NJ's Boneless or Country Style Ribs with Sauerkraut

Recommended Posts

I prefer a charcoal grill to a gas grill any day. Can't beat the flavor of charcoal.

True enough bud.

Unfortunately gas grills don't get hot enough for a nice Sear.

I bought the Joe Namath cooker, kind of like a commercial broiler that fires from the top and it does a steak like a mother fucker.

True charcoal can be ideal but some gas grills are better than others, note some are ads, also check sites like CR:

I still prefer them now and have for years now because we often grill-eat when my wife gets home from work or just when we feel like it including the dead of winter.

If you're just an occasional griller you might get by with discount grills but if you cook all summer or more it pays to go for quality like Weber or others.

OH BTW we got two Weber grilling cookbooks as gifts the one was maybe the best information I've ever seen in one book, I'll have to dig it out, I think it was about 300 pages (+/-) on grilling almost anything.

.....I just Googled real quick and saw 15 Weber grilling books, I'll have to dig mine out. (And we have to get our friends to cool it with the cookbooks! But they love to eat here.)

I buy most all of my books used good to excellent condition on Amazon Prime. ;)

Oh I looked up my two original WEBER'S cookbooks, one big hardback and the same in a big heavy paperback c. 2005, WEBER'S REAL GRILLING by Jamie Purviance , 304 pages.

 

Good reading and cooking. :)

Oh talking with my wife on the kraut again, some people put brown sugar in it, some apples (why?) and others some other things like ketchup.....really?

I'm more on the traditional side with mine but I like my onions, cooked down of course, but no caraway seeds.

Now on pork roast and sauerkraut potatoes, carrots, onions are all good. :)

Anyone try out any sauerkraut dishes lately? I'm curious to know how they turned out.

Were having kielbasa (fresh/easter kielbasa) with saurkraut, pierogi's and some kind of vegetable tomorrow. First sear the kielbasa, the put in a baking dish with the drained and rinsed saurkraut with some kind of seasoning (not sure what she uses) bake until done.

 

Oh yea, onions are mixed with the kraut I know that for sure.

Sounds good! Yeah dutch ovens or layered into baking dishes are all good, just keep an eye on it when the sauerkraut gets very slightly brown on top and the keilbassi is really warmed through....ummmm!

 

Plus I love the leftovers, keilbassi or hot dogs on a big sausage bun with saurkraut, yellow mustard and a nice splash of Tabasco....oh yeah.

Oh we're having NY Strip steaks tonight on the grill, baked potatoes with sour cream and butter, grilled asparagus and I'll have a Sam Adams Boston Lager wife has wine. (steaks and asparagus on sale, potatoes basically "dirt" cheap)

The grilling life. :)

Oh we had some nice NY Strip yesterday (on sale!) but my favorites are rib eyes or porterhouse, baked potatoes, spinach doctored up by the wife and a Sam Adams Boston Lager....oh yeah.

 

Tomorrow is Easter dinner, a friend coming over. Hope you all enjoy your dinners too. ;)

That's what it looks like I had in Kansas City just a couple of weeks ago. So, I don't know, more like a proper Kansas...err. or Missouri meal.

A lot of people and states claim to have the best barbecue and fixings, now that would be an interesting tour!

 

Many down South but how about one from every state. https://www.thrillist.com/eat/nation/best-bbq-restaurants-in-the-usa

Joe's BBQ in Kansas City, Kansas, which is on this list, is where I just ate. I know I will be going through the Mattapan Mass area in a couple of months.

 

South Carolina likes their BBQ sauce with a mustard base.

Geezzzz you're making me hungry for some good BBQ ribs and other fixin's. We generally do that on the grill in warmer weather -but- occasionally get carry out.

 

I also like those grilling shows on PBS many which show either backyard cooking or the real meals on the butcher paper with the works.

From the every state list......

 

OHIO

Mabel's BBQ (Address and Info)

CLEVELAND

The deal: There was a mixture of excitement and skepticism when it was announced that celeb chef and Cleveland institution Michael Symon was getting into the barbecue game repping "Cleveland-style" barbecue (is that a thing? We're not sure that's a thing?). But in the end, Symon knows his meat, and for an upscale-ish northern barbecue joint to win Texas barbecue authority and Ohio-native Daniel Vaughn's seal of approval, you know it's doing something right.

