribs this weekend, so I picked up some baby backs. Saturday rubbed them with brown sugar and sprinkled them with Dizzy Pig "Game On", wrapped with plastic and overnight in the fridge. Started them on the Akorn at 225 with some pecan wood smoke, doing a 2-2-1 since I'm doing back ribs. After 2 hours I wrapped them in heavy duty foil and back on at 225 to steam for 2 hours. While all this was going on I made a glaze with a can of Kern's Peach Nectar, a couple of shakes of Cajun Chupacabra, about 1-1/2 t Szechuan peppercorns and 1 t turmeric, letting it simmer super low while the ribs were cooking. Toasted 1 T sesame seeds to just starting to take on color and added them to the glaze. The reason I cooked the glaze so slow, was trying to extract as much flavor out of the Szechuan peppercorns as possible. Last 15 minutes of cooking in the wrap started letting temps climb to 300. Unwrapped and put back on at 300 to go for the last 1 hour. The last 1/2 hour started brushing on the glaze every 10 minutes. I have cooked a lot of ribs over the years; this may be my best try. Fall-off the bone tender, different layers of spice and really tasty.
  8. Super cheap country style pork ribs on the menu for today. These usually come out pretty good with a bit of prep, (insert rubbing joke here). Going to use Chris Lilly's Championship Pork Rub, it is readily available all over the internet. I also mixed up the injection but then my injector decided to break, so I stabbed some holes in the meat as I poured a bit on. Let it sit for an hour like that in the fridge while I got the grill going. I saved some of the injection and am now going to spritz since I didn't really get much in the meat. Oooohhhh just look at them bad boys, I rubbed them so good. My first overall impression of the rub was that it was an explosion of flavor. It had so much going on that I am interested to see how it turns out during the cooking process. Just put them on, now its time to find something else to do. As the wise Merle Haggard once said "I think I'll just stay here and drink". More to follow................
  9. I have not been active on here in a while because i haven't been cooking for a while too busy. yeah i know you should never be too busy to cook. I opted for something non traditional for t-day this year. we are going to families on friday and i was told that they would cook the turkey..... not sure if they doubt my skills or just dont like smoked anything?? I decided to cook for the home team this thanksgiving and do some rib therapy. ran around 250 for about 4 and 1/2 hours, rub with mustard night before and sprayed with some apple juice, cider vinegar, jim beam, and brown sugar, every 40min or so during the cook. turned in some good ribs!!!! (had some baked beans, yam patties candied, slaw, shells and cheese, and rolls to go with it) Great thanksgiving!!
  10. The new smaller chimney is just about perfect for firing up the Slow'n'Sear. Always fun playing with charcoal. My intention today was to add some hickory chunks to the coals, but I realized I'm out. All I had on hand was apple chunks. They are what I use on chicken and such...I really wanted that hickory smoke. Improvised and fired up the smoke tube that was filled with hardwood pellets. Tucked it under the lip of the water tray where it shouldn't have any fat dripping on it. I let them glaze a bit but didn't get any pics other than this one taken immediately after the rubs went on.
  11. Was coming home from the grocery store today and saw this.......caught my attention right away as I'd just seen Stephen King's "IT" yesterday with my son. Looking into the neighborhood as I passed by I could see more red balloons guiding you along..... I texted my boy and said, "No way I'm falling for that. Pennywise the Clown won't sucker me in like that". Got a quick reply from him that was funny. Those that have read the book or seen the newly released movie will know what I'm talking about. Freaky clown. Made it home and got started with my own freaky clowning around with some smoke sources. This A-Maze-N smoke tube adds some nice smoke to the WSM. I cheated and quick-started it with a KJ lighter tab. Positioned it so the opening faced the Pit Viper fan vent. Next time I may place it sideways. Opening up a new bag of coals always brings a smile. Simple pleasures in life. A lot of great childhood memories associated with this stuff. Also added a mini-split of pecan to the coals. Coming up to temp..... Membrane off & rub on while the smoker locks in to cruising temp. Ribs have been on for two hours and it's running rock steady on the 225 setting.
