I made a kind of pork jerky out of three slabs of spare ribs a few weeks ago. I had them on the Grargriller and was too busy with my new WSM.

U ain't alone! I hate it when I mess up, but I hate it worse when I throw it away. I recently threw away 2 chuck ribs and it nearly ate me!

I royally farked my sons first birthday earlier this year. Started 4 butts the night before, fell asleep and woke up 6 hours later to a cold drum. Had my maverick setup but it never went off. They must have hit the stall and killed the coals. I had no way to tell how long they sat in the danger zone so out they went. Luckily I had just stocked up on yardbirds and was able to cook enough for the crowd in time.

I've definitely had a few screw-ups. Left chicken breasts in too long before and we all know how that turns out. Over-cooked salmon and tuna steaks once or twice too and that's really a bummer. We're all human and when it happens to me, it's usually because I got distracted by kids or something else going on at home. It's like anything else, though. Without a few failures sprinkled in, the triumphs wouldn't feel as good.

Yep, been there done that. Usually getting hit by a truck with a Budweiser license plate is the major fault!

I haven't messed one up yet but the time will come. I worked many years in restaurants and still do some part time work for a friend that is a chef. That gives me a base of experience with handling and cooking food.

A couple of weeks ago while smoking two racks of ribs I feel asleep and when I awoke the temp in my UDS had climbed up to 375º. I though they were toast so to speak but the ribs came out flavorful just a touch dry.

I had tried to cook several racks of spareribs on a brand new smoker that I had never used. They were to be served at a rehearsal dinner. When I got done with them they were all charcoal lumps on my new smoker! I don't cook for other people on a new smoker for a few weeks, to break it in.
