2013-07-04 - Baby Back Ribs and Smoked Corn Con Queso for America's Birthday

Happy Independence Day!!! 

 

We'll start of with a little pic of some true American overconsumption.  'Murica!  Heck yeah!

 

My little picture of true American overconsumption.

 

 

 

Anyway, we're celebrating with some baby backs on the smoker, with some corn con queso soon to follow.  Throw in some French fries (perhaps Freedom Fries for today) and a beer or two, as well as a marathon viewing of History Channel's "The Revolution", and that's just all kinds of awesome.  I'm planning to do the typical 2-2-1 method, at a temp range around 250.  For the foiling phase, I will use my own adaptation of Chef Jimmy's foiling sauce.

 

Here we go....

Well folks, here is the rest:

 

 

At the two hour mark, foiling with my take on Chef Jimmy's foil juice.  I took his KC-style version, and substituted whole grain Dijon for the mustard and honey as the sweetener.

Back in the smoker for another two hours

Out of the foil after two hours

Preparing the corn with a little queso fresco and fresh cilantro from our herb garden, with a butter slather to hold it on

 

Ingredients for the corn

 

 

A view of it pressed in

Recovered and tied loosely, headed for the smoker.  I started them about a half hour into the "1" phase of the 2-2-1

 

Wrapped and tied

 

 

Ribs come off.  Looking good.  Headed for a warm oven to hold at temp

 

Done smoking

 

 

Foiling juice was poured out of the foil and into the fat separator, and was chilled in the fridge for a few to let it separate

 

I let the foiling juice cool in the fat separator

 

 

Into the saucepan with the separated juice.  I added about a half cup of ketchup after this to thicken it, brushed a small amount onto the ribs just to provide that sticky sweetness, and served it on the side.

 

Into the saucepan with the separated juice, then adding ketchup as a thickener

 

 

After a little sauce

 

Added the sauce

 

 

Fries took a bath in peanut oil and were seasoned with sea salt, pepper, and Lawry's seasoned salt

 

Some fries, hot out of a peanut oil bath

 

 

Good stuff.  Not oversmoked, but just enough to get the flavor and rich bark

Another look

 

Another view

 

After about an hour total, corn is done

And here is the meal.  These were some good eats when paired with a nice Sangria.

Well folks, thanks for watching!

Definitely have to make some of that corn. Have had it several times at a Mexican restaurant I like and it's great!! They don't smoke it though. That takes it to the next level I'm sure.
