Ribs ...... need I say more? Oh yeah, duh! What kind of Ribs? Right! Well lets see .... I think I will talk about some real common Ribs in the United States, actually TEXAS! Hey we are like a whole other country. Well we were the Republic of Texas for a little while. Too Bad, we should have stayed ............... OK back to Ribs.
I was going to "Q" Sunday, but got side tracked. So what is a Texas (ZC)er to do? "Q" on Monday. What else? HA! What else indeed.
I like Pork Ribs, but I LOVE Beef Ribs. Yes, yes indeed!!! So I had three Racks of Ribs: two Beef (YES!!) and one Pork (yes?).
Next step: Lets talk about wood. Why wood? I am cooking on a propane grill, but I use a good old large cast iron wood chip box. Let me tell you good folks that cooking on propane grills, well it is just short of being better than broiling in the oven in my little old opinion. All you have to do is add a wood chip box to your propane grill and now ... now you have just made a Quantum Leap my Friends and Zero Carb Family yes you did, OK at least I did.
Smoke for the wood combined with the dripping fat hitting my Ceramic Briquettes and WOW you have a winning combination that would please any self respecting Texan. Now it is real important to get that wood box puffing smoke before adding the meat. Oh yeah the wood? Well did I use Mesquite or Hickory? Yes, yes I did or did I? Well there is no mystery I just combined them both. The result? Pure Heaven.
Enough already with the words Dave let some pictures do the talking why don't you? OK sure:

Montreal Seasoned Beef Ribs and Kansas City Pork Ribs. The combo wood chips soaking.
I cut the Ribs in half
I used a Rib Rack to put the halved Ribs (side view)
Staggered Ribs to get the most smoke possible (top view)
The end results, pure Heaven
A quick Snack. HA!
These babies were toasty on the outside and tender on the inside. The flavor from the mixed wood and the seasoning were out of this world. They tasted so good I would not bother to put BBQ sauce on them if I used that junk. Great BBQ does not need that glop on this work of art.
I saw a former coworker today that was visiting a retiring employee. He has not seen me in over a year. His first words "Hello Skinny". I know I shocked the hell out of him.
I am so looking forward to my three day weekend coming up. Saturday I will go to my brothers house to celebrate my niece's birthday. Sunday I will celebrate with my new friend and former Retreatant his welcoming ceremony to our church. He is converting to become a Catholic and is currently taking The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
Have a Great (ZC) Day my Friends and Zero Carb Family. Keep On Keeping On and Battle On!!!
(ZC) The Right Mix
