Had to do something special for Memorial Day so I broke out the Copper Pot (plus I actually had the day to tend a fire)… starting the coals on the side burner….

Seasoned up some beef ribs, Wooster, kinders caramelized onion and S&P

A couple of baby backs with the loin meat removed and cut in 3 bone sections…..seasoned up with sweet hot mustard then Jeff’s original with the base spices doubled in portion and powder butter added, oh and I sub 1/2 the sugar for sugar in the raw.

I staged them for sizes and cook time…..

Let the spam and beef ribs go a bit more for color…. Ready to rest now….

The wife picked up a fresh pineapple so I dropped one of the VCC grates over the coals to sear it up….

Man oh man open fire sear is a beautiful thing….

All plates up….the wife made some mac salad and some Carolina red and white sauce for the pork ribs and spam……

Here you go!

1-1/4 cup Mayo, 1/4 cup white wine vinegar, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 4 tbs brown sugar, 1 tbs plus (it usually needs more) Worcestershire, 1 tbs lemon juice, 1 tsp horseradish but I do 1 tsp of brown mustard, 1/4 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp old bay seasoning, 1/2 tsp granulated onion , 1/2 tsp granulated garlic, salt and pepper to taste
Great looking cook Civil!! Thank you for sharing the great pics.
