Some Beef Short Ribs on the Little Cooker
Another cook from my last camp trip. I love beef short ribs, and decided to take a plate of them to the lake with me. The weather was a bit "iffy" so I used my little charcoal cooker instead of the tractor rim.
I set the cooker up with the hot coals on each end and a drip pan in the center.
Slathered the ribs with bacon drippings and seasoned with cracked black pepper and coarse salt.
This was a nice meaty slab of ribs. I figured they would take around 6 hours.
I let the ribs cook on low and added more coals about every 30 minutes..
After 5 hours of cooking, I added a few tatoes.
Split the tatoes open, added a sliver of onion, a slice of bacon, salt and pepper and a dab of butter. The foiled and set them in to cook.
The ribs had the pull back on the bone that I wanted after about 6 hours of cooking.
I sliced one of the ribs off the end. Served with slaw and the tatoe..
Took what I thought was a HUGE bite....
...and quickly realized that I wasn't going to make it through this thing.
it turned into an all day rib. I wrapped it in a napkin and snacked on it the rest of the day. lol
It was SO tender, juicy and tasty though. Beef ribs just gotta be my favorite food on earth. lol
The weather has been pretty nice here lately. I've been spending as much time as possible outside. Spent yesterday afternoon at my favorite creek/hunting spot, saw plenty of wild life and enjoyed the fresh air. Didn't make it home in time to cook on the grill as I had planned last night but enjoyed the much needed outing. :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
