July 4th Grilling

Super hot here yesterday. I cooked a rack each of beef and pork ribs and two pieces of pork belly. We had a great feast but I think I like cooking in 20 degree weather better! For the smoke I used chips made from whiskey barrels. First time using these, they added a nice flavor.
 

 

 

 

 

 
Hope everyone's 4th was as delicious as ours!

    Joe, they really were so good. My local Fairway Market had them.  I paid about $3 for the pack of two. I also bought another pack to store in the freezer.

    Thanks, Marlene! I do dream of owning a good smoker one day. Maybe after the kids finish college!

    If you lived closer you could have my Weber Smokey Mountain.

    I don't need it now having the Egg.

    Thanks for the thought Marlene. When I have a little extra the Weber Smokey Mountain is the one I probably will get. I've looked at the Egg at a local store and it is a thing of beauty!

    Where did you get the Beef ribs, they looked great, not easy to find meaty ribs.

    I bought them at my local Fairway Market. They have an incredible selection of meats including the pork belly which I paid about $3 for. They also had "very trimmed" racks of beef ribs. I prefer the meatier ones.

     Another great job!  The ribs look really good - the pork belly thing intrigues me, though - I'm wondering are they what we call salt pork here in the south?

    No, no salt, other than what I preseasoned them with. I was surprised at how cheap they were considering they are one of the "in" things with chefs. At another store I was able to get a couple of lamb shanks for about $2.50 each. Since they became popular they are often out of my budget. I remember my Mom making lamb shanks when I was a kid because they were so inexpensive!
