Recipe Wanted


Ribs came out beautifully. Falling-off-the-bone tender, flavorful, a bit of crisp on the outside but juicy and delicious on the inside.

No thanks to you ingrates. Geez, I ask for ONE thing, just ONE….


Pork ribs were on sale at the grocery store. I bought some and plan to smoke ’em on my stove-top smoker tomorrow.

However, I cannot find my favorite marinade and spice rub recipe. So, if you have a good recipe for pork ribs, lay it on me.

The smoker is non-negotiable though. I just love what it does to the meat (not to mention how yummy it makes the house smell at this time of year.)

    I just like to mix tomato puree or diced tomatoes with sautéed garlic and onions, some dark corn syrup, honey or brown sugar, pepper, salt, worcestshire, tabasco or other liquid heat, vinegar and stone ground mustard and simmer it for a while. I don’t usually measure because then I would have to remember what I did.


    Hi, SB: I sent my cousin Dave the recipe Tybee provided (removed the superfluous paprika). Dave is a professional BBQ judge (he has been a judge at Memphis in May for several years, and travels to competitions all over the eastern US and Canada) and he had a couple of tips:

    This is good. Can adjust the cayenne for heat,more or less. Might want to try turbinado sugar instead of brown….a wee bit less sweet, doesn’t burn/caramelize as easy……

    Also, take membrane off the back of the ribs….accepts smoke better. And…too late for this weekend……rub ribs night before & wrap TIGHTLY in cellophane/Saranwrap, refrigerate & cook the next day. Tender, flavourful……

    I only made ribs one time, but I remember the secret was CARROTS!>/B>

    As an aside, do you have a full (goes outside) exhaust?

    I’d like the idea of experimenting with a stovetop smoker, but without somewhere for it to go, I’m at a loss.

    • I do have a hood exhaust system but honestly, the stovetop smoker gives off very little smoke. I can’t imagine it setting off a fire alarm, though if you’re worried you can crack open a window.

      I have a Cameron’s. They’re awesome!!!!

    Recipes, You want some STEENKEEN recipes?! Aieeeeeeeeee, here ya go:

    I’d try the “Beaumont Inn” recipe and work up to the “Elza Perry” recipe. And when you get there, best send us all invites!

    I actually had some burgoo made by my neighbor from Kentucky about a week ago. It was pretty damned good, even though there was no possum, woodchuck, skwerlz or coon in it.
