My guess is not two sauces, but two flavor profiles; the blackening and carmelization from the slow-cooking, and a basting or marinade along with it.

I bet that was juicy and just fell off the bone...

Maybe it's a Northern thing because I have no idea what's going on with that bird. Two different BBQ sauces?
After I take it off the grill I squirt a heavy layer of my homemade BBQ sauce over the bird. That's just what I like to do. I like the fresh layer of sauce right after I take it off the grill. It was so tender and juicy and I make a North Carolina BBQ sauce which has a lot of vinegar in it. Its spicy, its sweet, and has the vinegar bite.

I haven't been to Texas Road House in a long time but it wasn't that bad last time I went.

I just put a full rack of ribs on the smoker, getting ready for dinner.

I went to TRH on Saturday night. I go there maybe once every other month or so. I've never had a complaint. It's not as good as a high quality steakhouse somewhere, but for a place that doesn't cost a whole lot more than a Chili's, I think it's really freaking good.

Never heard of this place, but turns it out's from Kentucky, so no wonder. In any case it seems to just be a Black Eyed Pea rebranded with a cheesy Texas theme. Pro-tip: line dancing isn't really a thing, and peanuts were replaced by tortilla chips back around the time of Bonnie and Clyde.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Lol.  We cooked orzo, then cut parsley, tomatoes and feta cheese.   You take olive oil and red wine vinegar,  salt and pepper, lemon juice and lemon rind.

I am seriously craving Cheesecake, which is weird since I don't even really like cheesecake, but at the same time I think it might be time to start. I feel like I need to go to cheesecake factory and straiten my life out.

Make your own!  There are a couple good recipes on-line; I went and got "individual" spring-form pans and so I make about five individual ones.   The only trick is the baking time (for my pans, with my recipe, it's about 45 minutes).

Looks awesome

This is from a couple weeks ago when I got some good BBQ in Colorado Springs with my boss



Pulled pork, baby back ribs, sausage, moist brisket and lean brisket.  About 3 pounds of meat for us to split with a couple sides.

Mrs. P wanted me to grill up steaks last night. It's getting toward the end of the grilling season around here and I wanted to make the dinner memorable. That's when I thought it might be fun to have a nice demi-glace to serve with the steaks and for a sauce when sauteing mushrooms. The only problem was i didn't have 10 hours to spare nor the requisite veal bones and trimmings or for that matter beef bones. So I kinda winged it with pretty damned good results, if I do say so myself.

First a made a roux of clarified butter, mirepoix and flour that I cooked until it was toasty brown. I whisked in 3 cups of unsalted beef stock (store bought), brought it to a boil, lowered the heat, threw in a cheesecloth spice bag (with thyme, peppercorns, parsley and a bay leaf) and let it reduce for a half-hour or so. Then I strained the concoction through cheese cloth, returned it to the pot with the spice bag and an additional 2 cups of beef stock and again simmered it until it was reduced by half.

No salt.

It worked fantastic and tasted perfect, but didn't have the body and texture of true demi-glace. Still, it only took about 3 hours total which is a great time saver.

Just thought I'd share in case anyone could use the tip.

I'm picking up a 13 pound rib roast from the butcher today. I'm going to dry age it for a week in preparation for our family Holiday party next Wednesday. My plan is to rinse it and dry it as well as I can and then wrap it in cheese cloth before putting it my fridge's meat drawer that I've lowered to 32 F. I'll unwrap and rewrap it in cheese cloth every day until Wednesday when I'll give it a spice rub prior to cooking.

Have any of you done this? If so, any tips that you've developed to help me insure success?

So the dry aging worked out beautifully! After a week on a rack in the fridge it looked pretty scary and smelled really strong of raw meat. Like a ten foot diameter cloud.  :lol

I carefully sliced off the grossness to expose the good meat and it took surprisingly little to make it look appetizing again. A couple of hours at room temperature with the spice rub on it, and roasted to 130 F in the center and it was perfect! The dry aging really intensified the beef flavor so I'm very pleased with how it came out.

I only took one picture but I think Mrs. P took a bunch during each phase of the process so I'll share them later if anyone is interested.
