    Beef ribs and buffalo wings and a fattie and ABT's and that's it.
  6. has anyone tried the chicken cherry bombs  Jeff posted   they look really good (light on the habanero)  but I hate trying anything new on my picky-picky family. 
  7. my family insists that I make taquitos  so I'm going to smoke the chuck roast and chicken and make the taquitos from the smoked meat.   I'd love to try those chicken cherry bombs

    I think D'Bear calls 'em bacon on a stick. I have had two racks of spare ribs curing almost two weeks now in Pops brine. Will smoke 'em 3 hours, foil and put in the oven, the last hour will raise the heat and right now thinking some type of glaze. Peach maple? Kumquat....?? Maybe Satsuma. Or I could go wild and use some Totanka magic dust or some BBQ glaze...... Who knows for sure?

    Its not too informative, but it shows the ribs. This time I am shortening the brine to one week, I think I will like it better. Also as per Senor Disco's experiment I used less sugar and added molasses. I had really been thinking about dusting them with Tatonka Dust before smoking also. <shrugs> so many options so few ribs.

    Just my wife and me this Sunday.  Will smoke something Saturday.  Going to let the meat counter deliver the inspiration on Friday when I go shopping.

    Sunday for lunch and the game we'll have the leftover meat plus my $50 Focaccia sandwich, homemade potato skins, BBQ Kettle Cut potato chips, Crunchy Cheetos, beer, homemade apple pie and vanilla bean ice cream.

    BTW, the sandwich doesn't actually cost $50 to make.  We gave it that name because the first time I made it I went to the store to get JUST the sandwich fixin's and I ended up spending more than $50 on the fixin's and a whole lot more.  Same thing happens every time I make the sandwich!    

    Update:  we decided to skip the sandwich.  I've got two 2.5 lb Santa Maria seasoned tri tips and a 3.5 lbs Chuckie for Mexican Barbacoa on the smoker.  We'll make mock fajitas out of the tri tips and shredded beef tacos out of the chuckie.  The rest stays the same.

    We're having a few friends over. I will be smoking 2 pork butts, rubbed with Tatonka Dust. That will go into pulled pork sliders. Likely, I will make some Scarbelly Wings, too. Everyone always asks for them.

    GO HAWKS!!!

    Above posted here because I couldn't find the BS thread!
  20. The chicken cherry bombs sound real interesting, but I've got everything ready now for a couple rib slabs, two fatties, some ABTs and Dutch's wicked baked beans.  The chicken cherry bombs will have to wait.  Going to be an interesting weekend for me, first time I've ever mixed up what I'm smoking, plus pretty much filling the Smoke Vault up to capacity.
