    Any plans for this weekend?

    We're on a tablitas kick right now. They go by several names, but they're cross-cut ribs. Available at your local Hispanic market, they're cheap and delicous!

    When grilling, I get super tired of people asking me when the food will be ready. The solution? Pick up several pounds of these bad boys. They cook super quick, so throw them on the grill first, and nobody will mess with you while you prepare the rest of the meal because they'll be too busy scarfing these down.

    We plan on spending Friday and Saturday at the in-law's pool, so I bought ten pounds for us to throw on the grill anytime we need a break.

    What about you? Trying anything new?

    I have a love-hate relationship with those. I love them, but they hate me.

    I have a couple of things like that... good on you for avoiding them... we get them uncooked and I toss them in the smoker for a couple of hours... YUM.

    some marinara sauces just destroy me.

    have no idea. briskets are currently outrageously expensive, the ribs (at all stores) were the most pathetic things i've ever seen, and not a pork loin to be found. i'd be happy with grilled chicken, BBQ beans, potato salad, and cold Leatherback by the pool. but chicken's been vetoed. i could replace the chicken with brats or burgers and still be happy

    I'm looking forward to grilling this weekend but have to admit, I grill twice a week all ready. Kabobs are common. I did buy some Nathans franks and I might still buy some brats or Italian sausage. We haven't grilled/consumed those things in a long time. We will be staying home and not mingling, if you know what I mean. Have a good time.

    Ribs on the smoker now.

    Chicken tomorrow, steaks Saturday. Maybe a salmon filet Sunday.

    That looks exciting. You just showed a 69 year old man something new. Never heard of those things, that's beef, right?

    Not hanging out with a bunch of people, that's for sure.

    Not sure what the wife and I will grill. Salmon? Yeah, that sounds good!

    Venison is always good! Cajun J!

    Yea man! I’ll post pictures. Going on the smoker for a couple hours the finishing off in the oven to keep moisture in.

    Yes sir they are beef. They’re a little bit of pain to eat with the the bones and everything but that’s what makes them great appetizers. Tasty and they take you a little time to eat.

    I got started early and just grilled some chicken thighs- just some rub seasonings- delicious! I'd like to find some of those cross-cut beef ribs- sounds yummy!

    Same here. My daughter may come over with the two little ones so we may do burgers and dogs.

    No tengo una parrilla aquí, solo una estufa para tacos, frijoles refritos y arroz mexicano.


    Er... I don't have a grill (my lil' smokey got stolen years ago). So I'm going to make a big mess of tacos, refried beans and Mexican rice all by myself. And then I'll eat it all by myself, over several days.

    By taco I mean beef, onion, cilantro and lime squeezings in a pair of corn tortillas.


    No parties or social gatherings for me this year. :-| Guess I'll just work on my programming skills.

    A fellow player from Funkytown!

    Tablitas are awesome! Taste amazing and they’re nigh impossible to overcook.

    Oh, and Zoo Music is open again on the west side.
