Wide-Cut Individual Smoked Pork Spare Ribs

Published

on


The St. Louis style spare ribs in this recipe are cut into individual pieces before they are cooked. This is is not a widely used method but I think it should be. By cutting the ribs beforehand, you get more seasoning and more smoke on more surface area and you don't have to worry about slicing them before serving.. they come out ready to satisfy!
Let me just walk you through it step by step in the recipe below–

Step 1: Remove Membrane (optional)
A lot of the ribs I've been getting recently at Costco has the membrane already removed (which I'm completely ok with). If the membrane is still intact on your purchased ribs, you can choose to remove it or leave it there. I've tried it both ways, multiple times and in my opinion it's a little better when it's removed but then I'm not complaining if it's still on there. Not TOO big of a deal really.
If you do want to remove it, flip the ribs to bone side up, use a knife, spoon or just your finger to start pulling up on that plastic-like membrane that covers the bones.
Tip: use a paper towel or catfish pliers for better grip.
Pull it clean off in 1 piece or in 3 pieces (doesn't matter) and you're done!
Step 2: Slice Ribs
Now for the fun part!
Most of the time we smoke the ribs as a whole rack.. not today though;-)
Today we are slicing the ribs apart so that maximum meat is left on both sides of the bone.
To do this make sure the ribs are bone side up so you can see the bones better and slice off the first bone to your left, right against the bone.

Now slice as close against the bone on the right as you can leaving maximum meat on the bone in the center.. like this:

Doing it this way, you get a bone in the center with maximum meat on both sides of the bone.
Continue these same cuts until you end up with about 6 center ribs with lots of meat on both sides.

You'll end up with about 7 bone fragments with very little meat on them. Those can be saved for a soup, pot of beans, etc.
Step 3: Add Sauce and Rub
Lay the extra wide ribs down in a foil pan–

Make sure you have a bottle of my barbecue sauce and original rub (Purchase formula here | Purchase bottled products) for the seasoning part..

A little sauce on each one first– I wasn't going for dots and blobs but I was finishing off a bottle that just had a little in it. It dribbled out slowly but I was patient and didn't waste a bit!

Get your hands dirty and rub it in to the top, sides and bottom of each one.

Now apply ample amounts of Jeff's original rub (Purchase formula here | Purchase bottled rub) on all sides.. pat it in a little to make it stay before you flip them over.

All done and everything needs to spend some time together!
Step 4: Overnight in the Fridge
Place the pan of ribs in the fridge for at least 4 hours but overnight is MUCH better.
The small amount of salt in the original rub will pull some of the rib juices to the surface where it will mix with the rub and sauce and become a paste. Some of that salt and other flavor will get absorbed into the meat over the next several hours.
The next morning you'll see that the rub, sauce and meat has become one and it'll smell amazing!

Place the ribs on my new favorite stainless steel rack and pan or a cooling rack if you have one or you can just leave them and place them directly on the grate.
I really like using the stainless steel rack and pan as that holds the meat up off the bottom of the pan, provides a drip pan and still allows the smoke to get all the way around the meat.. all while keeping your smoker grates clean.
Wanna be even more smart and efficient? Wrap the pan in heavy duty foil before you place the grate in there and you'll only have to wash the rack when you're finished!
Lay the extra-wide ribs on the rack and they are ready for the smoker.

Step 5: Set up Smoker
I fired up the Camp Chef Woodwind Wi-Fi to Hi Smoke which just means it runs at an average of 225°F and creates a very liberal amount of smoke.
Use whatever smoker you have or want to use whether it's charcoal, splits, gas, electric, you get the idea. Run about 225°F no matter what smoker you use.
If your smoker uses a water pan, fill it up for good measure.
If your smoker did not come with a water pan (pellet smokers do not) then you can skip this step.
I used pecan but hickory or almost any smoking wood that you have available will work great for these ribs and give them an amazing flavor.
Once your smoker is preheated and ready to cook, let's get the ribs in there.
Step 6: Smoke the Meat
Place the pan of ribs into the smoker or you can place them directly onto the grates if you prefer.

Let them cook for about 3 hours first to form a really good crust. Check them at this point and if they look like the rub on the top is nice and dry, feel free to spritz them with some apple juice, Pepsi, whatever you have. Something with a little sugar in it is best.
Step 7: Sauce and Sear
At hour 4, it's time to put some sauce on them, of course you should use Jeff's original barbecue sauce (Purchase formula here | Purchase bottled rub) but if you have another favorite, well, whatever 😉

Coat them good and spread it out over the top and sides.

