So, I did smoke a couple chickens on the Fourth of July but it was so dag gone hot all I did was throw the birds on the smoker and go back out to take them off.

Because temps have been in the hundreds for what seem like a month. Today was the first day since moving into the new house that I could actually sit out on the deck with my Bride and enjoy being out there. We had family over for the first shindig in the new place so it was a good day.

Oh, did I not mention we moved a few weeks back, during the wicked storms and power outage? Yep, it was a 102 degree day the day we moved and the house we moved out of had lost power as did the house we moved into. Crazy. But a bunch of great friends from church and work came over on a miserably hot day and they themselves had no power and helped us move.

Anyway......smoked six spares today!


Used my big honking cutting board to bring in the spares. Love that thang!


I used three different kinds of sauces. This is a sauce from Pierce's Barbecue down near Williamsburg, Virginia. First time trying it on ribs.


This is Billy Bones Triple X Cherry Barbecue Sauce. First time I tried it.


And naked ribs or what is commonly called Trigg ribs.


Folks at church gave us some cucumbers out of the garden so my Honey made a cucumber salad.


My Honey making redskin smashed potatoes.


A full pot of corn on the cob cooking up.










When I pulled the ribs off I threw on some meatballs to put in the freezer for meatball subs or spaghetti. I hate to let all that good heat and flavor go to waste on such a short smoke as ribs.




And Boo made some chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Yum!

Folks enjoyed all the ribs but a large number really liked the Billy Bones Cherry ribs. They were good I think I will add them to the rotation would not want them ever time but dang good. There were no complaints at all. Nice to be in the new place and gettin' settled in. Hope everyone is doing well.

wow that all looks great. The cherry sauce has peaked my interest. Also from what I can tell from the pics you have a beautiful kitchen in the new house.

I love red potatoes that way. I like to leave them a little lumpy.

Glad to hear the move went well considering the heat and no power.

Great looking ribs and the spread is in your usual form JD.. You are a excellent host and I am sure every one enjoyed your efforts.

As always your spread of food looks delicious. Those ribs are outstanding.

Congrats on the new home. At first it looked like you had a custom built cutting board for a counter top. As serious a cooker/smoker you are, I wouldn't be surprised.

Good to see you are back at it again.

FANTASTIC! I cant wait to christen my new house properly also! Still bouncing between 104-110 here...bleh.

(Besides... I have yet to move my cookers.)

Gotta love having friends and a church that is willing to throw out their backs to help. It looks like a very happy ending!

I would think custom from a resto supplier.

Shocked Wow that is one big ole cutting board.

The ribs look really great (as does all the food), but I'm intrigued by that Triple X Cherry sauce. Did it give a lot of cherry flavor to the ribs. I'd like to try that one if I ever find it in my neck of the woods.

Congrats on the new house and hope that the rest of your summer is a little cooler. Down here in Dalls, 102 ain't anything unusual and to tell you the truth, its been a mild summer compared to last year. Wink

Like several above, been wondering where you've been. Ribs look great and that's the biggest cutting board I've ever seen. Works for me.

Looks good Dan, how far did you move? We moved off of 17 in Stafford a few months back. If that is the same cutting board that I have I got it at Gander Mountain, they are nice.
