View Full Version : Lucile & Ursula vs the fam (wife and evil daughter)

09-11-2012, 09:28 PM
i wanted to prove that there was no difference in taste between Lucile and Ursula ribs. my fam doesn't like the food from the drum that much. i'm going to change that right now. the food has had a funny taste from the drum. i called the jedi master (BP) and told him what was going on. he told me no more pellet packs or wood chunks. he said just use lump and nothing else. okie dokie.

i used the same rubs and the same temp in cooking the ribs on Lucile and Ursula.


everyone in the pools.



looking good maynard.



mixed some blues hog and bulls eye for my sauce.



they look the same to me. the top rack is from the mak.


Lucile rib (a) didn't have much of a smoke ring. Ursula (b) did have one using lump only.



both ribs were very good. so, i served my wife and the evil one from plate A and a plate B. told them to take a bite out of one rib and then the other rib. they both could tell that there was a difference in taste between the Lucile and Ursula but couldn't tell which rib was from who. they both liked rib A (MAK) better the 1st serving. the 2nd serving i switched rib A w/ rib B (the old switch o roo). they still picked A. hehe. then i told them. alright, no more comments about Ursula's food. they said ok. Ursula is now part of the bbq fam.


thanks BP for saving my @$$ again.

Sparky that is a great story! just toss a handful of pellets on the coals right when you put the meat on instead of the packets now