Now crank up the heat. I have a Camp Chef Woodwind so I pushed it on up to 425°F to get a good finish on them. If you also have a smoker that can cook hot like that, then I recommend you do the same.
In my case, I wanted to finish and serve the ribs in the Made-in blue carbon roasting pan so I let the sauce set in the 425°F heat of the smoker for about 15 minutes then moved them all to that roasting pan and right back into the smoker.
You can also just leave them as they are and continue on at 425°F or whatever the highest heat you can muster whether that's 250, 275 or whatever. You'll get there.
Tip: Another option is to bring them in at this point and put them into the oven preheated to 425°F.
At 425°F, it took mine an additional 40 minutes to be get the color I wanted on the ribs and to get some char on the sauce.. they turned out beautiful if you ask me!

Step 8: Serve 'em Up
Serve them just as soon as they are finished and watch the smiling faces and enjoy the quietness as everyone stops talking to eat.. that's how you know the food is amazing 😉

Classic southern tomato sandwiches are a great way to showcase summer tomatoes at their peak. With just a pinch of salt and generous amounts of mayonnaise, they'll showcase juicy heirlooms. You can also use peaches and feta to make an extra-refreshing summer salad. A grilled corn salad topped with a miso honey butter is another summertime classic.

You can even set up a burger bar so your guests can build their own burgers. In addition to that, you can serve them with a variety of sides and beverages.

Grilled chicken is another easy and delicious late summer grilling idea. Grilled chicken can be seasoned with fresh black pepper, thyme, lemon, and salt. Or, you can make a marinade and a glaze for it. Grilled carrots are also great as a side dish.

Wild-caught seafood is another great late summer grilling idea. You can also prepare swordfish skewers with salsa verde for a truly delicious meal. These simple yet tasty recipes are sure to impress guests.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you keep a charcoal grill lit.

A charcoal grill needs to be lit first. Then, place the coals in the grill. The easiest way is to use a chimney starter. This device is made up of a tube of metal that has been filled with charcoal and briquettes. Once ignited, it creates hot air which rises through a chimney and ignites the charcoal within the grill.

How to keep a charcoal grill hot?

You can keep a charcoal barbecue hot by placing coals in the bottom half of your grill and covering it with a lid. This method is perfect for grilling meats, chicken breasts or fish fillets.

If you are grilling larger items such as whole chickens, whole pork shoulders, ribs or briskets, these should be placed directly on the coals. You can also cover smaller foods like shrimp, scallops and salmon with foil.

It is important that you don't leave the charcoal grill's lid open for too long. The temperature will drop if the lid is left open for too long, which can lead to uneven cooking.

How to set up and ignite a charcoal grill

Charcoal grills are available in two versions: charcoal and electric. Electric grills are easier to operate than charcoal grills but don't produce the same amount of heat. You will also find that electric grills cost less than charcoal grills.

To light a charcoal fire, place coals on top of the grill. Next, add wood chunks or chips to the firebox. When the coals have reached a certain temperature, use tongs to spread them evenly over the grill. When the coals begin to burn down, remove the lid and wait until all the coals are completely extinguished.

How long can I leave my charcoal grill on?

A charcoal grill can remain on for many hours before you are done cooking. Be careful not to leave your grill on because it could get too hot.

After 30 minutes, it is the best time for your grill to be taken off. This is when the coals have sufficiently burned to stop any flare-ups.

An hour is the second best time to remove your charcoal grill. The majority of the charcoal will be consumed by the food.

The worst time for charcoal to be removed is after three hours. At this point, most of your coals will have turned black and become useless. Charcoal will not provide heat anymore.

Statistics

  • You do this with charcoal, though, by distributing at least 75 percent of the coals to one side, creating two different temperature zones. (foodandwine.com)
  • Flip the steak over at about 60% of the cooking time. (omahasteaks.com)

  4. Keep the lid tightened. It helps to keep the temperature constant and prevents moisture loss.
  5. Clean regularly. Regular cleaning will help ensure your pellet smoker remains free from any dirt or unpleasant odors.
  6. Buy quality pellets. High-quality pellets will ensure your pellet smoker runs smoothly.
  7. Your pellet smoker should not be overloaded. Overloading your pellet smoker can increase the danger of fire hazards.
  8. Check that the air vents are working properly. Air vents allow smoke to escape, preventing fires.
  9. The temperature gauge should be checked frequently. You can monitor the progress in your meals by checking it frequently.

  17. Refrigerate. Refrigeration slows down spoilage, making it possible to store food longer.
  18. Vacuum seal your food. Vacuum sealing food locks in its nutrients.
  19. Blend in a blender. Blending food releases its juices. It enhances its flavor.
  20. A juicer is a great tool. Juicing foods reduces waste and improves digestion.

