Looks good. I’ll let you know mine if it’s any good. I don’t normally add BBQ during a Cook but since these are SousVide and not low and slow smoked, I might try some. Typically good Q doesn’t require sauce on the meat while cooking. It’s the smoke and the fat in the meat that breaks down that gives it, its flavor. Rapid cooks on high heat requires sauce. I did use some Liquid Hickory Smoke in the SousVide preparation.

We apply the sauce at the end of the cook.  We apply and let it caramelize during two minutes intervals then flip, for the final 6-8 minutes.

Our bathroom remodel is almost done! Glass went in today and only a few minor touches left.

I love the alcoves you have for your soaps and shampoo.  I have a big walk-in shower but we did not think to do that and so the soaps go on the floor.  A nuisance.

So the curfew (about midnight to 6 am I think) ended last night.  We went out for a meal and stayed out at the casino.  Lots of rules about which way to walk and we had to wear masks inside.  I was told off for not having my mask on but I was drinking the gin I had just bought.  Not sure how it tastes through a mask.  

 

Hooray I won for a change.  I took £30 and came away with £180 from the slots.  Ended up discussing with youngest daughter how I am going to spend it!  ‘We’re in the money’ is the song of the day.

Ok. SousVide ribs done and ate. Verdict. They were nice and tender. Making homemade BBQ sauce was a PIA. Actually good. The boss didn’t complain but just didn’t WOW us.  I’m sorry, just can’t beat a good Southern Low and Slow  cook. It was worth trying them once. 
 

Thanks JC for the inspiration. Just not a fan of cooking with sauce on my meat. 🤔😁

Chag Sameach @dani negreanu and everyone else!

We had a beautiful sunny day in the low 70s and I spent most outside cleaning up flower beds, patio furniture, roto-tilled garden, put snowblower away...YAY!!!   I didnt think I had that much gas in it but it took over an hour to run it out.  

Nice bbq burgers with tater tots for dinner.  

Catching up on thread now.

If you find the right sauce it can be worth it to make it. We usually stick with Sweet Baby Ray's honey chipotle. And it goes on toward the end of the cook so it will get sticky and not burn.

The ribs were already cooked, SousVide.

We're having ribs tonight. They take about an hour on the BBQ. We have a Weber Genesis. And we use Chaka MMM sauce on ribs and some other meats. https://chakasmmm.com/ Very tasty, and no sugars or oils so it doesn't caramelize and doesn't burn on the meat. :classic_biggrin: Tater tots on the side and DH is having potato salad.  :classic_biggrin:

Second attempt at making my own BBQ sauce. First attempt was major fail.

Why bother, when Head Country from Oklahoma is available in the stores, and if it is not in your stores, I am sorry because you are not where BBQ is from....

Nope. Baby back ribs, half slab. Not smoked or anything fancy, just barbecued. :classic_biggrin:

It is about $6 or 7 a bottle for a big one in my grocery store.  It is amazing how much Amazon makes distributing it for the yokels who make it.  The pictures are all of small bottles.

 

You want the original.

 

It is good on any meat.

I think that’s a pack of 6. 20oz each.

You really should try the in a sous vide, or at least in a BBQ smoker.  So much better.

 

Although, I personally, have never met a bad baby back rib.

 

Where is John and his McRib, which should be eligible for prison time eating those monstrosities.

I think Sous Vide must be primarily a guy thing. (pardon my sexist language) The male members seem to be enamored with them. Some of us that have to cook meals regularly, really feel no need to plan that far ahead for dinner or cook anything for that long, have the additional prep work or more pots and appliances to clean. Besides purchasing additional specialty appliances and a vacuum sealer and vacuum bags. That's okay.  :classic_biggrin:

 

 But I am sincerely glad that those of you that have a Sous Vide and associated accessories, enjoy it and get a lot of use out of it. :classic_biggrin: But it is not really our thing.

Is it a whole year since I learned here about Gefilte fish and I had a go??   It must be.  I thought that they were really nice and mean to make them again.  I need to go looking for some fish.

I started doing some homemade sauces and it made me discover just how much sugar goes in the manufactured ones.  

 

The motivation was to clear out my store cupboard a little.  I just want the basic ingredients which I can put together for a variety of different sauces.  It has the benefit of me not having to keep remembering to buy them.  

 

BBQ, teriyaki, stirfry sauce - all really easy to make and at least you know what is in them.

Haven’t posted for a few days. Last Sunday we put out the front porch furniture. 
 

Didn’t take Lucy long to find it. In fact Friday she slept in it from 9am to 3:30pm.

A couple days later.

Yup there's a lot of sugar. That's what makes it so yummy. I think you just have to be careful of what kind of sugar is used. So many opinions on appropriate sugars.
