When I trim spareribs St Louis style, I save the trimmings for rib tips. I cut them to one inch cubes and freeze them. I had a buddy coming over for dinner so I made some Char Siu Rib tips.

I started them by giving them a sprinkle with a basic rub:

  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) paprika
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) brown sugar
  • 15 ml (1 teaspoon) kosher salt
  • 1 ml (1/4 teaspoon) cayenne



I put them in a 230 F pellet smoker with Whiskey Oak Barrel pellets.

I smoked them for 3 hours. While they were smoking, I made up some Char Siu Marinade by mixing the following in a saucepan.
  • 175 ml (2/3 cup) soy sauce
  • 50 ml (1/4 cup) hoisin
  • 5 ml (1 teaspoon) five spice
  • 8 ml (1 1/2 teaspoon) sriracha (could substitute 3 ml (1/2 teaspoon) hot pepper sauce)
  • 375 ml (1 1/2 cup) brown sugar
Then I brought it to a boil and turned it off.

I put the marinade and the rib tips in a roasting pan and covered it in foil and put it back in the smoker.

I smoked for 2 hours.

I took the rib tips out of the pan and put them back in the smoker. I brushed them with the liquid from the roast pan and smoked for 20 minutes. I brushed them again and smoked for 30 minutes.

There are a lot of deer here. I had to fence my yard because the come in herds and decimated She Who Must Be Obeyed's garden. Sadly, I live next to a cross country ski area that is closed for hunting.

However, most people around here prefer Elk and Moose. I prefer the meat from elk and moose but haven't ever turned down venison. I suspect you will be a bit warmer hunting in Georgia than here but the area is famous for its hunting and there are a lot of people who work as guides. We get people from all over the world coming in to hunt the Elk Valley.

Dang'it Disco,
I just ate half a rack of St. Louis ribs but that plate looks soooo good I could devour it for dessert.
Griz said it looked like candy, I agree, so dessert it would be.

Very nice plated shot, mmmm!

LIKED!

Thanks for the compliment but I am disappointed in you. A half rack? I heard you Americans had appetites.
