Blizzard BBQ
Well, its snowing pretty good and I got out of work early! :clap:

What to do, what to do on such a quiet snowy evening... :decision:

I know! Let's BBQ! Most folks outside of this forum would think I am nuts, but I know you BBQ junkies are just like me and can appreciate checking off "Blizzard BBQ" from your BBQ Bucket list.

So I got home at 2:15, busted out the weed burner and fired up the BGE. While that came up to temp, I prepped a rack of St. Louis ribs.

Here is my weather proof box for the cyber Q. I only use it for the temp probe (no fan) on the BGE.[/URL]

Took about 35 minutes to get to 275 and on went the ribs. Threw in some apple and cherry wood for good measure and away we go!

Here we are 2 hours into the cook!

On Long Island? Wait for my power to go out. :cry:

Bob, I will probably lose power as well. My street loses it easily. During Sandy I was able to secure a 10,000 watt generator. I picked up 10 gallons of gas last night. I hope I don't need it!

We are expecting 18".

BobM 02-08-2013 04:06 PM

I have a 2kw generator, and also about 10 gallons of gasoline, I hope neither one of us needs it.

I do have a case and a half of beer, which will probably help more! :mrgreen:

Jaskew82 02-08-2013 04:10 PM

lol Bob. I've got a few dozen bottles that could help as well. Sadly, very little beer!

Jaskew82 02-08-2013 05:24 PM

Well they have been on for about 3 hours. Time to foil...

Nothing too complex, just a small amount of apple juice with some Plowboys Yardbird sprinkled in.

Back on the egg for another hour or so before getting sauced with "Hillside BBQ" sauce (my own home blend).

BTW, snow banks make excellent wind blocks.

Well after the sun set, this is what it started to look like outside...

But after an hour or so in the foil, I brought the ribs inside. I cut the rack in half and sauced one side. Through them both back on the BGE for another 10 minutes to set the sauced ribs. Here they are sliced.

Here are the "boys"... dissappointed they didn't get any scraps. My wife and I enjoyed the Blizzard Ribs too much to share.

All in all, it was a good cook. First time ever doing ribs on the BGE. It worked out pretty well. I got up to temp super fast and tossed them on with little care. The weed burner got the coals lit in no more than 1 minute. It was a very easy cook. I will use the BGE more for smaller cooks like this.

What a night for your first rib cook on your BGE! Looks delicious to me. Thanks for giving me something good to look at, I'm sick of the news.

Nice looking ribs! Effort appreciated. :thumb:
