Smoked Ribs

bbq roast marinated baby back pork ribs close up hot flaming grill


Getting the great taste of summer in your backyard may not come easy to you. But, with a bit of knowledge and a few tips on how to smoke ribs, you can rule the backyard barbecue. Let us help you. After all, our goal is getting you to the next level of flavor. Keep reading to boost your grill master skills, no matter your current level of expertise.

1. Choose a good cut of meat — one right for smoking.
2. Trim the brisket bone (on spare ribs) and any side bones.
3. Remove the membrane so the seasonings penetrate the meat more fully.
4. Cutaway extra hunks of fat outside the bones. Leave the fat between the bones.
5. Apply multiple layers of flavor: First, use a rub or marinade. Second, choose wood which adds to your flavor. Third, use a mop sauce throughout cooking for flavor and moisture. And, finally, apply barbecue sauce as a glaze in the final minutes of cooking.


• Smoke for four to six hours at low temperatures.
• A gentle stream of smoke, not billowing clouds, is your goal. Black smoke means the juices are burning and tainting your food. Adjust ventilation and the position of the ribs to produce white smoke.
• Stay nearby to attend to the cooking process, apply mop sauce and check the temperature every 45 minutes to an hour.
• Open the lid only when needed so heat and smoke stay inside.
• Ribs are done when meat shrinks back from the end of the bones by a quarter to half an inch. A dark caramelized crust on the ribs says “Let’s eat!”

Use regional wood you can find in your area, or find these hardwoods in most hardware stores.

  • Apple: Sweet, fruity and mellow, this wood takes longer to permeate the meat.
  • Cherry: Very fruity and mild, cherry combines well with other woods, like hickory, oak or pecan. It lends a vibrant mahogany color to meats.
  • Hickory: The most well known, popular and versatile wood, hickory burns slow. A sweet, savory, hearty flavor with a hint of bacon comes from getting it right — too much smoke makes the meat bitter.
  • Maple: Light and sweet with a mild smokiness, maple offers the most subtle flavor.
  • Mesquite: This intense, unique flavor may become overpowering for large cuts requiring longer smoking times. And, its oily nature makes it easier to burn.
  • Oak: Great for the newbie, this go-to wood produces a medium to strong flavor without the risk of overpowering the natural flavor of the meat. It works great for longer smoking times.
  • Pecan: Mildly fruity and nutty, pecan wood burns cooler and works well for bigger cuts of meat.
    You may also want to try ash, alder, pear, and plum. But avoid elm, cedar, cypress, pine, and sycamore. Their strength destroys the flavor of the meat. Finally, you may choose to use wood chips rather than chunks of wood.

Best Ribs for Smoking

Leaner ribs (like baby backs) work best for fast cooking methods, like straight grilling. Smoking may cook up a tough, dry dinner on leaner cuts. The high-fat content of spare ribs makes them ideal for smoking. However, you are free to experiment.

Choose the Best Ribs

Fresh, not frozen, pink-in-color ribs promise better results. Also, look for uniform size and fattiness in ribs for even cooking. Meat with fatty marbling remains moist and flavorful during long cooking hours. And, the fat melts away after hours in the smoker.Snake River Farms Wagyu 468

Ready to play with fire, create some smoke and turn up the summer heat in your backyard? We hope these tips inspire you to step behind the grill and take charge. Armed with information and resources you are sure to be ready. For more incentive, sign up for our monthly Grill Masters Club. Additional tips await you on how to smoke ribs, grill and more.

Grow Your Own Fruit And Vegetables

Diet. Tomato with measuring tape on weight scale
Having your own vegetable patch or fruit garden was once commonplace, but fell out of flavor as the food industry become more commercial and supermarkets began to take over. In recent years, however, more and more people have started to explore growing their own produce again. Here we give 5 reasons why you might consider starting your own kitchen garden.
– Freshness
Fruit and vegetables taste better and are healthier if eaten as soon as possible after picking. Most fruit you buy from supermarkets and the like is picked well before it is properly ripe, to extend shelf life, and this usually has an impact on flavor. Growing your own lets you taste the freshest possible produce as it's meant to taste.
– Quality
Commercially grown crops are often selected for their high yields, uniform appearance, and long shelf lives rather than for quality and taste. When you grow your own, you can concentrate on the quality rather than the economics.
– Price
Much supermarket fresh produce is hugely overpriced, despite their advertising claims. Growing your own from seed is about as inexpensive as you can get, and even growing from small plants you buy is likely to provide you better food at a lower cost. With many plants, you can use the seed from one growing season to provide plants for the next – a self-sustaining cycle that will cost you only time and effort to keep going.
– Provenance
More and more people have concerns about how our food is produced, with chemical pesticides and GM food a particular worry. With your own vegetable patch, you know exactly where your food is from and how it was grown.
– Variety
There are literally thousands of different varieties of fruit and vegetables, but supermarkets tend to concentrate on only the most profitable and easy to sell. This means that our choice is often limited to a few select varieties of apple, for example, rather than the hundreds of traditional kinds that exist. Growing your own lets you pick the varieties you like the most, and experiment to find new ones you'll rarely see on sale.
There is, of course, a downside to all this – it takes time and effort. In these increasingly busy times, we might not think we have the time to spare, but starting small with a few herb plants on your windowsill, or even the odd tomato plant, will give you a taste of growing your own and might even be enough to hook you into it for life!

