Built a fire in the Smoker tonight to get it seasoned again. The applewood was producing some nice smoke and that huge smoker jumped to 225 degrees in about 20 minutes time. It saw a top-end heat of about 375 in about 45 minutes time and all the paint is still intact. We were able to hold it above 275 for over 30 minutes with four to five 2-3 inch round sticks of wood.

We have orders for 148 racks of ribs saturday so we'll be busy. I'll post some pics here saturday as the cooking progresses.

Fund raiser. Actually, I think we are a bit cheap on price, but we the guy heading up the cooking wants to be low the first time or two to rebuild the client list. We're priced at $13 a slab, others in town are $15 - $18 a slab and the grocery store is selling 2 slab packs uncooked for $20.

The men used to do rib smoking 3-4 years ago. When I got here they hadn't done them in quite a while. The guy that is the rib cooker was out of church for a while and the smoker was in pretty bad shape. He's back and I have overhauled the Smoker so we are setting out to start cooking again.

You need to get your self one of these, load it up with smoking apple wood and a bit of pork fat and have a real object lesson how the Gospel and the grace of God is a sweet aroma to the sinner.

Well, we got our first hitch of the cooking endeaver. The supplier forgot to load the ribs on the truck this morning. How do you forget $1300 worth of meat? The salesman is personally driving the load out as I type. The upside is that they would have brought frozen ribs on the truck, now they are bringing fresh-packed refrigerated ribs instead of frozen.

Actually losing a rib can help improve circulation.

What a day! We cooked 162 ribs in about 12 hours. THEN after finally getting everything cleaned up and getting a shower myself, the wife wants to run out to the lake outside of town to watch a fireworks show they were putting on since she had to work on the 4th. Been going solid since 4:30 am.

I'll post some pics tommorow.

I swore off ribs. They just aren't that great. Too difficult to eat. Messy.

'course, maybe the ribs I've had at Tony Roma's and Steak and Ale are the wrong ribs to be eating.

The food looks outstanding, pastor! How many hours did you put into those suckers?

PastorMikH
07-10-2005, 12:15 PM
The wife asked me what we can have for lunch, I said "anything but ribs"


After spending 12 hours smoking them, I think I'll need a few days before eating any more of them.

PastorMikH

12 hours total. We smoked 162 racks in all. They were taking about two - two and a half hours each to cook.

At one point though, we threw some baked potatoes and corn on the cob on, then pulled a rack for lunch.

Delicious!


We rubbed some BBQ Spices on them, then every 15-20 minutes we opened up and shot apple juice on the ribs. They were really tender and tasty.

Just curious since I've only done babybacks and not spareribs in the smoker....do spareribs have a membrane that needs to be removed like bb?

There is the membrane on the inside of the ribs, but I just chew around it like I do the ribs.

I can't imagine removing the membrane off of 162 racks.

Both spareribs and baby backs have the same membrane (since they come from the same cut essentially). And you don't *HAVE* to remove it. If you smoke those puppies for 6 hours, the membrane comes right off.

And suprisingly, we didn't use much wood. We started off with 1 rick of wood and we have enough to do at least 1 more cooking, probably two.

I was suprised at how efficient it was.
