What’s better than a BBQ on a National Holiday? I used the Traeger for some St. Louis cut ribs. This recipe was crazy simple. Like shamefully simple. Mostly I just want to get in the habit of updating my blog, so this is what you get. Ingredient Quantity St. Louis Ribs 2 Racks Favorite Rub Lots Texas Blend Traeger Pellets At least 2 hoppers worth Oh yeah, you’ll need a Traeger too.

Oven Carnitas

Kenji seems to have superpowers. I like everything I’ve made with his guidance, and I’m hoping that this is no exception. I love me some carnitas and I think that trimming off the fat will fit well in my diet. I found 16 lbs of Pork Butt (Shoulder) at Costco. Only when I got home did I realize that it might have been a bit of overkill. I put half in the freezer for some other adventure.
