It's that wonderful time of year when every day is BBQ day, of course here in beautiful Gilbert, AZ that's 365 days a year. Friday was just some easy peasy yardbird legs using the Vortex on the Weber. Jeff's Original Rub, Sweet Baby Ray's!

Started the day off with a little garbage can fire from last night's ashes, old dog gonna have to learn a new trick or two, wife got crabby.

Once everything's settled down got the Weber fired back up using the SnS today. Rack of St Louis ribs with some hickory chunks for smoke, I'll try not to burn the house down.

As long as I was on a roll I decided I'd go without a probe in the rack, 225º-250º for 6 & 1/2 hours. Hey, it worked!

Plated up with a little homemade slaw and some tater salad, the American way.

You never know what's in store on any given day. One day you may just about start a fire that'll burn your house down. On another you might just fire up some good pork ribs. What the hell. some days you just might do both! Thanks for lookin'! RAY

Ray, all looks great! Love the color on both the legs and the Ribs. Sorry you had a fire issue, I'm sure it won't happen again (that's what she said) lol. Thanks for sharing, I know those tasted every bit as good as they looked.

All I can get is what they give me Jeff, and this one will probably cost me a little something. Thanks for the Like Jeff it is much appreciated! RAY

Those ribs look tasty.
Thanks Daspy, they were darned good and tasted even better then they looked! Hope to get this lucky next time. RAY


Looks great. Love that color on the chicken. Glad you didn’t burn down the neighborhood!
Thanks Smkryng Smkryng , that SBR works for great color and some real good flavor too. The wife seems to be happy that I didn't burn down the house, so there's that! Thanks you for the Like, it is very much appreciated! RAY

Hey, thank you Mike, just another boring day! Someone did point out to me the metal bucket I've deposited ashes into for the last 15-20 years. My story was maybe not enough coffee made for me this morning before I had to get started firing things up. It didn't fly very far, but it was better than sitting there with nothing to say! Thank you for the Like Mike, I do appreciate it! RAY

All looks good . Great color on the chicken . What is that about a 9 " radius to the big end ? Kettle puts out some good eats .

Time to buy is when you don't need it .

Thanks Rich! The Vortex has a diameter of 8" on the narrow end, 12" on the wide, and is 4&5/8" high. If we lived in the White House when people went on tours they'd want to be sure to check out The Toilet Tissue Room, Pandemic Jan won't be sweating that anytime soon, if ever. Thanks for the Like Rich, much appreciated. RAY
