    Country Style Ribs

    Ken, I usually try to keep the temp at about 275° and I will cook them for about 3-4 hours depending on the thickness of the cuts. I'll usually take a couple of forks and start checking them as it gets near the 3 hour point. If they are very tender and easily start to pull apart when I insert...

    Country Style Ribs

    Oh wow, I almost missed seeing this thread again. I posted these pictures back in 2012. Somehow it came back to life. Thanks, everyone, for all the nice comments. I don't think I have grilled country style ribs since these pics were posted. They do look kind of good, even if I say so myself. I...

    How to get good flavor in the middle of a pork butt?

    With a smoked pork butt, I always shred the meat and mix it up thoroughly so that the flavor is evenly dispersed throughout the pork. The only flavoring agent I add is salt to the shredded pork when I pull it apart. I will also take some of the liquid drippings and spoon it over the shredded...

    Saturday Ribs

    Thought I would smoke some ribs today. They spent about 3 hours on the OTG with charcoal and a little hickory. I then foiled them for about 2 more hours. Finished them on the gas grill for about 30 minutes after they were sauced. [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] Made a...

    Grilled Chuck Roast

    Thanks, everyone, for all the nice comments. Darren, I don't think there is much chance of it drying out as long as you check it frequently and remove it from the smoker when it first gets tender. I took these roasts to 195°. For about the last hour of the smoke, I wrapped them in foil just so I...

    Grilled Leg of Lamb

    Tried something new today. I took a boneless leg of lamb and butterflied it. Then I marinated it in olive oil, garlic, chopped onion, apple cider vinegar, zest of lemon, and fresh rosemary, for about an hour. [/URL][/IMG] I then seared it over high heat for 5 minutes per side. [/URL][/IMG]...
