    The Smoking and BBQ thread

    No, but like I said, it's just 'a rub' I like, not holding it up as any kind of traditional standard. I don't actually like any sweetness in rubs or sauce, even on pork. I always leave sugar out of rubs and go for a mustard/vinegar sauce.

    I do a really simple 1:1:1 paprika, cumin, garlic powder.

    Take A Pic Of Your Dinner!

    Good slug of marsala, a knob of butter, and a dollop of sour cream in the pan with that lot and you'd have had a cracking sauce to go with it.

    Mcdonalds Breakfast ( Sausage & Egg ) Muffin

    Important notice. The newish McDonalds touch ordering things let you customise your order. I may have had a sextuple sausage and egg muffin on Monday. Sadly you can't add more cheese, it's on/off only.

    I'm really surprised. 5-6 hours at 225-250 is usually perfect for me for short ribs. Any idea what temp you pulled them off at?

    Did you take the silverskin off the top of the rib? If you don't, cooking it will just turn it into a chewy jelly slab that'll never render down.

    Did our annual 'BBQ for a lot of people' at the weekend, this time with significantly more prep. We did brisket (36-hour sous-vide then 4 hour smoke), pork shoulder, mutton shoulder, short ribs, pork belly burnt ends, stuffed jalapeños, homemade beans, and sausages. It didn't suck. The pork shoulder we cooked the day before, and it took 16 hours. Man we were hammered when that came off the BBQ at 3am.

    The one i helped a mate build is at the bottom of p14. We used 3mm mild steel for the lid and door. It's not exactly airtight but we managed to maintain a bang on smoking temp for 14 hours so it's definitely good enough. Lid is quite simply a box, hinged at the back, with a broom stick and a couple of angle brackets for a handle.

    Who plays this and doesn't call the Captain "Captain"?

    Star Trek Bridge Crew VR

    Engineer role is far from boring, it's frantic as fuck. Sure, you could leave everything on default settings, and not bother doing any of the repairs, but MY FUCKING CONSOLE IS ON FIRE ENGINEERING, FIX IT. I would say that anyone trying to do this solo not bother, it's impossible to direct the AI via the captain's commands with any sort of speed, but for group play it's an absolute dream. Actual goddamned Klingons off the starboard bow!

    OMG. Had two friends still up at midnight and we ran through the first mission (PS4). It's just perfect. It's everything VR should be and everything co-op should be. We were flying a spaceship.

    Portabello Fries - suggestions?

    Dust them with paprika, then make guac for a dip.

    Went to bed at 4:30am last night because I just couldn't stop. Factorio is dangerously compelling. I love it so much and encourage everyone to get it to share this burden.
