This weekend flew by. Another Monday is close at hand. Ugh. Oh well. I did cook something today so here comes another cooking post! Vegetarians should leave now.
Spirit of St. Louis Sunday
So the Big Steel Keg forum is having a BBQ ribs throwdown contest. We will all cook spare ribs, take a couple of pictures, and then votes will be cast on the final product. I can do this post because I am not going to show the final pictures I will submit and the way we have to show them will look nothing like these pics so no one should know which are mine. I do not think I will be even close to winning anyway; these ribs came out excellent but they did not look mall that pretty.
Anyways, I went with St. Louis style spare ribs. I cooked two racks so I could take the best looking set. I did two different spice rubs as well. Everything had to be done outside due to no kitchen of course. Here is the meat before:
All rubbed up with spices:
The last picture I will put up shows the ribs after about 4 hours at 250 degrees. This is before the saucing step but I will leave that picture out. Here they are:
Like I said, not pretty but they were tasty! I brought them up to a friends house and the couple and their kids ate them all up. Good stuff.
Have a good night.
