Not to start problems here, just 2 quick questions for ya.

#1 Can you use an electric smoker?

#2 Can you use country style ribs or must they be in a rack form?

:roll: Sheesh! those are good questions though.

You can definitely use an electric smoker. The only stipulation is that the food must be either grilled or smoked, fuel source is not specified.

The second one is the REALLY good question. Seeing as how this was not specified, I could say yes for some, no for others. Allow me to explain.

Some pork Country Style Ribs are cut from the Shoulder (Butt). I usually see them labeled here as Shoulder Cut Country Style ribs. I would not consider these ribs since they are actually from the shoulder and not from the "ribs". However, other pork Country Style Ribs come from the Rib end of the Loin, and I would say these qualify as "ribs" based on where they are cut from.

Beef Country Style Ribs are from the chuck and are cut from the Chuck, which would not be "ribs" at all.

I would have to say that due to the confusion, it will be best if Country Style Ribs are NOT allowed. Due to many beef ribs only being available in single-bone form, I would say that being in rack form is not required, but bones are required as evidence as of them actually being ribs.

That's my final decision. Thank you for asking. It is best this gets resolved early.

Well the reason I asked is due to our weather forcast.......rain tonite and tomorrow w/t-storms, changing over to snow possible including up to 50 mph winds expected.
My electric smoker works great in the garage.
I have a package of country style, bone in ribs that I was planning on doing on the electric Cookshack w/smoke.
Guess im out of the contest, thanks for the long, well thought out awnsers sir!

JD McGee 03-09-2009 08:13 PM

Perfect timing...my wife's girlfriend is flying up from LA this weekend to go to the Barry Manilow concert with my her (I dodged that bullet :twisted:) and she suggested I cook some ribs for her...it's the least I could do since she saved me from having to listen to the Copa Cabana Guy all night! :lol::lol::lol: Baby Back's on the BGE it is...:biggrin:

Ribs. Can be from any animal. Pork, Beef, Lamb, Goat, even chicken if you want to try and sneak that one by everyone, but I'm guessing "Chicken Ribs" won't get a lot of votes. Plus, if you slice them, they would be really thin.:biggrin:

Weiser 03-09-2009 09:11 PM

I dunno Baker, I think that your original question leaves
a lot of things open for interpretation.:wink:

Chicken Ribs.... sounds like my X

What it the protest policy? Did this week start yesterday? If so, I may have a submission.

What "original question" did I ask that left open too many things for interpretation?

gpalasz 03-09-2009 09:16 PM

Submit..all pron is worthy of a looksy

Weiser 03-09-2009 09:19 PM

My mistake, got your question confused with Bull's response.
After re-reading your challenge, I'll go back to the store.
I was early by a day. I'll post yesterday's just to keep things on the up and up.

Weiser

The Ribs in that photo look dry although, the Lettuce adds a bit of color.
The Glycerin makes for a nice shine on the meat.
Had those been your's, I would have lost all respect.
