One large can of sauerkraut (more if desired for leftovers ), drain and rinse in water, squeeze dry

 

Add sauerkraut and herbs, cook until all combined well, add to ribs put oven at 350° for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until done juicy

Meals I want as soon as I can get out of the hospital system.....or stuff you can't get here.

 

1. Rib eye or porterhouse steak hot off the grill, baked potato with butter and sour cream, a green veggie like grilled asparagus or creamed or plain spinach and a Sam Adams Boston Lager :)

 

2. Ribs with saurkraut like the above recipe or maybe barbecued ribs, mmmm.

 

3. My wife's roast chicken with potatoes, onions, carrots....oh yeah simple but good!

 

I better stop now, I'm sure jello or other stuff is coming up in 2 hours. :lol:

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.

 

Oh no. Thank God that I missed you.

 

Where did you eat at?

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?

BBQ should be fall off the bone tender.

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?

 

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)

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.

If youre going to the lake without the wife, check out party cove.

 

Women take off their tops but thats perfectly legal in Missouri.

I find cooking medium depends on things like your setup, time, preferences, etc. We went from charcoal to LP to nat gas largely because of convenience and we use our grill like an indoor stove plus I can't do charcoal like I used to.

 

And good choice on Weber, well made will last.

 

I also recommended getting a Weber cookbook or two new or used, great ideas even if you're a seasoned griller.

Good reading and cooking. :)

Heard today Monday that I might be done with rehab by Friday or early next week and I'll be out of here.

I'm dying after 5 weeks in the hospital and here for a good, hot steak off the grill....like you wouldn't believe! :)

I guess that will have to wait again, my stay extended to 9/2/17. I think about grilling a lot in this joint and all of the bland food. Had to refiL my pepper shaker the other day.  Bummer.

Well we're debating on ribs in the Dutch oven -or- ribs on the grill this weekend......weather is supposed to be beautiful so probably outside! :D

Not many really exotic recipes for barbecued ribs just the sauce and cook them right.

Yea, and this stuff was not. It was from a chain called Old Carolina.

Old Carolina is not very good. Do you want some good barbecue? Go to Mission BBQ in Canton its top-notch, so is Jimmy's Backyard BBQ in Carrollton and Sammy Sue's in Dover.

This is the best barbecue in the country, and of course, it's in Parma.  

 

https://www.facebook.com/BarabicuSmokehouse/

My godparents and three cousins grew up in Parma, spent a lot of time there in the late 1950s and 1960s, they had a HUGE very deep lot woods and hills that led to a big pool and picnic grounds. Used to like to go and stay there.
