Hi,

We've been working on an apple flavor profile for our ribs and I like the way they've been turning out, but lately I've been thinking about cherry.

If you try to layer some fruit flavors in your ribs, what fruit do you use?

Thanks!

Eric

It's my opinion, that fruiting BBQ is like fruiting a beer, ya don't do it.

I have a Cherry recipe for ribs. Used it at a comp a couple of weeks ago and got a tie for 5th. My wife loves them, too sweet for me though.

Cherry wood for color and mellow smoke taste is as far as I go on ribs.

i agree with this almost one thousand percent...

look at patio daddio's chicken drumstick sauce recipe. switch out grape jelly for a cherry jelly, jam, preserve, and dayum, you've got a good sauce for ribs.

for beer, belgiums lindemans lambic is pretty darn good. kreik being my fave.

Rasberry Chipolte makes for some fine eating.Try on poultry and many other things as well as ribs. Next finish glazes in the works are- Black and Red Rasberry with different peppers, New Mexico probably, Elderberry, Blackberry with Chipolte. Have on hand Cherry,Chocolate Flake- Chipolte and Plum- Habenaro and Apricot -Jalapeno. All are delicous and homemade. Blues Hog Rasberry Chipolte rocks for a store bought product. Plums and Pork have been traced all the way back to the Romans I've been told. Always looking for quality preserves. Steve.

Try Durian in your rib glaze. The judges all agree there is nothing like it!

Cherry Jello.

Add a little to your rub, gives a nice red color and depending on the quantity a hint of fruitiness. Try it out some time, I promise.

I use an apple jelly / corn syrup glaze with rub in it.
smoke 'em with persimmon wood chunks.

I mix in some cherry preserves with BBQ sauce for another level of flavor.

I don't know what is worse, the taste or smell of Durian.

Ya, I bet. In some countries it's illegal to even have Durian indoors due to it's odor. :becky:

Fruit flavor on ribs is a big gamble. I wouldn't do it.

Once in a while I get a rib with a pineapple glaze flavor. It seems to score well at the judging table.
