Butts and Ribs for Offroading Weekend

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Every year, I host an Xterra Offroading weekend at my house.  This will be the 7th annual Back to School Run.  If you have an offroad vehicle and are near Central, NY, please stop by.  Even if you're not close, we've had people from as far away as California.  You don't have to own and Xterra, we like anyone who offroads.  Check it out at http://www.nexterra.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=5641

 

My Truck, fully locked and loaded 2000 Xterra.  This thing has been though everything:

Not at my best moment!

 

Now for dinner.  I have grilled chicken in the past for the Cornell recipe that I modified http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/cornell-chicken-marinade/detail.aspx I have been making this for 30 years, but I add pepper flakes and garlic and a few other modifications, but this year I decided to smoke some ribs and pork butts so I won't have to get on the grill after getting off the trails.  Right now, we will have 42 people camping on my front lawn for the weekend.

 

Since this is a busy week, I prepped everything today.  I used Jeff's rub on the ribs and butts.  On the butts, I measured out cure #1, then rubbed them in yellow mustard and then added the rub.  I will get them up to temperature in time, but I cured butts for a week once before, and I liked the results.  I forgot to take pictures of the ribs, but for those, I just rubbed them with mustard and then Jeff's rub.

Everyone knows yellow equals more horsepower and more traction. biggrin.gif

 

I wish I lived closer so I could bring my toy by and enjoy some of that food.

Yellow will get you out of every situation.

 

Maybe next year, Solaryellow.

I have dropped her back down to 35's to get some of the thrill back.

35's are definitely just right for me.

Do the floor mats double as "Floatation Devices"?

 

How'd the party turn out?

Very nice, Solaryellow!  By the way, my screen name is after my truck as well, which comes from my golden, Dagger.

It was a great weekend!  The ribs and pulled pork turned out great!  At least everyone said so!  They ate all of it.

 

 

Our previous years, chicken was on the menu.  It falls around "Talk Like a Pirate Day."
