    Default Beef Rib finale'

    Last time I tried beef ribs (today is only my second try), they ended up
    being under cooked and I stuck them in the pressure cooker to tenderize
    them. The results were less than spectacular but they were edible. <g>
    I had roasted them then too, but a shorter time at a higher temp.

    They were on sale again for $.99 per lb. this week so I decided to give
    it another try. Generally, I just go to Ironworks in Austin and get them
    from there. They are wonderful! Best BBQ in the area I swear. (Thanks
    Sqwertz! <g>)

    So anyhoo, I set the temp in the roaster at 275 and set a timer for 3
    hours and put some turkey drumsticks for dad in there along with them,
    planning to take the turkey out at one hour. No go. The turkey was still
    mostly raw.

    I cranked the temp up to 325 for the next 2 hours and the turkey was
    perfect. The ribs were perfect also texture-wise (falling off the bone
    tender) but the flavor was not what I wanted. They tasted like stew meat.

    This was yesterday, so I chilled the ribs in the 'frige overnight and
    started a fire in the offset smoker this morning. I ended up only
    having to smoke the ribs for 35 minutes as I ended up with a really hot
    fire from the dry mesquite and hackberry wood I had in the yard.

    The ribs now taste like proper ribs. :-)

    The package instructions that came on the package suggest to braise
    first and then grill, so seems that is a good method.

    I also cooked 5 more frozen turkey drumsticks in there and did those for
    one hour. They are juicy and spectacular!

    Served with a steamed artichoke and some grilled mexican zucchini:

    That photo looks like a work of art. BTW, I planted artichokes this
    year. Now I am wishing they were more than 1" tall. lol

    I've bought pots of 2 year old artichokes from the nursery.
    I've never been able to keep them alive. :-(

    Artichokes are very picky about the weather. They cannot stand any
    heat, but they also cannot stand freezing. Where in the world can you
    find a place that is never warm but never freezes?

    About 80% of the artichokes sold in the US are grown near the ocean
    about three hours south of me. The other 20% are grown elsewhere in
    California.

    Yes, I know.
    But I love them enough (they are my second favorite veggie), I just had
    to give it a shot. I'm thinking they need a partially shaded greenhouse
    here.

    My sister cuts hers back in the winter, but her artichokes are 3-4 yrs
    old. Mine may not make it, I just grow a few vegetables, whereas she
    has a huge garden that she tends to most of the day. Artichokes take up
    so much space, they get over 4 feet tall. She says they like full sun,
    but last summer temperatures here reached 105 degrees. How they survive
    the winters and the summers here is beyond me, but you find artichokes
    growing in gardens here in Louisiana.

    Hm. I might have to give it another shot.

    I have a couple of very large pots. Maybe container'ing them would work
    better here.

    My sister has good luck growing artichokes, but her garden is bigger
    than mine. I doubt that mine will live, but I will give it a try. When
    I was at her house Friday, I picked some radishes and we cut some
    broccoli. The broccoli is in the fridge, with the stalks sitting in
    water. My youngest son will be here Wednesday and he is so excited
    about eating his Aunt Linda's broccoli. Easy to please, isn't he? lol

    Not a bad thing. <g> Treasure that child!

    I love cooked radishes and am considering serving them mashed. For a
    root veggie, they are surprisingly low carb.