Butter Recipes For Corn and Grilled Corn With Feta

Published

on

One of the most delicious ways to jazz up corn is with a delicious butter recipe. This one-ingredient corn butter can be spread on cornbread or baked potatoes, blended into ice creams, or folded into vegetables in place of cream. It can even be added to a corn salad or black bean and corn salad. Whitney Wright reveals a wide range of applications for this versatile ingredient in a Genius article.

A good butter recipe for corn can also include chile powder and barbecue sauce. This combination is fantastic with grilled corn, and can be refrigerated for two weeks. For an added touch of flavor, try adding garlic and chili powder to the butter. A small saucepan can be used to thicken the butter and serve it over corn.

Another tasty butter recipe for corn is seasoned butter. It can be flavored with salt or pepper. For additional flavor, you can also add some paprika or cayenne pepper. This recipe will not only enhance the flavor of corn but also make the husks char. This recipe is easy and fast to make, and you can also pair it with meat for a mouth-watering meal.

One of the easiest and most popular summer side dishes is grilled corn on the cob. Everyone loves it, and it can be easily dressed up with butter. Although it is always great with just salt and butter, flavored butter is an even better way to elevate corn on the cob. My personal favorite is garlic parmesan butter, but garlic butter isn't bad either.

BBQ Chicken Grills and Barbeque Chicken Thighs on Grill

Published

on

BBQ chicken grills are a great way to cook up a whole chicken or parts of it. You can get creative with your chicken grilling recipes. It's also a great way to try out different flavors. To make your barbecue chicken even tastier, use a barbecue sauce!

Grilling chicken on a BBQ chicken grill brings out a smoky flavor that enhances the taste and texture. The perfect technique is to sear chicken skin side down over direct heat and then move it to indirect heat to cook. The chicken should be cooked through to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

For the best BBQ chicken, you should allow it to cook for about an hour to two hours. Remember that chicken cooks faster when it's on a grill than when it's roasted or boiled in a microwave. Ideally, you should turn your chicken over once during the cooking process. If you're worried that your chicken might not be done, you can always flip it over at low temperature and finish cooking it with a sear on the hot side of the grill. Once it's finished cooking, you can serve it up with a side of spaghetti or a salad.

When it comes to cooking chicken on a BBQ, make sure to choose a dark meat chicken. This meat is more likely to retain flavor and will not dry out easily. Moreover, chicken thighs and legs can withstand longer cooking times. Choosing bone-in chicken is also a good idea because it's leaner and will cook faster.

Chicken breasts are a great choice for grilling because they are not high in fat. They can also be very juicy on the grill. They are also packed with flavor. But one disadvantage of chicken breasts is that their thickness is not uniform. Thinner parts of the chicken breast will dry out before the thicker part. However, this problem is easy to fix.

When it comes to cooking chicken on a BBQ grill, temperature control is crucial. When grilling a whole chicken, you want the skin to be crispy. You should also opt for indirect heat zones as these will ensure a more even cook. This will prevent the meat from getting burnt.

Once you have the chicken ready, you should brush it with the barbecue sauce that has been prepared earlier. This will help the sauce stay on the chicken and create a concentrated coating. The remaining barbecue sauce will be used for basting the legs. The barbecue chicken grills are a great way to cook chicken.

Once you've cooked the chicken, you can serve it over salad or pasta. It also goes well with vegetables and a cold beer.

How To

5 Mistakes to Avoid when Grilling Over Charcoal

When you're grilling over charcoal, there are some mistakes that you should avoid. Here are five rookie mistakes you should avoid when grilling on charcoal.

1) Don't use too many charcoal.

It's easy to burn your food when you don’t know how to properly grill. You must ensure that you have the correct amount of charcoal in your grill to cook the food. Too many charcoal pieces can cause the fire to burn quickly. This could result in the fire not producing heat. You will also lose the flavor and aroma of your food.

2) Keep the lid closed.

Smoke can easily be lost from your food if you leave it open during cooking. To ensure that smoke does not escape from the grill, it is best to cover the lid. But, you should not cover the entire grill. Instead, just cover half of the grill so that you can still see what you are doing.

3) Remember to turn off the gas.

You should never forget to turn off the natural gas before closing the lid. If you do not, you could end up with a lot more carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is one the most common causes to death for people who grill.

4) Do not leave the grill unattended.

You should always take care of the grill when you are using it. You should always have someone to help you in the event of anything going wrong. Keep the lid shut while you're gone.

5) Never use lighter fluid.

The fluid that is lighter than the recommended one is extremely flammable. Grilling with lighter fluid is a bad idea. Instead, use a water-filled spray bottle. You can extinguish any flames by using a spray bottle filled with water.
