Title: The price of FAME
Post by: Hopefull Romantic on October 15, 2009, 04:03:05 AM
Well some one spelled the beans about the smoked pork I made two weeks ago, so now I was "demanded" by six big guys to make some more and immediatly. But some eat pork and some do not so we decided on pork and lamb. So we went to buy the pork and I thought I bought three to be surprised that they were 5 BBRs instead and we bought 3 racks of lamb. So here they are:

Two racks of lamb with Jan's rub. (Thanks Jan and KN)

(http://i881.photobucket.com/albums/ac13/hopfull_romantic/DSC00206.jpg)
One rack of lamb with Jim's rub. (thanks Raye). This one is staying home. See the STAG party is at a friends house.

One BBR in Jan's Rub.

They shall all be cooked according to 10.5's instruction. Will be posting results.

HR!
Looks like your friends are going to have some yummy ribs in their future!
I love your pic with your dog sleeping on the couch and your computer logged into the forum!  :D
Squirt is right, don't leave the room, puppy might help himself!

hey Carolyn and Squirt,

I did not even notice that Zelda was in the picture. I did keep a close eye on her as she could be devious. That is our 10 months old doberman and the computer logged on the forum was purely coincidental.

That looks like a carload or ribs exploded in your kitchen.  Those lamb ribs look like they will be mighty tasty.  I haven't been able to find any for years and I'm sure missing them.  Saw some in a meat market in Texas a couple of weeks ago.  Should have shipped me some!

HR,
Tell Zelda I'm sorry for calling her a "him"  :D
Long ago I cooked a beautiful pork butt and my great dane Oobie pulled the whole thing off the counter when I went to answer the door.
He finished it right when I came back to the kitchen.  :'(

HR - Have you noticed yet that we only compete with photos (and you are pretty high on the winner's list).  Maybe we should get everyone together for an "International Smoke-Off"  around this time next year.  We can't meet halfway between Jordan and Hawaii (we'd get pretty wet) but we could always agree on somewhere near the east coast and lie about it being the midpoint.  We could ask Begolf to host - Yard & Pool has plenty of toys tools to use; all we'd have to bring is meat and appetites (and, oh yeah, cameras).

Post by: Hopefull Romantic on October 16, 2009, 01:54:53 AM
Okay all were ready and done around 8:15 PM local time. At 8:00 PM my door bell chimed and there were two armed Private security officers asking for me. They said they were here to escort me while transporting the "GOODS" to their destination in case I get attacked by a hungry animal or human and to make sure I dont change my mind and keep them all to myself. They were hired by my friends (dumb jerks gave me a scare there for a second or 60  ;D ;D). I barely could take these photos:

4 BBRs ready after my uncle took his share and so did my brother in law:

2 Racks of lamb ready for "Transport"
(http://i881.photobucket.com/albums/ac13/hopfull_romantic/DSC00211.jpg)

And yes, I made CRG's famous Red Lobster Biscuits too. Took the Garlic powder, butter and brush to my friend's house for the grand finale there

Well the result was, NOTHING LEFT.

HR,
OK, I'll be the first to ask.  Are you serious about your friends hiring private security guards to escort you?  If so, that is about the funniest story I've heard in a while.  If it's not true I fell for it anyhow.

The food all looks great.  I'm thinking you are rapdily becoming the most sought after chef in all of Amman Jordan.  Well done my friend, well done.

Did they transport you in an armored truck/black SUV?

KH has a very good point. HR has been accosted by 9 Jordanian women over smoked cheese and then 6 big Jordanian men threaten him over lamb and pork ribs and then force him at gunpoint to deliver the goods.

HR, just what the hell kind of people do you associate with over there? ;) :D

All in good fun HR.

That all looks great, cant say I have ever had lamb, it is a bit pricey around here.

I see your dog sleeps in the same place as my boxer, on the couch, and if you sit down next to her she snorts at you then gets up and goes to my room and sleeps on my bed with her head on the pillow.

Hey there KN, yes it is a true story and the two armed men showed up at my door in uniform side arm and all. My uncle was here to pick up his share and was worried that could be some thing else so he insisted to give me a ride where I was going and he did. When I got there, they escorted to the second floor where my friend lives had a taste, got paid and left. They were driving a black Honda SUV with the company logo on both side and they had those flashing (strobe) headlights. It was hilarious but the made me feel important for about the 20 minutes the whole thing took.

KY, KH is right and you are as well. We, in this forum are smoking almost every day and all sorts of food and still cant get enough. So what would you imagine other people to do when they hear about some one they know smoking meat or cheese. They go nuts and demand to have it and eat it with passion.


In my entire life I have never seen teeth scratches on bones, Last night I did. By the time they finished eating, the bones were so picked spic and span to a squeaky clean. point.
