I don't always use the "Texas Crutch" while cooking ribs but I thought I would do it today and show you guys the pics. The "Crutch" steams the ribs in apple juice, honey, Tiger Sauce, brown sugar and butter giving them a contest winning edge on ribs that aren't crutched.

BTW, I know someone's going to ask so, yes, I did put rub on the ribs before grilling. I used Bone Sucking Sauce Rib Rub. Picked it up last time I was buying Bone Sucking Sauce BBQ Sauce because the BBQ Sauce is really good and I wondered how good the rub would be. Amy and I tried a scrap that was ready and the rub flavor is really good. Salty, sugary, spicy all in a good balance. We like it. Time for the "Texas Crutch".

Johnny Trigg, the godfather of ribs, uses this method. He uses squeeze Parkay but I had "I can't believe it's not butter" so I'm using that instead. Regular butter would work as well.

To use the "Crutch", you smoke/grill the ribs for 2 hours (baby back) or 3 hours (spare ribs). Then you lay out the tinfoil. Squeeze or brush butter on the foil, dust with brown sugar, drizzle some honey and some Tiger Sauce on the foil and spray with apple juice (or just pour 1/8th of a cup on). Place the ribs meat side down and repeat the steps on the back side of the ribs. Wrap the ribs up tightly in the foil, flip and wrap tightly in another piece of foil. Return to grill for another 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Remove the foil after this and put the ribs back on the grill for another hour or until they are ready (I use the bend test. First I look at the ribs to see if the meat has pulled back a bit from the bones and does the rib look "done"? If so, I pick up the rib by one end and see how it bends. If the meat cracks and seems about to break, it's done. If it falls apart, it's overdone.

Happy grilling and thanks to Johnny Trigg for this award winning recipe!

I'm not a sweet potato fan but the potatoes were gooood. The lime and cilantro balances out the sweetness and wakes them up.

Local I always go to Thuringers Meats in Arlington Heights, in Wisconsin I go to Wilson Farm Meats in Elkhorn.

Either way...I use a Masterbuilt electric smoker with AMAZEN pellets.

Ribs and chicken rocked yesterday!

Getting smoker up to temp. Ribs prepped and rubbed

Finishing ribs on grill. I use the 3-2-1 method, but usually only let em sit on the grill for 20 or so minutes while I sauce em up.

I've done this chicken so many times now so it's like clockwork and always comes out perfect. I find thighs work best...

What temp do you put them on the grill? I've been doing the 3-2-1 method, but haven't tried finishing them on the grill.

What temp is the grill or the meat?

The meat won't take on any more smoke flavor after the first few hours so there is no need to put em back in the smoker after they come out of the foil.

Nothing really special. I make a rub that consists of brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt, ground pepper, crushed red pepper, cayenne powder, and oregano. I use applewood and hickory wood to smoke them. You wanna smoke chicken at a higher temp (275*) to keep it as crisp as possible.

It's just chicken, but damn is it tasty. It's probably my favorite thing to smoke cause it's so quick and easy. Only takes around 2.5 hours.

Also...you should try chicken wings. I do them for about 1.5 - 2 hours in the smoker at 275, then do a quick 4 or 5 minutes on the grill at 450 just to give the outside a quick "crisp"....friggen taste amazing and easy as hell to do.

Real low...200-225 so usually only have the center burner going. Gotta make sure to not boil off the juice you put in the foil or the sugar will crystallize.

Amy went to see Bad Moms with her friends and brought them home for burgers and hot dogs.

I was cleaning the Weber and noticed my flavorizer bars are finally rusting on me. Mostly my fault because it's out in the weather and I don't cover it. $40 on Amazon for a new set.