 

The move: So about that Cleveland style. Symon's not trying to create a barbecue tradition out of whole cloth here -- much is borrowed from the great American barbecue styles, with tweaks and wrinkles to provide just a little more of a Cleveland tie-in. Think Bertman's Ballpark Mustard in the brisket smoked over local apple and cherry woods, and pastrami spices on the intimidatingly large beef short ribs. You should sample some of both, and some of the sauerkraut that comes on the side. It works. This Cleveland 'cue thing just might work out.

It is right there next to Symon's other restarurant's on East 4th St.

Super, yes. I just had some BBQ at a place here yesterday...and it was not so good. Tough, chewy meat. There are supposed to be much better places around here. (Akron/Canton)

And why generally better or the best ribs cost more, good meat cooked right.

Well MJ, I bought a smoker. Lowes had Oklahoma Joes smokers on sale for $199.00. Regular $399.00 https://www.lowes.com/pd/Oklahoma-Joe-s-Highland-879-sq-in-Black-Charcoal-Horizontal-Smoker/50329703 $399 was a steal because they are made so well. Thick steel and very heavy duty. The grates are coated with non stick so they do not rust. I made a pork roast 4 of July but I rushed the cooking with a fire too hot and I used mostly oak in the fire box. The roast did not turn out as I had hoped.

 

Next time Im planning to do a brisket with mostly charcoal because it burns much cleaner. What do you think?

Low and slow.

 

I had a friend with a BBQ joint that BBQ his corned beef and roast beef for 20+ hours. Unbelievably good.

Why do you care....since you are happy you missed me? Besides, I mentioned where just above. And since when did you live in Kansas City? I thought you were in New England somewhere?

It was a joke.

 

I have lived in Shawnee Kansas since 1996. Moved here with a job living in Atlanta, Georgia. I was born in Massachusetts and like Cleveland fans, Im a fan of the home Pro teams for life.

 

I know that you went to Joes which BTW there are much better places. What was the other place?

OK, didn't know you live there. Joe's was super....and I did some checking...and many sites said that Joe's was the best in town....so that is why I went there. So, I don't know....I guess a lot of your neighbor's opinions vary from yours.

I did not go to any other BBQ place in the KC area. I above referred to a chain that has an outlet here in the Akron area called Old Carolina....and it was, quite frankly, pretty bad. The meat was tough and gristly. So, I don't plan to go back. I have been referred to some other place in Canton that is supposed to be good that Westside Steve ...and other friends referred me to. (don't recall the name off the top of my head). So I may get there.

Now you are making me hungry for ribs. :)

Did you notice Joes food overly salty? They drown their french fries in salt and dont spare any sodium on the BBQ either. I prefer to add my own seasoning if I want it on there and 99% of the time I add nothing because I want to taste the meat.

 

Arthur Bryants on Brooklyn st in KCMO is a must if you come back, Its the original location. Its best to order the BBQ to go with no sauce. Their original sauce is bitter IMO, but they have 2 other sauces that are good - spicy and a sweet mixture. They wrap the whole meal up in butchers paper so if you cant finish, just wrap it back and leave. Its a lot of food. They give you enough BBQ and bread to make 3 or 4 big sandwiches. Never had their ribs but Im sure theyre great.

 

Rosedales - had their ribs and theyre great. Blue collar place and the best bang for your buck. Some will tell you its the best in KC.

Slaps - New and their sauces are so good that Heinz is bottling one of them and selling them in grocery stores nation wide. Hole in the wall with good food.

Q39 - More upscale. Spicy BBQ and they just won an award in KC.

Char Bar - Nice atmosphere, good food. Gourmet BBQ. Burnt Heaven sandwich is must try, but its all good.

OK, thanks....but I don't know when I will ever be back...though at some point I may stay in Missouri in the Lake Ozark area, or be down near Joplin, but not up by KC.

You're still making me hungry.
