View Full Version : Ribs for the weekend

10-24-2008, 08:12 AM
Got the smoker fired up this morning for 36 slabs for a Fall Festival tomorrow. Nothing like pecan smoke early in the morning. Pulled 14 butts last night and they were awesome! Lots of work for a 1 day event, but well worth it when you see the smiling faces lining up for lunch :msn-wink: Will be frying taters and onions on site in a 4' diameter skillet this year which should draw in the crowds. Will try to post some pics later.:cheers2:

:whathesaid:I got to see that, how much freakin oil is in that thing?

Sounds like a crap load of Q. Take a pic of the pit loaded up with those ribs man. That has to look impressive!!!

Here is a few pics from the cook. Weather was perfect and long lines of hungry people. Sold out of everything.

Did you make the skillet?

All the food looked great!

:stir:No I didnt make the skillet. Another team member found it listed foe sale and bought it. We are gonna try to build another one during the winter break. It is a real conversation starter :msn-wink: Everybody had questions and had to see it in action. We cooked a dish we call Firehouse Skillet in it that consisted of 60 pounds of potatos, 5 pounds onions, lots of fresh garlic, 3 gallons green beans, 3 gallons corn, and 12 pounds of smoked sausage. It was a big hit, sold out of that before the pork was gone.

What do you have under it holding the coals?

Now that would draw the crowds!! Including me:thumbs up:

Looks like you all did real well!!!

I wanted to know what was in the pit in the 1 photo, lower right hand side? Look interesting and *****.

I can't let my wife see that skillet.....the 10 inch leaves enough of a bump on my head. A 4 ft. would likely kill me!:smack:

The coals are sitting on a cuban cooker box we use to roast chicken in. It is designed to be a pig roaster. Here is the link to the site we got it from:http://www.lacajachina.com
This would be very easy to make on your own. Nothing but plywood lined with 26 ga sheetmetal.
Here is another link to basicly the same set-up only the Cadillac version

The 1st smoker pic has ABTs in the bottom right shelf, or should I say what few are left :eating: I dont think its possible to make enough of those at 1 time
