Default BWS Chubby 3: Brother 3-EYZ Rib Cook - FINAL PICS

Hi all,

So it's Sunday, and a pretty big sports day: the NHL All-Star game comes on @ 4 pm EST.

Now, the truth? Normally, I HATE the All-Star game. It disrupts the Red Wing's chemistry (usually, we're leading the league right about now), and it's boring as all get-out. All offence, no defence (excuse my Canadian spellings). BUT, given the rash of injuries we've experienced since mid-December, it's a good thing this year. AND, super D-man and Red Wing captain Nick Lidstron is one of the team captains. So, I decided to cook me some ribs.

Let's rewind to a few months ago. Brother Mister Bob was kind enough to do a charity cook (and his finshed product was amazing), and on one of the images of his meat package was the name: Restaurant Depot. So I did me some detective work, and saw that there was one of em in Alexandria, VA. So, me and the missus took a trip there (it's 40 minutes by the Beltway) and I scored me a heck of a deal:





23 lbs of ribs for $38.00. I hit the jackpot. I did have to cut em down in to St Louis cuts, but using my George Tichbourne knife, it took a little over a half-hour, and it was a heck of a lot of fun. I ended up with 6 or 8 (can't remember) huge slabs of ribs, and enough tips for 3-4 other meals. I cooked 2-4 slabs that day (again, can't remember) and wrapped and froze the rest.

So yesterday, I pulled out a package to defrost, in prep for today's cook.


Trimmed fat, and some silver. Not too much fat, I want em moist


Applied Brother 3-EYZ rub

Having done a very tasty cook of chicken using a very well-crafted rub by brother 3-EYZ, I decided to see what it could do for ribs. So, I applied a generous amount. While it settled in, I prepped for my cook:


Using the Maverick electric charcoal starter

This was a good opportunity to try out my new electric charcoal starter. Brother Steve @ 5-0 had it on sale for $16.99 (again, from memory), and I thought, what the heck, I'll try it.

Now, one of our brothers asked me to post my opinion on it, and here it is: it works WONDERFULLY! In less than 10 minutes, I had the charcoal going. I highly recommend it!

As an aside, after removing ther starter from the coals, I realized that a small addition was necessary: a hook that I can hang it on to allow it to safely cool. Keep this in mind if you buy one.

So, on to the next phase: lining the cooker:



I highly recommend foiling the drip tray, and placing an aluminum pan on top, to catch the drippings. It makes cleanup that much easier, and allows a efficient way to catch and remove the drippings for later use, if you're so inclined.

So, after installing the water (pre-heated, as brother Jestridge wisely advised), foiling and adding the drip tray, pan, and diffuser, I oiled the grates, installed the temp clip to my NanoQ, and waited for the Chubby to come to temp.

Afte coming to temp, I added my ribs. Gonna do a classic: 3-2-1 (pics to follow).

Gotta say, as I oiled the grates, I thought about a tv show I saw a while ago: and episode of Primal Grill. In that episode, Steve Raichlen talked about the origins of BBQ. And, he was mostly right: history records that Barbecoa was first noted as being done by native indian tribes in South America. But in truth, BBQ was first developed in Detroit, and as the natives watched their tribesman set up his pit, someone asked him this:

1st native: "You invent BBQ. How you know this?"

2nd native: "Me-um learned it in Detroit"

Of course, Detroit continued to lead. Henry Ford (a Detroiter) invented charcoal. Being born & raised in HockeyTown, I'm quite proud of our BBQ heritage.

So, got the ribs on @ 12:30. At 3:30, I'll foil, and proceed to the next phase.

UPDATE: Just looked at the Chubby, and the temp is rock-solid. Gotta say, the NanoQ is worth every penny, and minion cooking is okay. I'm a convert.

Should be good. Got homemade coleslaw, homemade garlic mased potatoes, and ribs.

And wouldn't you know it, the wife was called by a client with an emegency, and in fact, has to travel tomorrow for them.

Hope to get to take some pics, and EAT soon... I'm starving!

So, she finally got done. Here's the finish:




Note: no sauce on these. The one on the bottom right is what I call my "North American" cut. Looks like the continent... complete with Florida on the bottom right.



Of course, the wife had to improve my cole slaw. She added some dried cranberries. Must admit, they did make the slaw better.

SECONDS:



No sauce. Below, I slather some Blues Hog on em:



Now, here's my take on brother 3-EYZ's rub: FANTASTIC on ribs, too. It's got a great "bite" to it. In fact, Blues Hog (a slightly sweeter sauce) is amazing with 3-EYZ's rub. A 3 star combo!!!

Oh, and the Chubby: a joy to use. The large water tray gave the ribs some real moistness.

The slaw was made from a head of cabbage I chopped, the carrots were pre-cut from Whole Foods (makes life easier). Some mayo, lemon juice, horseradish, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, salt (don't tell the wife), and pepper, and a dash of olive oil. Let it rest to set the flavors.
