Some Food Porn Pictures

We’ve been busy lately. No excuse for it. Haven’t had much time to work on recipes or post up new stuff and we’ve just been doing old things around here, but I thought I’d share some pictures anyway today. One thing we have been doing is homebrewing. This picture was a few weeks ago when we brewed up an… Continue reading Some Food Porn Pictures

My “McRib” Sandwich

     Is there anything more unnatural than the McRib Sandwich? McDonald’s should never have anything to do with BBQ (although for some strange reason, I do like their BBQ sauce on nuggets, but let’s not tell anybody that). Stick to making inferior hamburgers and leave BBQ alone!! (I’ll probably catch some grief for that considering… Continue reading My “McRib” Sandwich

Flanken-Cut Beef Short Ribs

     Last week, I had to go to Sam’s to pick up some ribs to cook for one of the Jawja cousins who was rolling through town and was going to be spending the night with us (that’s Georgia, for the rest of ya). While there, I was perusing the meat section, looking to see if… Continue reading Flanken-Cut Beef Short Ribs

Baby Back Ribs

     We are sooo glad that football season has finally rolled back around. Before you jump to conclusions, we are not those die hard football fans that sit around and watch football all weekend, morning, noon and night, every single game that comes on regardless of who’s playing. No, I watch my Baylor Bears (and Mrs. G has become… Continue reading Baby Back Ribs

Braised Short Ribs in a Red Wine Sauce on Creamy Polenta

     I’m not the kind of guy who will post blogs ahead of time for upcoming holidays. I’m not going to cook things days ahead just so I can get in a Valentine’s Day post before Valentine’s Day. I’m just not that kind of guy. Nothing against those that do, more power to you. I… Continue reading Braised Short Ribs in a Red Wine Sauce on Creamy Polenta

Auber Instruments Pit Controller Test Run

      I had the day off yesterday for MLK and I thought what a perfect day to try out my new pit controller that I got for Christmas on a rack of ribs. For those of you who don’t know, a pit controller does exactly what it sounds like….controls the temperature of your pit. There… Continue reading Auber Instruments Pit Controller Test Run

New Year’s @ The Ranch, Part 2

     Sunday at the ranch seemed a bit quieter than the day before. Partially due to the previous night’s festivities and partially because some people had to leave to get back for work on Monday (so we lost 4 adults and 2 kids). But the fun was not yet over for those who remained.     … Continue reading New Year’s @ The Ranch, Part 2
