Bacon Explosion Fatties!

I didn’t get a chance to do any BBQing this past weekend, so since my buddy Mike and I were planning on a guy’s night on Monday we figured since neither one of us had attempted “Bacon Explosion Fatties” yet, we we might as well try em’ out.  Bacon Explosions, or Fatties, or whatever you […]

Super Bowl 2012 Pork Spare Ribs

I’ll come right out and say it:  I’m not a big pork spare ribs guy.  I’m a loin backs (baby backs) snob.  I just think the quality of the cut on the loin backs is a lot tastier and leaner than spares.  Now…you’re gonna get a whole lot more meat on spares, but that will […]

Guest Post (Mike) – Weekend Spare Ribs

I got my spare ribs from Sam’s Club.  Three full racks weighing in at approximately 15 pounds.  Cut off the excess fat and removed the membrane.  I rubbed them down first with garlic chile infused olive oil, then patted them down with Myron Mixon’s Basic Rib Rub.  Let them sit in the refrigerator for 18 […]

Picnic Shoulder vs Boston Butt

So up to this point, I’ve only smoked Boston butts for pulled pork, but last night as part of our New Year’s Eve jam here at the house, my buddy Mike smoked a pork “picnic” shoulder.  In case you’re like me and didn’t really know the difference between a Boston butt and a picnic, I’ve […]

Ran-Dawg’s Pepper Pork Sauce

I’m going to try hard and post a sauce recipe at least once a month, so please try and hold me to that 🙂  With that said, I wanted my first sauce recipe to be my absolute favorite.  Out of all the many homemade sauces I make, this one is usually everyone’s favorite.  Take note […]

Shane's Rib Shack Ribs

Shane’s Rib Shack

Stopped by Shane’s Rib Shack today while visiting family in Jacksonville.  I guess I’ve been living under a rock b/c I had never heard of them before.  Turns out, they’re a massive franchise primarily in the Southeast with stores in 14 states.  Generally speaking, if I stop by a BBQ spot I’ve never tried before, […]
