I love how some of the bones weren't just blackened, but almost have this grey-whitish look like they've almost been bleached by too much fire.  Weaz, we've all screwed up food on the grill, myself too many times to count, but you at least have the distinction of having burnt ribs to a level of comedy and then having the good sense to upload a picture of it!   ;D

I'm still not sure how a charcoal bullet smoker could have gotten away from you like that...they can have temperature spikes but dang that thing must have been a kiln for a while!  I do most of my ribs on a plain old Weber kettle now, though I do have a Weber Smokey Mountain bullet.  The kettle is just the tool I have the most familiarity with, it feels like a trusty tool to me by now and I'm rarely surprised by it, which is a good thing!

The subject line made me think back to that epic rib pic you posted on the other forum Weaz!  I've made some bad ribs...no, MANY bad slabs of ribs...but your pic was awesome.  Those ribs looked like they were at at ground zero of the trinity testing site.

  That was pretty epic. I just had to repost, for a laugh. And I'll never forget the conversation I had with my buddy about them when we pulled them off.
   
Me : " I'm really upset. That was my dinner"
Buddy " I'm a black dude from Mississppi. How do you think I feel?!"

  Fired up the bullet smoker (my first time using) Put in about 15 bricks of charcoal. My temp was only 200* or so. I added 5 more bircks. Temp was still low, so I added 5 bricks. Repeat this process, then walk away for an hour. Your smoker tends to hit 250* real fast! Try about 450-500* It was ugly...... :-[

I woulda guessed someone painted them with sauce at the beginning...  and then walked away for 7 hours.  ;D

Some friends of mine and I have been experimenting with cooking on newly emplaced lava.  It is pretty challenging.  We've burned up a lot of food that way, but we're getting the hang of it.  (cooking with 1500F)

I imagine we'll see some pics of that soon?

Sad thing is, I bet he'll never burn a rack of ribs on lava, as bad as I did on a bullet. Looking at that pic, and a few of the comments made, I am seriously LMFAO! It sucks being stupid sometimes, but damn is it a fun ride!!  ;D

Damn.  I looked at this on my phone earlier and they didn't look all that bad.  Now on a real screen I feel like I'm checking out a corpse.

How do you like your ribs?  Cremated!

Smoking and grilling is an area I have little expertise in.  I would avoid attempting to smoke a pig; leave that to the experts.

I have a friend that is a masterchef in his own kitchen, despite no formal training.  I might buy him a cast iron grill in exchange for grilling instruction, since he's dirt poor.  He grills whole turkeys for thanksgiving and they come out good.  Hell, he grills pizza?!

I have no clue wtf these are but I want some.



Burgers and baked beans, mmm.

I would love to be as proficient grilling as I am with sushi.

One summer I decide I was going to learn how to barbeque, so I cooked on my grill every night for several months..  I ate a lot of raw food, burnt food, burned on the outside - raw on the inside food.  But, by the end of the summer I had gotten pretty good at it.  So much so that I cooked a turkey for ten on the grill forThanksgiving that year.

I was young and single back then so I was the only one who had to eat the boo boos.

There was no interweb or FoodTV back then so I had no help on that front.  I did have a good time getting it all figured out though.

And that truly is how we learn... Even with the "Interwebs" & "FoodTV" it still takes hands-on experience to do this Cookin' & Brewin' thing we do. Cheers!!!
