BBQing and Tech
Posted 12 July 2012 - 05:47 PM
now that i am older and have my own fam and house and such. I find that my new love is cooking.
I have four different BBQs now, two offset smokers and have been doing Rib Comps as much as i can afford to do ;-)
I have a wireless temp monitor that i got at Sears, but i hate it. it doesnt allow me to set what temps i want the meat to get to, it has set temps for pork, beef, turkey and chicken.. but i cook Lamb and all sorts of things. and i dont like my chicken / pork to be rubber so i normally pull it off before it gets to temp and let the meat rest like you are suppose to..
has any one seen any cool apps or made and AHK script for monitoring meat temps? I have been lookning for some type of USB monitor or some sort of wireless thing i could do. so that i could set the meat temp and then go inside and play games (Diablo 3 now) for hours with only going out to add more coals and wood to the fire..

I do a Mustard based one that i make. Have been working on a sweet and spicy teriaki sacue for ribs, i use a chinese five spice as the rub. makes for some very tasty ribs that you wont find at most places. I got 4th place out of 17 at a comp with that sauce.
Damn, that looks good! When you make the sauce, do you do a ketchup based sauce or a vinegar based sauce? They use vinegar here in NC, but I'm used to the red sauce of Tennessee.
