    Looking through Steve Raichlen Rib book for something different and came across this

    Cousin Dave's Chocolate Chipotle Ribs

    Cooking on the New Braunfels

    temp around 225

    start time 12:00 noon  finished at 6:30

    2 whole chipotle peppers seeds in

    2 Jalapeno peppers seed in

    1 scotch bonnet pepper seeds in

    1/2 of medium onion

    garlic  2 cloves

    1/4 cup cilantro

    chocolate bar 

    two strips of lemon zest

    2 tablespoons brown sugar

    1 tablespoon chile powder

    2 teaspoons course salt

    1 teaspoon lemon pepper

    vegetable oil

    chop all ingredients and place in food processor

    blend well adding oil till it creates a nice thick paste

    spread paste over both sides of ribs and set in fridge overnight

    get smoker going with some pecan wood chunks and cook about three hours

    foiled with some honey and butter and another coat of the chocolate paste

    back in for about two hours

    remove from foil and back on the smoker with a couple fresh hickory wood chunks for an hour and a half

    let em rest and slice em up for your pals

    Heres how it went down,,,,,,,,,,,,

    taking that silver skin off is easy with a dull knife

    everything sliced up ready for the processor

    doesnt that look yummy,   dont touch your eyes!

    after a night in the fridge

    onto the braunfels

    hey where's my piece?

    into the foil

    looking tasty, that camera was a little shaky by this time of day!

    let that baby rest for a little bit,  doesn't that crust look nice 

    sliced up ready to eat

    close up

    closer up

    thanks for looking

    Wow, looks great!!  I've always liked chicken mole and never thought about pork............now, my mouth is wet and thinking.  It's amazing that so many people don't know about the wonders of chocolate and meat and when I mention it, they make a funny face, but once they taste it, they want more.  I sometimes add some peanut butter or ground up pumpkin seeds to the rub/paste.

    BTW..........what's the rum for???not mentioned in the ingredients.................
  6. Just wondered if the spice level was really high after the cook or did it mellow after the smoke process. It really looks great, nice job
