OT: Comfort Food

Post by IronNoggin » Sun Apr 05, 2020 2:41 pm

Given the whirlwind of bad and worsening news of late, I decided it was past due to indulge one of my Lady's favorite food cravings...

Second last Russian Boar ham I had Pete's Mountain Meats (he does one hell of fine job!) turn into smoked hams for me.
Sirloin that is:

Sat on the counter most of the day defrosting:

Image

An hour and half in the clay baker at 325 degrees - House now smelling WONDERFUL!

Image

Choppy Whacky with juices running everywhere!

Image

Loaded up with the other goodies:

And Romantic Dinner for Two:

Normally I take the leftovers and make split pea soup. After chowing down, the decision was made NOT with this one!
Superb flavor, melt-in-your-mouth consistency (no need for the knife at all) means this will be another meal unto it's own in the next couple of days...

Cheers,
Nog

Foody minds think alike. No long ago my wife and I defrosted the freezer and found a wild boar ham from my Alberta hunt with Paulaboutform. After repacking the freezer the boar roast looked lonely at the top.

Yesterday, we both had the same satisfying stomach feeling that was best matched with a aged Australian red and wild game.

No leftovers :(
Cheers!

Wishing you two good health and better economic times sooner.

A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

Everyone has their own favorite when it comes to ribs.

Last night was Free Range Pig night, so here's mine:

Image

Take the rack of ribs, and cut into serving size portions.
Slice an orange into 1/4" slabs.
Place the orange slices on a sheet of tinfoil.
Put the ribs on top of the slices, fat side down.
Liberally apply your favorite spice.
Flip ribs and repeat.

Image

Wrap foil tightly, and toss in oven pre-heated to 400 for around an hour.
Remove from oven and take to BarBee still wrapped.

Previously set up your BarBee for smoking, and have decent smoke coming along before you put the ribs in there.
Remove foil and put into BarBee:

Image

Place ribs initially fat side down, and smoke on medium heat for around 10 minutes.

Image

Flip & Repeat:

Image

Remove to serving plates:

Image

Bon Apatite!


Image

This method when done correctly will produce the most tender, flavorful and most juicy ribs you will ever eat!

Cheers!
