Mother nature has been interfering with my outdoor cooking for the last two weeks. lol
I finally had the chance to fire up the Memphis this week.

I usually make these in my kitchen but decided to use the Pro. I seasoned the ribs with Chinese five spice and placed them in the Pro. (with the usual spam)

Made my five spice salt (1TBS five spice powder and 5TBS salt)
made a marinade using..
5 whole star anise (you can use 1 tsp anise seed)
3 TBS sherry
3 TBS soy
1 tsp salt
3 tsp sugar
some scallions
minced fresh ginger ( about 1 TBS)
After placing the mixture in a measuring cup, I added enough water to bring it up to 2 cups

After the ribs smoked for 2 hours I made a foil pouch and placed the ribs in meat side down...then topped with the marinade.

after about 2 more hours I checked for pull back on the ribs

I cut the ribs, rolled in corn starch and gave them a quick fry.. just until lightly crisp

I sprinkled the fried ribs with the five spice salt and made some smokey fried rice to go with them.

Confucius says, "That is the new number one on the Chinese take out menu"! Simply amazing, the quick fry at the end is genius! :thumb:

Awesome bones, Jeannie. 2 hours in the foil? I would think they would become mush. Mine do in only 1 hour in foil.

How about posting the fried rice recipe?

Thank you Smokemaster! here's how I made the rice..
I used a basic fried rice recipe. I smoked the rice because I had the grill going... The rice was just dry rice and chicken stock with a bit of salt... After the rice absorbed the stock I removed it from the cooker and covered it until needed.

I fry 2 beaten eggs in a little bit of oil then remove from the skillet...
then saute minced onions, green onions, one clove of garlic, minced ginger.. and shredded cooked meat (if you have any on hand) in a small amount of oil.

Add 2 cups of cooked rice
1TBs of soy sauce
1/4 tsp of sugar
salt to taste

You can add as much salt, soy and sugar as you like. Also I had planned on adding peas and whole corn kernals but got wrapped up in wanting to taste the pork that I forgot! I did add some shredded chinese cabbage.
Feel free to add any veggies you like.
I also like minced water chestnuts in mine.. I just like the crunch they add.

Cut the cooked eggs into strips and add to the mix, saving a few to sprinkle on top. I sprinkle the top with sliced scallions too.

I'm sure there are many really good fried rice recipes out there. This is the basic one I start with. Thanks again!

Bill that's kind of you to say. Thanks!
Blue, I appreciate it..Thanks!



Awesome bones, Jeannie. 2 hours in the foil? I would think they would become mush. Mine do in only 1 hour in foil.
Michael, I'm not a foiler so I try to keep an eye on them to avoid mush. lol
I'm not fond of mushy ribs either! They worked fine at 2 hrs.
Thanks!
