Virtual Ribberfest was a huge success! It was a Texas theme, so we smoked a 20lb full packer brisket for about 11 hours in the offset smoker with oak wood, then wrapped in pink butcher paper. We have slices of both lean and fatty featured as well as Texas style pork ribs with basic SPG and smoked paprika for the rub, Texas Twinkies, homemade pickled red onions, pickles, cheddar jalapeño cornbread and of course the white bread to emulate that Texas toast. I think me and my NEP boys nailed it! It was such a great day and despite today’s current climate with social distancing, we still pulled off an annual event that brings people together with barbecue.
