Quick pork bbq
A CASE OF PORK HERESY
Saturday might MoSup
asked Hucker if we could bring anything to the Christening. "Yes,
Danny's famous pork bbq," he answered all smart-alecky, referring
to my BIL's famous pork bbq that he stays up all night to pamper into
something so delicious that it was nominated for the Nobel Peace
Prize. Ha-Ha. Sunday morning I decided to grant his
request, and this is where the heresy comes in. It begins with
another bit of bbq unorthodoxy.
times MoSup will say, around 5 PM, "I shor would like me some ribs
tonight." So this one time I decided to try and come up with a
passable version for 6PM dinner.
I grabbed a rack of frozen ribs from the freezer, and snapped them in
half with a sharp crack on the edge of the butcher block so they fit in
the pressure cooker. I prepare my ribs for freezing by rubbing
them in Schlong's famous dry Rub,
and vacuum sealing them, so nothing more was added. I pressure
cooked them for 30 minutes, and let them sit for another 15 minutes
while the steam dissipated. When I opened the lid, the ribs were
near falling off the bone. I tonged them onto a cooking sheet,
sprinkled some more Schlong's on them, and popped them under a waiting
broiler for about 10 minutes, just to crisp them.
How good were they? Good enough that MoSup won't eat them any other way.
So, Sunday morning I thought , hmmmmm. I ran up to the Food Lion and bought a pork butt that weighed about four pounds. I coated it with Schlong's and
popped it in the pressure cooker for 90 minutes, then let it
decompress another 15 minutes. After pouring the meat and
cooking juices into a baking pan, I pulled my pork with a fork (owwy), then to
the gas grill. I packed the smoker pan
with some dead tree limbs (plum),and let it go at 300° for an
HMFS! I know it was good, because by this time Rahouy, a famous
food snob, had arrived and could not stop eating it. "This is
better than Danny's," he said. There is no greater BBQ compliment in my family. So, the next
time you need a great tasting Pork BBQ in under 3 hours, try it.
But don't tell anyone you weren't up all night baby sitting it.
BTW, I also made someone else's world famous cream corn bread recipe,
henceforth known as "Schlong's Famous Canned Corn Casserole." I
know what you're saying, but trust me here and don't let the name fool
you. It's one of those deals where everybody who eats it will
demand the recipe.
