Country Ribs With A Pipe Wrench? W/QVIEW AND A Surprise

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I was going to do a roast pork and sauerkraut and dumplings smoke, but the wife don't like dumplings so I added potatoes instead. You can use a pork loin, spare ribs, but I had these, it will still work. The sauerkraut is the surprise. But things went wrong quickly. As I was getting things ready the damned jar of the sauerkraut wouldn't open. Ok, not a big deal I thought, got out a towel, no dice, one of those jar opener rubber things, no, bang on the lid with a knife, no, under hot water, no, wife holding while I twist, no, Vice grips, no, werent big enough, ah a pipe wrench, wasn't big enough, WAIT! What about that BIG SUCKER on the wall that I haven't used in 20 years, YES, maybe there is hope. Took two hands to get it off the wall brought in and Guess What? It worked.


After. Needed a quick fix after 10 minutes of opening a jar, sheesh.

Now, onto the smoke. 2 pounds sauerkraut, white onoins and white potatoes, caraway seeds, garlic powder and lemon pepper.

The Ribs, about 3 pounds seasoned with garlic powder,and lemon pepper.

In the smoker at 230' for a couple hours of smoke then covered to braise a while.

Thanks for watching folks, we had quite a laugh in the chat about the wrench. They also had quiite a few other ideas that were hilarious. Hope ya get a laugh also.

If your wife is anything like mine, she probably naagged when you got the "biggest pipe wrench in the world" and didnt believe you when you said "Some day i might need it sweetie." Today is its time to be a star. Shine on pipe wrench, shine oncool.gif

I like the pipe wrench, looks like something I'd use to open a jar. lol

Have ya ever used a high heel for a hammer and a butter knife for a screwdriver? Two of my favorite tools. redface.gif

I was thinking of you when I thought of this, since you make your own kraut.

Thanks for the points!


Thanks, it will be very tasty.

Thanks Jeanie, lol on the high heels, but I don't own any.cool.gif

I took it out and took a few pics and the battery died so I will post them tonight. It looks and smells yummy.

Finished Pics

Here is the finale'.

This AM, fork tender.

This AM before cooling in fridge.

Wifes dinner, just old fashioned grub, nothing fancy.
She declared this a 5 star meal.

At about $1.00 a pound the above meal cost less than a dollar. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Corn was 3 for a buck, potatoes .99 a pound, ribs .99, sweet! And delicious to boot.

Thanks for watching my QVIEW, I appreciate all the comments.

Yea but I was able to eat it without pickin out the glass.icon_smile.gif

Wife never eats the same dinner 2 nights in a row. Last night I asked her what she wanted since I do all the cooking. She said "Do we have any ribs left?. They were soooo good."

So, thats what she had. All I had to do was steam them for 10 minutes and dinner was served.

Nice and easy.icon_smile.gif
