Smokefest 2016 with Q-View


Joined Jul 19, 2016
I decided I needed to empty out the freezer this weekend.

Spare Ribs - I'm a big fan of Johnny Triggs method for ribs.

1st Attempt @ Chicken Thighs

I trimmed them up and marinated with Ken's Northern Italian on Thurs. evening. I usually only marinate for 24 hrs., but I have a 4 month old and I've gotta get stuff going when I can. A majority of them I pulled the skin back and scrapped a little bit, but nothing to indepth.

I used Little E Shake & Rub that I picked up in OBX a couple weeks ago. I applied liberally on both sides and under the skin.

I threw them in the fridge uncover for a couple hours to let the skins dry out a bit. I cooked these on the Weber with a little Parkay until they 164 degrees.

Then I had some Stubb's Sticky Sweet BBQ warming up and I dipped the chicken in that to completly cover. Then back to the grill to finish up.

Chicken turned out good.

I also did some beef ribs. I did your basic salt, pepper, garlic. I put them on the top rack and didn't toich them for 6 hours. I probally should have wrapped them. They were pretty to look at but a little tough. Next time I'll probally jist do one thing and concentrate on that.

I decided last minute to get some sweet and hot itlian sausages and smoke them too. I threw them on for aboit 2.5 hrs. Yumm!

This was my Pit Boss for the day.

Holy Cow!

That had to be an exhausting day!

Everything looks great, but who is going to eat it all?

Point for a marathon smoke!

Thanks! about 8 hours of smoking so not too bad. We had 8 people and only about 1/2 a slab of ribs, a couple pieces of chicken and some sauage left over.
