6 Racks of Ribs
« on: May 06, 2010, 10:58:35 am »
This will be the biggest smoke I've ever done in my Bradley. Saturday I've got my brother and sister and their families coming over. I'll be smoking 6 racks of ribs. Got them sitting in the fridge now waiting for my rub to show up. It's due today. Hope it isn't late!!



Went out and bought a bunch of chips and dip, and some veggies for a veggie platter for snacks.

Also going to make some potato salad and creamette salad.

Here's the Recipes (This is the same potato salad I gave to OU812).

Potato Salad
Serves 25
10 lbs Potatoes
2 Large Onions Chopped
10 Hard boiled eggs
1 Green Pepper Chopped
1 Bunch Celery Chopped
2 Cups of French Dressing
1 Tablespoon Salt
2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 1/2 teaspoons Colemans Mustard

Creamette Macaroni Salad
Serves 16
6 cups Creamette Mostaccioli
2 2/3 cups Mayo
1 cup chopped celery
2/3 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
2 hard boiled eggs chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons Colemans Mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 dashes of Paprika

That's a load of ribs Kevin!  I know you'll knock them out of the park.  I'm doing 4 racks myself this weekend.

Good luck my friend and show us the results.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm RIBS !

Looks like a smokin weekend for everyone.

That tater salad taste better with the french dressin or the italian vinaigrette?

I like the ingredients in the Creamette Macaroni Salad, kinda what we were lookin for in my thread.

I couldn't find the Italian Vinaigrette at my local grocery store, so I went with the French Dressing. I tried it with the Vinaigrette a long time ago, but don't remember so good how different it was. I just got done making the potato salad - had to sneak a taste. Pretty darn good.

Here's the potato salad.

Looks good.

With the french dressin in there I would of thought it would have a orange tint.

Thats what I get for thinkin.

The orange gets kinda washed out by the large qty of potatoes and the green from the veggies.

I like onions, and it does show through on this potato salad, I use the white ones. If she doesn't like onions, maybe switch to a sweeter yellow onion, or cut back on it a little.

Onions in almost every thing I cook.

I do use the yellow ones in the tater salad but the girls still say to much.

Have been cuttin down but like you I like onions.

Green onion with my Bloody Mary, in place of the celery stick, Oh Ya.

Sometime if you feel adventurous try adding sweet peas to either a pasta or potato salad.  I prefer to use the frozen baby version and do nothing more than run hot tap water over them in a strainer to quickly thaw them out, then add directly.  Or, you can put them in a colander/strainer and pour the hot water from cooking the pasta / potatoes over them to thaw.  I think they go best with a pasta salad that uses a mayonnaise-based dressing.
I like animals, they taste good!

Yep.  You can hide fruits too - put in a blender, add ice, add rum, blend.  Makes it easy to get 5-6 fruit servings every day.  ;D  ;D  ;D

Ribs!  Heck Yeah!!!

Just make sure you allow plenty of time...
