  • We will be doing this cook on the Daniel Boone Grill from Green Mountain Grills. We start with a large spare rib. There is actually two and I bought them at our local market for $13 a piece.
  • First step is we need to square up the ribs by doing a St. Louis cut. First I find the end of the ribs and make a shallow cut. Using the knife you keep making deeper cuts till you cut all the way through. What you want is as close to a rectangle as possible with both sides parallel with each other. Now do not throw away and of the extra meat. That meat makes fantastic rib meat tacos or pork shepherd's pie.
  • Now with everything squared up you can now trim the flap meat that sits on top. These ribs had the membrane already removed but if the membrane is present it needs to be removed.
  • Repeat the same procedure on the second rack of ribs and then put both racks into a full-size foil pan.
  • Now it is time for the rub. On this cook, I am using the Everything Rub for Loot N Booty. It is a great pork rub but like they say it is good on everything, On these ribs, you need to use a lot of rub and you need to cover every inch. One reason why I use a foil pan is first I do not want to make a mess but second I do not waste any rub.
  • In a preheated grill set at 225F put ribs directly on the grate.
  • Now cook for 3 hours.
  • Remove ribs and place in to the same full size foil pan from before. I use a foil pan so I can put the sauce on right away and do have to worry about foil wrap messing up my sauce. The glazing sauce we are using is Southwest Sweet Heat BBQ sauce. Apply sauce to the top side of the ribs. I usually put two coats but just on top. Leaving one side dry make is a lot easier to handle the ribs and with two coats you have plenty of sauce and glaze.
  • Now this part is very important. You need to use a new lid. You then put the lid on and make sure that it Is completely sealed. The pan has to be airtight. By being airtight the ribs will not dry out and even more important the sauce will not burn.
  • Now it is back to the 225F grill to cook for 2 more hours.
  • Then remove lid and let ribs sit uncovered but still in pan for 1 more hour. Check at 30 minutes to make sure the sauce does not burn. After the final hour pull ribs for grill.
  • So this is how they should look. You want that dark mahogany color and the glaze should firm and not runny. When you cut the ribs the meat should stay together and the cuts should look very clean. No mushy ribs. As you can see as I cut the ribs they cut real clean and have a great smoke ring. Also the glaze is staying on the ribs and not getting all over the cutting board.
  • As you can see the ribs are firm, have a clean cut and have a great smoke ring. Also the glaze is staying on the ribs and not getting all over the cutting board. This method will give you perfect ribs every time.

Instructions

  • I was having a small group of people over so I got two chicken packs for a total of 17 drumsticks.
  • There is some work involved so I took both packs and combined them into one foil pan that will also be the cooking container.
  • Safety first I always wear disposable kitchen gloves when I handle raw chicken. The first step is to make a complete cut around the leg about one inch from the knuckle.
  • There are some tendons so make sure you cut all the way through. Now pull the meat and the skin together and away from the knuckle. Using kitchen scissors trim the tenons away from the meat.
  • Now the last part of making this chicken look like a lollipop id remove the joint from the knuckle. With a small and sharp knife get under the joint and cut it away from the knuckle. This usually takes two to three cuts before you can remove the complete joint. As you see this takes some time and you need to be careful.
  • Next thing is to add the Gold Star Chicken rub. This is now my goto rub for most chicken recipes. Make sure you cover every inch of the meat and skin.
  • Get a measuring cup that can handle being in the microwave. Get one stick of unsalted butter and put into the cup. Now off to the microwave using the melt butter mode or on low power. You do not want to overcook the butter.
  • Pour melted butter into the bottom of the pan. Be very care for you want to add the butter to the bottom of the pan without getting butter on the skin of the chicken.
  • Put chicken into a 325F preheat grill like the Daniel Boone. And if you do have a Daniel Bone grill with Wifi you can program the grill to do the complete cook from this point on.
  • What you see is a profile that I set up for this cook. There are two steps to the profile and both are based on reaching a temperature. Step one is running the grill at 325F.
  • Stay at this grill temperature till the meat probe hits 165F.
  • At that point, we go to step two which will increase the grill temperature to 400F.
  • Will maintain that grill temperature till the meat probe reaches 185F. At that point, the grill will shut itself off.
  • What we are looking Is the beginning of step two where put foil on the knuckles and add a glaze to the chicken.
  • The glaze is Southwest Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce. This sauce is a very balanced sweet sauce but with a kick of heat at the end.
  • I let the lollipops rest for about 5 minutes. The lollipops had a great color and were well cooked. The skin was completely rendered and you could easily bite through. But the best part was the taste. Between the rub and the glaze, these lollipops were flavor bombs.

