Simple night, just a few racks of ribs, sweet potatoes and beans. Two racks where rubbed with a mustard glue and plow boys the other I used a balsamic apple glaze and plow boys. Also added a few extras to the beans and sweet potatoes and onto the mak.
You learn something everyday on this site. What I learned today is that judging is harder than cooking.
I must say that until I found Big Pappa's I had no idea what cooks can accomplish, pellet smoking! Every time I visit the site the bar is raised even higher.
All of the submissions are award worthy!
1st place goes to, NorCal Smoker's Rack of lamb with artichoke, potatoes, and fresh tomato basil salad.
2nd place goes to, Wneil20's Whole deboned stuffed chicken.
3rd place goes to, Tatonka 3H2's Pork brined stuffed pork loin.
The balsamic whiskey glaze with the Wee Willy's Whiskey Pepper and no sauce was not a show quality looking rib but the taste was excellent in my opinion. Great eat at home ribs but not for competition standards. I will double check and taste test for supper again tonight!