Kettle & Fire Bone Broth Review

Beef Broth Chicken Broth Mushroom Chicken

Low Carb Friendly Way to Boring Meals?

Regardless of how long you’ve been doing a healthy diet, there are certain things that will trigger yearnings you know will cause havoc with your healthy diet.
I could remember one of my moments of weakness perfectly. I was visiting a high school friend in New York, and his wife is from Mexico. They didn’t know about my diet and offered up enchiladas.
Before I knew what had happened, I had been into my second helping. And within a few days, my healthy eating was all over the place.Bone Beef Broth
I have become better at thinking and saying no to the such, but a good regular Mexican dish is full of carbs, as are so many other delicious meals.
After confessing to my dietitian, she introduced me to an excellent product called Kettle & Open fire Bone Broth, which does an amazing job at creating low-carb sauces for all sorts of meals.
Obviously, it’s nearly vegetarian or vegan-friendly, but for you meat lovers who are struggling with some flavor in meals, this might you need to be the solution.
So, let’s take a closer take a look at what this small miracle is all about.

WHAT'S Kettle And Fire Bone Broth?

Kettle And Fireplace Bone Broth is a stock created by boiling the best quality organic chicken and beef bones.
Within a boiling process that may take over 20 hours, the causing stock is loaded full of nutrients and flavor. As well as the best benefit is that we now have no dry-freeze procedures in play that could mess with the quality.
 The idea of using bone broth to enhance the flavors in your food isn’t new and has been a traditional approach to cooking for so long as the container and pan were made.
The difference that Kettle and Fire bone broth bring to the table is the medical aspect of it being organic and saturated in quality.
Kettle and Fireplace bone broths were created in the aim of being the best in quality and healthiest bone broths that you could find on the market. The business prides itself from deriving the bone from the knuckle, patella, femur, and foot bone fragments of organic and free-range chickens and cows.
In terms of providing variety in their bone broths, Kettle and Fire sell 3 different kinds of bone broths:
Beef Bone Broth
Chicken Bone Broth

What Are The Different Flavors?

Presently, Kettle & Fire offer Beef, Chicken and Mushroom Chicken as the flavors for their bone broth.
There is also a wide range of different ready-made organic soups that are great tasting as well. However, the bone broth works fine for me to generate amazing foods and soups, so I recommend starting there.

Is Kettle And Fireplace Bone Broth Organic?

Yes, all Kettle And Fire Bone Broth products are 100% certified organic only using the best quality products from family possessed and run farms.
The chickens are accredited pasture-raised, organic and non-GMO. Similarly, all the cows are sourced from authorized organic farms that only use grass as feed.
All the vegetables and spices are also organic so the final result is among the best quality products available.

What are the advantages of Kettle & Fire?

One of the main benefits of bone broth is that it’s packed full of collagen and gelatin. These proteins are essential sources of amino acids that reduce swelling in the gut and therefore help to make your digestive tract more effective.
Bone broth also contains chondroitin sulfates and glucosamine substances, which are known to simplicity joint pain and arthritis and reduce inflammation. These ingredients are commonly found inexpensive natural supplements and rarely in these concentrations.
Perhaps some of the most significant advantages of bone broth are its ability to improve the body’s immune system and also to address symptoms of conditions such as asthma, arthritis, and even an array of allergies.
This is because of the abundance of the same collagen and amino acids that work as anti-inflammatories mentioned above.
All the nutrients that this broth delivers are often missing when you begin a healthy diet. They could be difficult to replace with low-carb food sources, which just makes the original healthy diet flu that much more difficult.
However, with this simple broth, you can fill that nutritional void and ensure that your early symptoms are relieved.
What exactly are the Ingredients?
When it comes to the elements they can be summed up as simple and 100% organic. It doesn’t get superior to that.
Basically, depending on the flavor you choose (Beef, Poultry or Mushroom Poultry), bones from 100% naturally farmed chickens and cows are boiled for over 20 hours.
This pulls out all the rich nutrients and flavors that produce this such an amazing product.
In addition to the main ingredients you'll also find the following:
Apple Cider Vinegar
Mixed Spices

So what is the  Flavor Like?

