Smoked Spare Ribs on a Gas Grill

2 different Racks of Smoked Ribs, cut in half on a cutting board.

The Easiest Smoked Ribs

Anyone that thinks you can’t smoke spare ribs on a gas grill, with excellent results, is retarded. I mean that literally, with offense, because I get the most ridiculous insults in my comments about it. All you need is a controlled, indirect heat source, smoke and a great recipe. The slow and low process takes care of the rest and, with a little finesse, no one will ever be able to tell the difference. I’ll prove it!

2 Recipes for Spare Ribs Ingredients:

1st Recipe: Garam Masala Spare Ribs
2 tbsp Kosher Salt & Pepper, each side
2 tbsp Sriracha, each side
2 to 3 tbsp Garam Masala Seasoning or Ground Cumin, each side
1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar, for spritzing

Wrapping Ingredients:
2 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Butter

2nd Recipe: Blackened Seasoning Spare Ribs
2 tbsp Kosher Salt & Pepper, each side
2 tbsp Yellow Mustard, each side
2 to 3 tbsp Blackened Seasoning, each side
1 cup Apple Cider Vinegar, for spritzing

Wrapping Ingredients:
2 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Butter

This kind of goes with out saying but, you’re going to need a gas grill that has enough space to run indirect heat under the ribs, a bowl of water and some wood chips or pellets to produce smoke. I use this smoke tube but you can shape a box of aluminum foil with poked holes instead, full of burning chips or pellets, and it will work just fine. You’re also going to need some Aluminum foil for wrapping, as well.

Season and cook the ribs, on low indirect heat, for 4 hours at 235┬░ Fahrenheit.
Then wrap the ribs in Aluminum Foil, with the wrapping ingredients, and cook for
an additional 1 1/2 hours. Follow the instructions in the video tutorial for more
details and best results.

Mean Green Juice

12 oz glass of Mean Green Juice.

The Best Mean Green Juice

There are a ton of variations of this juice recipe but basically, it’s the super green fruits and vegetables that make this such a nutritional and tasty drink. It’s packed with Kale, Cucumber, Celery, Green Apples, Ginger and a squeeze of Lemon. I even like to mix spinach into the ingredients when I have it. This drink is a powerful detox for the body and it aids in weight loss if managed properly. Super foods like the ingredients in this drink are cheap too so, there’s no reason not to give this a try.

Detox and Weight Loss

I’m no expert and I’ve only began to scrape the surface of juicing but I’ve personally been incorporating into my diet for almost 10 months now. I have a celery juice every single morning to start, which aids the liver. According to those flat belly experts, it’s impossible to have a healthy liver and be over weight so I’ve been cleaning that bad boy up.

As far as the Mean Green Juice goes, Kale contains fiber, antioxidants, calcium, vitamins C and K, iron, and a wide range of other nutrients.

Cucumber hydrates the body and contains potassium and magnesium to support fluid balance. I recently passed my first, hopefully my last, Kidney stone and hydration was one of the key ingredients to move that along. Cucumber may also clear up your skin, reduce your blood pressure and I’ve heard it even helps to break up Gout.

Green Apples contain pectin, which is a fiber source that works as a prebiotic to promote the growth of healthy bacteria in your gut to help digestion. I’ve also heard that one apple is the equivalent of one cup of coffee, only better for you.

Ginger has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities. It also has a ton of other benefits that include easing digestion, calming nausea or motion sickness and aids the immune system to fight colds and congestion.

Lemon can ease a sore throat, help blood sugar, prevent kidney stones, it has cancer fighting benefits, aids weight loss and, once again, aids in digestion and clears up skin.

Juicer vs Blender

There are a ton of nutrients that get wasted juicing but some people just can’t stomach all that fiber from a blender so, it’s going to be up to you and your personal preference, which one you choose to use. If you don’t have a juicer and you only have a blender but don’t want the pulp, you can poor the juice through a mesh strainer and mash the pulp with a spatula.

Double Sausage and Egg McMuffin with Cheese

One Double Sausage and Egg McMuffin with Cheese Sandwich cut in half.

The Best McMuffin’s

I realize some people aren’t fans of McDonalds food. If that’s the case with you, what are you doing here? Oh I get it… you know my recipes are usually better. Okay, that’s cool, you can stay. I mean, get a load of this Double Sausage and Egg McMuffin with Cheese, yo! It’s a lot of fun to make, too. Especially if you’ve got a griddle.

1 bag of a dozen English Muffins.

McMuffin Bread

It’s essential to have the right bread when you’re making a sandwich. You’ve got to have Rye bread, when you’re making a Rueben, Sub Rolls, when you’re making a Philly and you’ve got to have English Muffins, which is a sour dough bread, when you’re making McMuffin’s.

16 oz Farmland Original pork sausage still in the wrapper.

Sausage and Egg

The Sausage and Egg McMuffin is made with 1 breakfast sausage patty, 1 egg and 1 piece of processed American cheese. Personally I prefer Jimmy Dean sausage but Farmland was on sale so, use what you like. I portion the patty’s into a 1/4 pound each.

The egg is cooked in an egg mold to keep it round. It’s cooked sunny side up and with a little trick I show you in the video to keep from flipping the egg over. The yolk is cooked all the way through.

Double Sausage and Egg with Cheese Ingredients:

2 English Muffins
1 lbs Ground Breakfast Sausage

2 pc Cheese, processed American
1 tbsp Butter
