Beef Ribs That Aren’t Short on Zing

Beef short ribs have pretty much fallen from favor on America’s dinner table. In places like Texas, they’ve mostly been replaced with pork ribs, usually as barbeque. Time to change all that! (Well, not get rid of Jessica’s ribs; that’s a non-starter as far as PJ’s concerned.)

In the new cooking publication tied to Recipe.com […]

Fast Taxis, Roma's for Ribs, and the Trouble with Disneyland

We made it. All the way to Anaheim. No thanks to our cab driver…

The flight from Austin to LAX was uneventful. The food was unremarkable too, a bit unusual for American Airlines first-cabin fare. Oh well; I didn’t get on that high-speed pressurized metal tube for the meal! It was a bittersweet ride for […]

Ribfest Today! Y’all Come On By

That big pile of cars you see out front? Ribfest arrivals. (That’s me collecting exorbitant parking fees.)

The milling crowd, hoping for a whiff of the smoke from the pit? That’s Clan and friends, who can hardly contain themselves. (No news there.)

That sound like low-level fireworks going off in the background? That’s not fireworks, that’s […]

Killer Ribs, or Jitterbug's Secret Recipe Has Finally Met Its Match

Yesterday’s massive pigout light repast from the grill had me a bit sated at the time, but as dinner loomed on the horizon today I was hungry for more from the grill. (Loomed on the Horizon = It was after breakfast sometime, and I had to come up with an idea.) Two teenaged boys […]

Spicy Italian: Short Rib Ragu with Pappardelle

It’s been downright cold around here the past few days (although warming up today). Shoot, it was down in the high fifties a couple days ago, with rain. Yes, rain! Our two Goldens (Sonia and Whiskey) didn’t quite know what to make of it. Sonia wanted to stay on the porch, and Whiskey kept […]

Round Rock Rollickin’ Ribfest and Texas Chicken Dance Championships

The fateful day has finally arrived. Although her birthday isn’t until next week, she’s now officially 40. And after that insane donnybrook mayhem and merrymaking boisterous party the Chile Underground may never be the same…

After an early start to the day, cleaning and prepping (mostly sou-chef chores), we got the house in pretty spiffy […]

Round Rock Ribfest Preview

We’ve been having a lot of trouble defining the name for tomorrow’s landmark event. The singular nature of the pretext excuse reason for this drunken debauchery bunfight exciting celebration means we can’t use things like “First Annual” in the designation. It’s clearly not going to be merely a birthday party either. What to do, […]

Rib Fest Alert! An Important Dry Run

Paula Jo turns forty on the 21st of the month. Yep, you read that right; The Big Four-Oh. (And to think it only seems like we’ve been married that long.) The end of August is a busy time for the Clan, so we’re scheduling her party a bit early this year. We’ll hold the […]
