View Full Version : Buttery smooth, melt in your mouth METAL beef ribs!

This was a few Saturdays ago, for my mother's birthday. Bought up 20 pounds of short ribs and sawed them in half for purposes of serving; didn't want folks fighting over bones! A little (lot) of kosher salt, some fire and a little smoke, three hours of beer drinking, death metal and done!

Metal horns make for better beef (I was listening to the new Cattle Decapitation while salting the meat, which seemed appropriate):

The wait begins!

Interestingly, the up draft from the chimney, which is 10 feet tall, pulls the smoke through the meat, forwards and then right over the top of the fire shelf and then straight up. Almost no smoke wafts out of the opening of the grill.

Now things are getting interesting!

Cattle Decapitation's music is mainly comprised of, "songs <that> protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals, the abuse of the environment and touch subjects such as misanthropy and genocide of the human race". Also, Travis Ryan, the vocalist, is a vegetarian (maybe even a vegan). So for those reasons, I threw on some healthy healthy salt and oil covered veggies!

These things literally fell apart:

Thank you everyone! Ckelly, these ribs are from Meat the Live Butcher in White Center, in Seattle. The supplier is Painted Hills from Oregon. These are, hands down, THE best ribs I've ever eaten, and I'll include Argentine beef in this statement too. Never had better, here or down there.

Thanks!
I'll have to go swing by there and check them out.
Painted Hills does have some wonderful beef!

Yes they do! Their grain finished meat is the best.

They look great! I like the idea of cutting them in half like that for serving.
Much better then small individual pieces.

Nice looking ribs.

I was hoping for a picture of the cook wearing viking horns or something like that. I guess I was confused.

Anyway, I gotta ask... who wishes they could click garyk1398 avatar and get a bigger version?

No wearing horns here. My wife hasn't cheated on me yet, but then that Sancho might be waiting for his chance somewhere... :clap:

Seattle might be a little far for me to get my ribs (I'm in eastern PA). Although I prefer mine with a side of SLAYER \m/

Two questions?

misanthropy--what does this word mean?

Can you step back with your camera and take more pictures of the smoker? I'm trying to wrap my mind around it and your pictures just tease.

Mouth watering ribs btw.

That is one of the coolest cookers I have ever seen. Is that an Argentine grill like Francis Mallman uses?

I second Royalslover, mind taking a picture of your smoker? I would really like to see the whole thing.

A dislike of humankind.

Absolutely! I'll do it this afternoon.

Awesome! For really long cooks, I like to put a Between the Buried and Me playlist together and progmetal out while sipping suds.

Thank you sir! And yes, I'll get to it this afternoon! Regarding Francis Mallman, I've got his book, but that's about as far as the relationship goes, lol! My grill is indeed based off of traditional Argentine cookers that are common in most households there. I've been cooking with these things for twenty years, since the very first time that I traveled there. It wasn't until about 2 years ago that we bought a house with a backyard arranged in such a way that this kind of a cooker would be feasible. I started construction in April of 2014 and have been slowly finishing.

I've seen Francis' show on PBS I believe. He is an amazing cook. Ever since I watched his show I've been really jealous of anyone that has an argentine style grill.

Have you built up your grill from scratch? I would be really interested in some plans if you did. I'm hoping that in our new house I can have an outdoor kitchen with an argentine grill, pizza oven, BGE and my future offset smoker. Just don't tell my wife.... :tape:

Crap! I got too busy this afternoon and forgot to take photos! That said, once I do, I'll be happy to send you an overview and some dimensions. Building an Argentine style grill is like most things: give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach him to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime. Building an asador means knowing the ratio of the mouth to the throat to the rise. All of this is based off of the size of the grill and your brazier. I'm most happy to help you with this!

Thank you! I do have plans for Cattle later this month and Ghost. I understand that the Faceless are coming through soon with a new lineup! Their teaser on metalinjection is awesome! Oh, tomorrow is Symphony X and Overkill...

As promised! The handle that the tongs are hanging from is a crank for raising and lowering the grill.

The hood and chimney are ten feet tall. I've been letting it rust and have about a year to go, at which point I'll sand it down a little to even out the color. Then I'll treat it to preserve the patina and stop any more rust.

It is much larger than I thought it was going to be. Very very cool though.
