Saturday in Missouri was BEAUTIFUL!! I picked up 3 nice slabs of ribs, and some JD sausage for my first Fatty. I threw together a rub of brown sugar, cayenne pepper, parika, garlic, and kosher salt for the ribs. Wind was a little strong but the smoker did very well maintaining temps. I tried Kingsford lump I found at our Sams club, never used it before. Except for a lot of popping and crackling when exposed to the wind, it held its temp and lasted a long time. Using 3-2-1 (actually 3-2-45 min) the ribs were tender and juicy. Having quite a bit of fire left I put some onions and green peppers in a skillet with some butter to pre-cook (can't spell sautea, sautee, sataue - never mind). Put some chili powder, garlic, sage, and cheddar on the sausage (mental note- roll sausage out on wax paper! sausage sticks to cutting board like glue). Put the roll of cheesy goodness on the smoker at 230 for a couple of hours and the results were fantastic. Pictures were taken and q-view was ready for upload then there was a comptuer SNAFU and all was lost. No proof!! Still thought it was worth sharing. With all the raves I got from the fatty, I'll be making many more in the future. My wife has declaired never to eat BBQ away from home again and my In-Laws think I should open a restaurant. If I do that, it won't be fun anymore. Hope everyone's weekend was as good.