  12. Last week I brought in a competition cook team called Hickory Heat to share how to cook competition ribs. Also to raise awareness for a charity bbq contest they host to raise awareness for childhood brain cancer. As you know September is childhood brain cancer awareness month. Oh, you didn’t? Yeah, neither did we. It was just a coincidence but we are rolling with it. lol. I hope you guys like this one. It’s packed with info (…took me a week to edit it too. lol.)
  13. Got some curved holders to do 3 racks on my classic. And they came out great.
  14. I'm looking for tips on smoking whole spare ribs racks and keeping the thinner parts from drying out? How do the BBQ restaurants do it and keep the whole rib moist?
  15. Meant to post this earlier in the week. We just spent a week at a cottage with another couple. I planned on taking the Akorn Jr, but at the last moment left it at home due to limited space in the shared vehicle. This left me with a conundrum. How to smoke some ribs? Got to the resort and sure as S&$@, there is a BGE on the owners balcony. No, I cannot borrow it. More on that one later. Sunday rib night rolls around, so I prepped the baby backs. Pulled off the membrane, trimmed some fat and dusted with Tony Chacheres. I built a double BBQ foil smoker pack of Hickory and Maple chunks that I had smuggled into the truck before leaving home and dropped them directly onto the top of the heat plate in the 10 year old, $39 gasser grill, replaced the rusted steel grill and fired her up. Once we had a good plume of smoke I dropped the temps to minimum, and popped both racks onto the grill. For the next 2-1/2 to 3 hours I alternated gas on, gas off to keep the temps low enough. The smouldering wood chunks generated a bit of heat, but not quite enough. Finally I was able to dial up the heat a bit, sauce, turn, resauce and serve. Simply amazing results for a hostage situation if I may say so myself. Photos attached. As for the BGE, Tuesday was the Pot Luck Meet 'n Greet. The BGE owner did a Pork Loin that ended up like shoe leather. He asked me to give him a low and slow lesson before the week was over. "Sure" I replied, fingers crossed behind my back...
  16. Getting into catering and have a question. Someone has asked me to cater meats only- for twenty people. Baby backs ribs maybe 10 slabs and chicken. How would you estimate so there is enough? And I have no idea what size they're serving, she does even know.
  17. Rib hickory, chicken tangy and pulled pork sauces made and stashed in fridge...... Butt rub made....... Grill made ready.......... Lump, cherry and a couple chunks of apple.... Thought about it for a 1/2 second and then poured on a pile of mixed hardwood pellets.......should help the flavors.... Will fire this up with morning coffee and have it loaded prior to daylight. Hope the neighbors don't mind the music that'll come with the smoke.... Ribs & butts prepped....... Hyooge amounts of rubs on them for the overnight rest in the fridge....... Looking forward to the early hours tomorrow......coffee maker has been made ready......
  18. Sometimes You Gotta Have A Sticky Grill There are times when a sticky grill is the prelude to pleasure... So you can gaze on that slab of sloppy goodness... And lay out those meaty bones towards getting sauced from ear to ear...
  19. There are no words to describe the taste of this....unless you have cooked/smoked and tasted it! Without bragging, I think this feed is the best Iv'e ever cooked and thought that I would share Kamado=goodness... Thanks to forums like this! Cheers and beers, Billy.
  20. I put the BBQ sauce on a little too soon before the end of the cook, resulting in an excessive bark. But it was still good. I'm not sure if this is going to work... I'm not that good at posting pictures, hopefully I'll have better luck with video.
  21. did a homemade tropical island style rub on these today and it was a very good rub but I still feel like there was something missing to take it over the top. still can't put my finger on it. guess I'll have to eat a few more later on and then let me my mind work on figuring out what was missing. It might just be that I didn't give it long to marinate, only a couple of hours. Perhaps if I went for 12 hours or over night that might be the thing that I found lacking. don't mind the state of the grill. I did a complete burn off after this cook and now it is clean as a whistle.