As should be expected, Kettle & Fire tastes great tasting. Both varieties have been developed with the help of well-trained and highly certified chefs with years of experience in classic cuisine.
No expense has been spared in producing a wealthy and tasty blend that will measure to even the best possible soups from the most reputable restaurants in the culinary picture.
The secret to the tempting flavor and irresistible aroma of Kettle & Fire is no secret whatsoever. The method has been useful for thousands of years and handed down from era to era, just slightly revised for modern-day production requirements.
The best possible quality bones are simmered over low heat for at least a day, in the time-honored tradition practiced all over the world. This provides plenty of time for the bone marrow, the collagen, and the proteins to infuse the broth with their distinctive goodness.
Also responsible for the amazing flavor is the fact that the merchandise should never be frozen. That is why you get the full flavor connection with freshly-made broth with every providing.
The best thing is that you have 3 different flavors to choose from Meat, Poultry and Mushroom Poultry.
My personal favorite is the beef, but I regularly fill up on the mushroom poultry as well. It just has that tiny bit more flavor than the basic chicken.
With regards to recipes, there are plenty of ideas on the business website, but I personally just add them to almost every meal. You can just make a straightforward sauce, or if you’re really stuck, they also lead to a great foundation for soup.
They are so tasty that you won’t want a meal without them.
Now, knowing all this, and understanding that I suffer from nearly every condition listed above (and honestly, I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t), I still just couldn’t bring myself to drink it. I’m such a wuss. If it didn’t taste good, the benefits just didn’t matter if you ask me.
But certainly, something changed, because here I am, writing an assessment of bone broth. And I can’t write an assessment of bone broth unless I've tasted it. Which I do. Here’s what happened:
1 day, I received a bundle in the email. I open it up and find out 2 cartons of Kettle & Fireplace Meat Bone Broth staring back at me. I tensed up a little. I absolutely wished to give this a go, I absolutely wanted to do what’s befitting my body, however, the memories of my homemade attempt come flooding back again. I am a coward and the cartons sit, unopened, in the pantry for weeks. Finally, I decided to quit being a baby about it. I opened up one carton, warmed it up, poured some in a mug and just went for this. I wanted to hold my nose such as a 5-year-old drinking awful cough syrup, but I buck up and hope for the best.
One sip becomes two. It’s good. Really good. I brought the mug to Rob and made him drink some. He also remembers my failed attempt and was skeptical. But he liked it to and drank it all so I needed to heat up even more for myself.
Let me tell you, that is strictly the opposite of how I thought it was going to go down. My first impression of the Kettle & Fireplace Beef Bone Broth was that it was buttery! I wasn’t anticipating that whatsoever, but it was. Flawlessly buttery, salty, and seasoned just right. I mean, it’s still bone broth, but it’s arguably the best bone broth I will ever run into. And I am drinking it again, and enjoying it!
So you understand how when you come across a really best part, you want to talk about it with everyone? That’s what I want to do. In addition to telling you precisely how great this bone broth is, I'd like you to be able to try it for yourself. Right now, you can get a 20% off discount so you can stock up on the great bone broth at a great price.
Now could be your chance to give it a try and get started on improving your pores and skin, gut health, and joints in a tasty way.
You are perfect therefore kind to offer all this for free! I am amazed. We did the whole 30 last summer and it helped a large amount. We are time for it again as we have completely fallen off the wagon and are paying for it actually. His bypass will be slightly eggs, no evening shades because he has Hashimoto's and has read from Dr. Izabella Wentz about diet and this Disease. There is some crossover, thus that will help. I believe we will end up more paleo…that’s the goal anyway..still without the eggs for him anyway. Have you got any tips/ideas for non-egg breakfasts?
I am so very thankful for your time and energy in preparing meals and menus and lists. It means so much to a very busy mother and trying to repair better things for my children and help my hubby feel better too. We are starting on July 1 so we can prepare well. Many thanks again! I think I might give my hands at komboucha….my daughter’s think it’s great, however, your right..crazy expensive in the stores! Many thanks, thank you, thank you!
If you’ve been indulging yourself into the healthy diet world, or irrespective of your daily diet, this superfood is going to help improve your wellbeing tremendously.
The superfood I’m about to introduce for you today is bone broth, which is rich in the proteins glycine, proline, the protein gelatin, and minerals. There are so many amazing advantages of bone broth which I will discuss more below.Chicken and Beef Bone Broth
I am reviewing the “Kettle and Fireplace Bone Broth”, a very popular brand with three amazing and tasty products: chicken broth, meat broth, and chicken & mushroom broth.
To provide an intensive review of the merchandise, I am analyzing all areas of the Kettle and Fireplace Bone Broth in terms of:
Quality – We’ll check out the substances and what makes it healthy or not healthy
Source – Assessment on the source of the bone is crucial in understanding the vitamins and minerals of the bone broth
Taste – No point having a wholesome product if you can’t keep it down
Pricing – You can’t really enjoy something to its fullest potential if you feel the burn off in your pocket every time you consume it

