I'm really digging this recipe, but I love the BBQ Pit Boys anyways.  Ever since I found the Pot Chicken BBQ I posted on hear so very long ago.

pork spare ribs
4-5lbs sauerkraut 

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon carraway seed
potatoes
two onions
two apples
one bottle beer
smoked bacon
smoked kielbasa
olive oil

That should be real good from those boys.  That's pretty close to my German Gumbo recipe.  I did the Pot Chicken recipe and it was real good.  good luck.

Hey, those guys swiped my smoked ribs and kraut recipe :lol: :lol:.  If you have not tried using smoked ribs and sausage with your sauerkraut you need to try it.  The kraut (I also add some coleslaw) picks up a wonderful flavor.  Here is mine assembled and ready to bake. There is a layer of sliced potatoes and more onion rings that are hidden.

I forgot to mention... some twice smoked hocks or shanks also work great in this dish.  I'll sometimes use my 6 qt Nesco roaster for the second part of the cook.  The smells in the kitchen are unbelievable.

Hey now you are  swiping my recipe :grin:.  Man those look great, looks like a whole shank cut in half.  Nice and meaty.  That's a must for my German Gumbo.  I think what really is a plus for that dish is beef broth added.  It helps meld all the flavors together.  i love the broth.  I serve it on a deep plate just so I have a lot of that broth.  good luck.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