  22. Hi all, Been lurking for a while, appreciate all the expertise here. My Akorn arrived yesterday and I'm all set to cook a few racks of baby back ribs for some guests tomorrow. After looking at a bunch of recipes and YouTube videos, here's my game plan: 1. Dry rub and put ribs on @275 for 1.5 hours 2. Wrap in foil with a little pineapple juice and back on for 45 min 3. Unwrap and baste and cook for 20-30 min to finish any suggestions? also, I don't have any lump hardwood, only hickory chips. How should I manage that? thanks!
  23. First let me set the stage (please bear with me, I'll try to be brief): I thawed 2 slabs of ribs in anticipation of our son spending the night Friday night. On Thursday an unplanned doctor appointment was scheduled for Friday at 1pm. My grandson graduated this morning (Saturday) at 7:30 (who schedules these things?) followed by a luncheon at our daughter's house. Don't forget the two slabs of ribs waiting patiently in the wings. What's a guy gonna do with them? No problem, I'll just take them to the luncheon. Of course, the doctor, 30 miles from home, was late and we got home at 5:00pm. My dilemma then is: Cook the ribs or toss them Get a few hours sleep so we don't sleep through the graduation Take cooked ribs to luncheon so that they will be recognized as ribs and not mush or bony leather Did I mention that the graduation was at 7:30 this morning? I fired up the Akorn before leaving for the doctor and stabilized it at 225 in anticipation of being back in 2 hours (sigh). Arriving home at 5pm, I added some hickory and apple chunks, put the ribs on as soon as the smoke cleared (5:30ish) and asked the time-tested question: "Now what?" Two choices: Stay up till 11:30. Not an option since the aforementioned, poorly-scheduled graduation is an hour away from home; or pull them pull them at 10pm, double-wrapped in foil, and placed them in a foil pan in the oven and scheduled the oven to come on at 4am to a temp of 225 for an hour and a half, get some sleep, get up, put the ribs in a cooler and head off to the graduation, and hope for the best. So I chose the second option. We arrived after the graduation, put the ribs in the oven at my daughter's house at 250 for 30 minutes to reheat them and to complete my time-proven six-hour rib cook. With not a little apprehension I removed the foil prepared to see the remains of a pig in the pan. What I found was RIBS!!!, perfect mahogany color. When I separated them they cut cleanly as expected, the test rib had a perfect bite, the ribs were moist and tender with a great smoke ring. The only downside was they they did not pull cleanly from the bone consistently. Another 15 minutes in the oven would have solved that problem. My takeaway from all of this? Don't sweat the small stuff? It'll work out. Sorry about the lack of pictures. A swarm of rib locusts, disguised as family members, swooped in and devoured them. Yet to be answered: who schedules high-school graduations at 7:30am?
  24. These ribs were about as simple as you can get and some of the best I've ever had or done. Started with full spares and trimmed down to St Louis. These were as easy as 1-2-3 Towards the end brushed on a nice glaze made from what was in the cupboards. Catusp, brown sugar, AC vinegar, orange marmalade and some of the rub I used on the ribs. (Sucklebusters Wild Thang)1) Coated with olive oil and rub2) Put them on the OctoForks3) spun them to probe tender over medium flame. (300* or so)Ribs don't have to be complicated that's for sure! These peppers were a first. Cut off the top and stuffed with cream cheese, replaced the top and wrapped in bacon.
  25. Anyone out there have the 13 X 17 inch stone sold by CGS? Would you recommend it for cooking ribs? What kind of rig do you use keep it suspended in or over the fire bowl? Was looking at getting it and either a woo ring or spider, but am also considering just resting it on top of a couple of pieces of steel flat bar resting on top of the fire bowl.
