View Full Version : Lazy ribs pron.

There is a big cook coming up for me this weekend. In the past years, right before this annual rib contest, I would do a couple of practice racks the week before to get back into the groove of things with using the "Old Beast". Monday, I got to thinking about it and realized that it would be the only day I had to practice so, suddenly ribs were to be on the menu for dinner. The only problem was, I really wasn't feeling up to it that day but, knowing better, I took a couple of racks out to thaw in the morning and planned on throwing them on later in the afternoon. It came time to cook and my heart still wasn't in it but, I went and got the "Old Beast" in position and went to fire her up, then realized I was out of propane for my weed burner. Not letting that stop my I decided to just fire up the chimney and make due, which I did, even though it took a lot longer to get things going. I then walked in and looked at the full racks of spares like some sort of foe in my laziness. At first I thought of just leaving them just the way they were and throwing them on the cooker but, then realized they wouldn't cook the way I wanted to. 10 minutes later and some quick work of the knife, I had them butchered down into St. Louis stlye. I then went to prepare them for the cooker but, instead of going down to the basement to get what I really needed I just made due with what was in the fridge, then I got my mixtures wrong but, went ahead anyways. Here are the pics of where it went from there.
There aren't anymore pics after these simply because I was too disgusted with myself to take any, and my fingers were a bit sticky. End results were that the flavors suffered because I was too lazy to go get the correct ingredients and pay closer attention to the mixing process. Also because I hadn't used my weed burner, the Old Beast wasn't as hot as it normally would have been when I put the ribs on. They got a little dried out. In the end, I got what I desereved from being lazy. The only upside is that the mistakes were edible and I have had lunch for a couple of days from it but, no where near the quality that I expect. The way I'm looking at it is, in the future, it's "If you're going to do it, do it right or don't do it at all!". Thanks for looking!

I can properly dispose of them for you, if needed. You might need to sweeten the deal with a jar or two, though, 'cause they look so awful!

J/K; I'm pretty sure your bads would compare to my goods!

I'm putting a stick in the mail so you can thrash yourself some more with it. I wouldn't advise throwing it in Big Bertha though... :becky:
