A good weekend for messing with a lot of meat. Hit up Sams club and got 3 racks of babyback ribs, and a PSMO beef tenderloin. I am pretty quick with breaking down a tenderloin primal and got 11 cuts out of it. We have started splitting 6-8 ounce filets and focusing more on the sides for our meals. The meat is more of a side dish actually.
The ribs were done in the 2-2-1 method and I do not think they were cooked enough. At least the rack I have shared with others and is not gone was not exactly falling off the bone. But they taste great. There was not enough room on the rack for the chickens I wanted to smoke, so they went on after the ribs. Did not grab any pics of the chickens, but I ended up finishing it off in the oven and it looks like it is going to be awesome. Spent the whole day smoking, but having tons of meat made it all worth it. Ended up having to raid my basement fridge for beers. it takes a lot of beer to smoke meat 😉
And finally we cleaned out our pantry. Found some strange stuff in there, combined a lot of duplicates, and got a bunch of tupperware back. It looks really bare in there right now, but should make it easier to find the cat. 😛
