Meatgistics: Rib Competition
Meatgistics: Rib Competition
See who wins in this head to head to head battle of Austin, Jon and Ali! The competition this time was who can make the best St Louis Style Ribs. We chose our own ingredients, followed our own recipes and let the employees at Walton's decide the winner! Watch the video, read the guide, and then post your questions, comments or ideas for future competitions below.
So we have a few Rib videos recently showing you our favorite way to do ribs and an experiment where we tried cooking them in a crockpot with Dr Pepper! We started talking about different techniques so we decided it was time to do a competition to see who could make the best ribs! The only rule was that we would not use any sauces, everything had to be a rub or a marinade.
Austin decided to use Smokehouse BBQ Marinade as a marinade for his ribs, vacuum pack them and let them marinate overnight. Then he rubbed them with some mustard and sprinkled on a large amount of Smokehouse BBQ Rub. He then smoked them at 225° until they reached around 190°.
Ali decided to use Butter Flavored Seasoning & Marinade as a marinade for her ribs, vacuum pack them and let them marinate overnight and rubbed them with Texas Style Rump Rub. She then smoked them for 2 hours uncovered, then pulled them and wrapped them in foil then she rubbed them with Hot Pepper Bacon Jam and smoked them for 2 more hours.
Jon decided to not use an actual marinade for his ribs, but instead use the St Louis Rump Rub and add some water and Cold Phosphate to try to get them to stay juicy and marinade them overnight in a stark bucket liner. Then he rubbed them with some more St Louis Rump Rub. He then smoked them for 2 hours uncovered, then pulled them and wrapped them in foil with butter and brown sugar and smoked them for 2 more hours.
We then let the employees here at Walton’s decide the winner with a vote. Check out the video to see who won!

MMMMMM I was going to add Citric acid so maybe I’ll adjust and maybe do half one way.
Thanks for info.Tarp.
@tarp First, I think you are wise to go with the 1/2 to 10 lb ratio if you haven’t tried that cheese yet it is extremely hot! Very good tasting but it is nothing at all like our Hot Pepper cheese which tastes more like pepper jack, this stuff deserves its name in my opinion.
As for the flavor, I think they will match up fairly well. That might change if you use encapsulated citric acid, I can see the tang from the acid maybe not going so well with the Ghost Pepper Cheese. However, I also like adding Citric Acid when I make Habanero Lime snack stick so tang and heat aren’t necessarily a bad match, just something to think about!
I’m going to make some pepperoni sticks in a few days and was wondering if anyone has added ghost pepper high temp.cheese to the excalibur product. My wife thinks not . I’m talking 1/2 lb to 10lbs meat.
But we like it hotter than most people but it might not flavor it correctly.???
Will it BBQ? Smores!
In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Smores and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!Prep Time
5 MinutesCook Time
Obviously, Smores will BBQ, doing them on a grill is basically the same process as over a fire but doing it on the BBQ might have a few advantages. With normal smores, you are relying on the heat from the marshmallow to melt the chocolate and you can only do a few at a time.
Some people might say doing it this way takes all the fun out of it, the messy gooey fingers are part of it and if you have kids I’m sure that’s true but if you are making larger quantities for a dessert then this is the way to go. We lined the bottom of a foil pan with graham crackers then we laid a few pieces of chocolate on top of those and put the marshmallow ontop of that. We left the top layer of graham crackers off until just before it was done so we could easily monitor their progress.
We did a few where we cut a slit in the marshmallows and inserted a small piece of chocolate to see if that made any difference in the finished appearance.
We had our grill running at 450° and we let them cook for about 10 minutes.So, Will it BBQ?
I sprinkled some Cinnamon toast shake on these and just like always that made things a lot tastier!
So, in the end, is this any better than doing it over a fire? Well that depends, if the little ones want to use something like the Fire Fishing Pole and make an evening of it then this might take some of the fun out of it. However, if you are just wanting to make some delicious gooey smores for a lot of people then this is the way to go!Shop Walton’s for Broil King S 590 Weston Pro Series #32 Meat Grinder Hi-Temp Ghost Pepper Cheese