Instructions

  • Will be using the Green Mountain Grill Daniel Boone Grill and the cook is Pulled Pork with Big Bob Gibson White BBQ Sauce. We will start with my favorite rub and that is SPG. 1/2 cup of Kosher or Sea Salt.
    salt
  • 1/2 cup of Coarse Black Pepper.
    black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of Granulated Garlic.
    garlic
  • Mix Well.
    mix well
  • Apply Rub. When applying the rub the salt will dissolve into the meat. This action is actually what we call a dry brine and will make the roast hold moister and even help make it more tender. If you have the time let the roast sit for 4 hours in the refrigerator uncovered before we take it to the grill.
    apply rub
  • This next step is optional, but I think by spraying a vegetable oil on the rub it will keep the rub in place and also allow the outside of the roast to develop a better bark.
    spray oil
  • Pre-heat grill to 275F.
    pre heat 275F
  • Place pork butt in the middle of the grate and insert meat temperature probes.
    butt in grill
  • When pork butt is at 160F internal temperature it is time to foil the roast.
    160F
  • Add 1/2 cup of Apple Juice to the pan.

  • Seal foil around pan.
  • Remove Blade Bone with one hand. If it requires two hands then cook or rest longer.
  • Shred pork until pork is the right size for sandwiches.
  • here is the chart showing each part of the cook.
  • Add 1/2 cup of Big Bob Gipson White BBW Sauce.
  • Make a sandwich on a roll or bun with about 50 percent pork to 50 percent coleslaw.

Instructions

  • When cooking thighs for competition or just having the neighbors over the skin can either make or break the cook. If undercooked the skin is rubbery and if burnt well it is burnt. You can see as I prepare these thighs I pull the skin back over the meat and get rid of any folds or gaps.
    chicken thighs
  • We will be applying two seasonings. The first is Adobo with pepper. The adobo seasoning first ingredient is salt and we want to make sure the chicken skin is fully covered.
    adobo seasoning chicken thighs
  • The second seasoning is garlic jalapeno and has a bite so add based on your tolerance to spicy foods.
    garlic jalapeno chicken thighs
  • Now it is off to the refrigerator to sit uncovered for 6 hours.
    in refrigerator
  • Get a Frogmat and position the thighs evenly on the mat. The reason the chicken sat for six hour is the salt acted as a dry brine and also dried the chicken skin.
    frogmat
  • Now it is off to the 425F preheated Daniel Boone Grill. Position the chicken right in the middle of the grate.
    preheat 425F
  • After 30 minutes start checking for doneness. The minimum temperature has to be 165F. I usually pull the chicken when all pieces are at least 170F to 175F.
    check temperature
  • The chicken is done. The skin is crisp and not rubbery and it is also a nice golden brown. Now some observations about the Daniel Boone Grill. It held the 425F temperature extremely well. Also the chicken cooked very evenly meaning there no hot or cools spots inside the chamber. For this hot and fast cook I give it very high marks.
    remove chicken
  • Now on to the finished chicken.
    prepare to cut chicken
  • The skin was crisp and the meat was cooked through but very juicy. The adobo with garlic gave it a lot of extra flavor and the jalapeno gave it a nice kick. Here I just eat the skin and it was really good.
    eat skin
  • Overall I gave it one big thumbs up.
    thumbs up
  • As I just keep on eating let close with the three things that made this a great cook. Great seasoning and drying the skin in the refrigerator. Cooking hot at 425F and last a great grill like the Daniel Boone.
