Ok, I think I'm in the right place ~~>



HOT & FAST... Right ??

I'm testing out some different combinations of stuff for Saturday, my dad's Memorial service & BBQ feed...

The wife has been putting up all different kinds of jellies & came up with a real winner
( one among several, actually)

She got to a certain point & asked me what color it would come out if she added a bit of
green food coloring in...Not Sure, I say as it was kind of a light purple at that point...

Used mostly purple basil & with that addition, it turned a gorgeous rich rose color.......

Basil jelly ~~>



Ever since it was sitting on the table setting up, we've been talking about using it for a glaze
or something related on BBQ...

So ribs was what I thought ~~~>
1st a quick trim as the other ones that go on Saturday are St. Lou's
Then a fairly lite coating of granulated garlic ~~>



Then the JELLY !!



Tips in a small separate packet...



These are braized in foil, then crisped out of foil the last part of the cook , coals like so ~~>





Started @ 275 for 3/4 hr & then opened up the bottom vents most of the way to run up to
325 ~ 350 for an hour & 15 min. .....
They look pretty anemic at this point ~~>



Out of the foil with some fairly thin
baste / glaze saved out ~~>



After the 'Hot' hour, the coals are calmed enough to drop down to a steady 260
& it stayed there for another 45 -50 minutes, glazing every 8-10 minutes ~~~>



Let them go as the coals dropped 260 / 250 / 240 / down to 215 at about 3 hr- 45 min.

Looks done to me, 120 bend with no crack ~~~>
( Must be the jelly that makes 'em do that)







Result: Not too bad, but the basil taste didn't really come thru like I thought it might.....
the jelly is really fragrant

Kinda like those ribs you get at the Chinese buffet, only quite a bit more moist & tender
as they haven't sat in a steam pan for 6 hours...

Need to come up with a more densely flavored & thicker glaze to add to the ending part of the cook....

Hot & Fart (< typed that accidentally Embarassed ) worked OK, were plenty tender compared to slow cooked....

Couldn't have been too bad, as me & the dawgs ate all of them except that big one on the end.... Very Happy

My second time reading this post. Shocked

Those ribs actually look delicious!
Nice to see a variation of BBQ ribs.

Did you concoct some type of glaze with the "baste/glaze saved out",
or just use that stuff for the glaze?
Did you add any wood chunks after removing from the foil?
If not, I suppose that could be done, eh?
I'm guessing the ribs had a sweet flavour to them?
Lots of questions, huh? Confused Wink

I am now curious about giving this a try .... some time soon, I hope. Very Happy

Thanks for sharing, Ken. Cool

No, just poured carefully over a bunch of times, set in between....

"Did you add any wood chunks after removing from the foil?"

Naw, didn't want to upset the basil cart....

"If not, I suppose that could be done, eh?"

"I'm guessing the ribs had a sweet flavour to them?"

Yeah, like that sticky sweet / savory at the Chinese places....

"Lots of questions, huh?"

Well....Maybe.... Very Happy

Ya gotta make basil jelly 1st..... Razz
