SQWIBS Pig Candy (Rib Meat)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys, I know this was posted under my Golf Outing post, but wanted to break it down a bit in case folks were interested in making them.

 

 

 
Pig Candy

After trimming the Spare ribs St. Louis style I keep the trimmings with the cartilage for beans and stuff. The solid meat from the trimmings are rubbed with my old style rub (Paprika, Brown sugar etc... and placed on the pit for a few hours.
 
While this is a great treat for my family (They call 'em boneless ribs) I wanted more bang for my buck. Hey why not get two dishes from one!

  • So while I was tending the pit I glanced down at the foil pan that I rubbed the Rib trimmings in and I figured it was time to play. The rub was my Old style Pork Rub.

  • Apple juice is added and then thrown on top of the firebox

I served these at our Boy Scout Golf Outing and they were a hit. They sort of remind me of Burnt Ends.
It's a shame there wasn't more of them, they went so damn quick I'm wondering if next time I should add some pork loin, about a 60 rib meat / 40 loin meat ratio? Or better yet, I could save the trimmings and freeze to make a larger batch next time.

I was thinking the whole thread about how you could add some bulk, for more of a portion. I was thinking you could add some chops, or sometimes we get the loin roasts pretty cheap here. You could do any of those. What about a smaller picnic roast mixed with some loin meat?

Yeah something that has more fat than loins would work well.
