I know some of y'all broke out that rusty grill, post up some pics~!

I threw a couple racks of beef ribs and one rack of pork ribs on the 22 inch Weber and made some homemade slaw, the ribs turned out fantastic.

I just used some SPG on the beef ribs and Lambert's sweet rub o mine on the St. Louis cut pork ribs, cooked in-direct for about 2-1/2 - 3 hours @ 250~ish, then wrapped for another hour or so, I glazed the pork ribs with some sauce and grilled them direct for about 15-20 minutes.





About 2 hours in.






On the pork rubs, I added some Wicker's marinade/basting sauce before wrapping.





I added some beef broth to the beef ribs, as usual, lots of shrinkage with beef ribs.







Just a little something I dreamed up, beef rib/slaw sandwich, it was so good.

I forgot to mentioned, for smoke I used oak wood chunks.
My son bought me a whiskey barrel after it had been drained from local distillery. I have plenty of whiskey white oak for smoking. Just put some chunks on top of the kingsford and let it go!

I've used them, they worked good for me, but be aware, they burns hot AF though, I think it's the residual whiskey that leached into the wood.

We went out to the weekend place and I cooked for a crowd. ABTs on the BGE, along with some steaks and burgers, and grilled corn. The offset smoker had beef ribs, pork shoulders, chicken quarters, and several types of sausages.

Some of our friends beat us out to the lake, and called us as we were en route, informing that the A/C was not working. Swell! Another friend said he was buddies with a guy who had an A/C business and could get him to swing by, as the buddy was only 85 miles away...on a Friday evening....on a holiday. Damned if the guy didn't show up, wife in tow, and get us up and running (some pests had chewed through an electric wire somewhere, stopping the compressor from firing up). They ended up staying for the weekend as well and since the guy was a good fisherman, we grilled fish in addition to the other stuff. He ended up not charging us a penny for the service call!

No pictures, but a great time was had by one and all, and folks who insisted they didn't really care for beef ribs went back for seconds...or thirds. My wife started teaching the A/C guy's wife how to make quilts: there were about six or seven ladies who were pretty much having a class on those things. Several friends brought mucho guns and made a lot of noise. And there were pies. Homemade pies.

I really love it when I get to fire up that offset, and I like to think that the outdoor cooking is what ties everything together for a great weekend.

Sounded like an awesome weekend, thanks for sharing!

One of the things I enjoy the most is roughing it at our little fishing cabin in Ark, although it has a little stove, it rarely gets used, I'm always cooking on the Weber charcoal grill outside!

Sounds like you guys had a good weekend. I packed up the WSM, a cooler full of meat and one of beer and headed the YB Nats to hang out with the Honk if parts fall off crew. I did 6 racks of ribs and some pulled pork.

Rick is good people and so's his wife. I do this every year with them. You have the o-fficial invite to join us next time for a rib, a sandwich and/or an adult beverage. Do you hit Cecil for the monthly SCSO?

no....almost a 5 1/2 drive. Rick was extremely gracious to meet a fellow YB'er, though...real nice guy. I do hope to take you up on some decent food, though! The track food sucked, and I only went down with an air matress, and a wallet....lol
