Well, I'm trying to see how many days in a row I can use my new MES to cook something awesome, or atleast close to awesome. My first day was -

Day 1 - Prime Rib

Day 2 - Beef Short Ribs

So I put these nice ribs on the smoker at 225F for 4 hours. I didn't probe because I knew they would not be ready when I wanted to take them off. Even before I put them on the smoker I started my braising sauce. I used the ribs from yesterdays Prime Rib along with some beef stock I had in the freezer to get started. I added bay leaves, fresh thyme, peppercorns, a couple of dried peppers, a lemon cut in half. I let this simmer for 4 hours.





Here are the ribs after they had been on for three hours. I added a pan of sliced potatoes to catch some of the drippings. I later lightly crushed them and added sour cream, bacon, butter, lots of cheese, S&P.

Right before I was ready to pull the ribs I seared some pearl onions, carrots and celery to go in the sauce. Then I added two cans of tomato paste to the hot pan and smeared it all around and scraped it up, did that a few times to get a crust on the bottom of the pan then deglazed with red wine.







I added the ribs to the above mixture and put back on the smoker for 4 more hours. I mixed up the potatoes, made some homemade cornbread and some collard greens. What a great meal. The ribs were soooo tender and the sauce was so rich and yummy. I have a chuck roast on the smoker now and I just foiled it at 160F, I added some of this sauce in with it. Yummmm.



Thanks for looking! I'm working on a chuck roast for today's smoke!

Thanks everybody! Well, dang it I didn't get past day 2 because of being sick. I'll have to start over. I have a brisket (my nemesis) going in there tomorrow a.m. I have a new rub recipe that I tried on it. I've not had very good luck with the brisky in the past so maybe I'm due.
