3 Bean Smoked Beans, Vampire Rub Ribs, Smoked Mac and Cheese with Garlic Confit topping and Chipotle Honey Sauced Ribs.

Trying to get all of this together at the same time left little time for pictures.

Fired up the Pit Boss and rubbed one rack of ribs with Meat Church Holy Voodoo and the other rack with a Garlic and Black Pepper based custom rub.

Whole those were starting, a new batch of Garlic Confit was made in preparation for topping Cold Iron's Smoked Mac and Cheese.



Instead of elbows, I chose to use Gemelli to help grab all the flavors.

After 2 hours the Vampire Rub Ribs were wrapped in butcher paper that was seasoned with some left over garlic infused olive oil from simmering the garlic cloves in.

The other rack was sauced with a homemade Chipotle Honey sauce and set for 15 min then wrapped in foil.

The Mac and Cheese was added to the smoker at this time.

The Beans were added shortly thereafter so that all the things finished at the same time.

The Garlic Confit was added to the Mac and Cheese for the last 30 minutes.