Benefits of Bone Broths

Packed with all the essential minerals you could ever ask for, bone broths make a wholesome (and yummy) addition to your meal prep. Being a bioavailable nutrient source, bone broths are easily absorbed by the body thus increasing the advantages of calcium, magnesium, sulfur, phosphorus, silicon, glucosamine, and chondroitin sulfates through the intake.
Quite simply, bone broths are recognized for these health advantages:
Improving your body’s disease-fighting capability
Enhancing asthmatic and arthritis conditions
Convenience symptoms related to the leaky gut syndrome
Helps control allergies
Improves food tolerance
Enhances joint movement
Quality and Way to obtain Kettle and Fire bone broths
To be able to truly assess the grade of Kettle and Fire bone broths, we have to look at the ingredients.
According to Kettle and Open fire, all their bone broths are organic filled up with bones (knuckle, patella, femur, and feet bone fragments) and vegetables, sea salt, and herbs.
Their bone broths do NOT contain any:
Artificial ingredients
This means you won’t suffer any adverse side effects from consuming Kettle and Fire bone broths due to the safe ingredients not containing artificial substances, preservatives or additives.
It’s also Gluten-free, Non-GMO, organic, dairy-free, and soy-free which ticks all my containers as it pertains to a high-quality broth perfect for my healthy diet.
Another point that I like about Kettle and Fire bone broths is the long shelf life which emphasizes the meticulous packaging ensuring that the product stays fresh and stable throughout its lifetime.
Source of the Bone
Emphasis should be produced on how the chickens and bovine used in the creation process of the bone broth are hormone-free and antibiotic-free which is important in maintaining a clean and healthy diet.
The cows and chickens are raised in small family farms that do not partake in the utilization of added hormones and antibiotics thus satisfying the safety levels of Kettle and Fire bone broths.
If you don’t know the effects added hormones and antibiotics have on you, I highly recommend scanning this article published by the united states Countrywide Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health titled “Risk Assessment of HGH and Antimicrobial Residues in Meat”.
Quite simply, stay clear from added hormones and antibiotics – they’re a large no as it pertains to living a healthy life (and besides, you only get one life after all!).
A Natural Source of Collagen
According to Kettle and Fire’s website, they simmer their “100% grass-fed bone fragments with organic substances for 20+ hours to draw all the collagen, proteins and amino acids from the bones into [their] broth. The effect is a bone broth that’s wealthy, delicious, and has 19x more collagen than the closest competition (as qualified by an independent lab)”.
So all that noises fine and dandy and if what they say is, in fact, the truth and not only a marketing sham, well then, that’s a pretty good account of their quality.
Disclaimer: It’s hard for me personally to pinpoint if the collagen from the bone broth has been effective although I really do like the idea of it being there. I am guilty to be just a little narcissistic and using some healthy diet collagen products on a regular basis so it’s hard for me to state that the collagen from Kettle and Fire bone broths have resulted in my skin looking pretty.
Price of Kettle and Fire Bone Broths
What astonishes me is how Kettle and Fire bone broths come at a reasonable price tag given the quality you receive so when comparing with other bone broths on the market.

Owning the JURA Impressa A9

The Impressa A9 from JURA is a sleek super-automatic machine that’s right at home on small countertops given its compact design. The first feature that draws our attention is the TFT touchscreen display, which lets you swipe through the 12 programmable drink options easily. The links here support this site as affiliates. The display alone makes the A9 the perfect asset for any beginner or convenience-seeker. There’s no need for instructions; simply the vision of the drink you want, and watch it brew. Beans are ground fresh for each drink with JURA's Aroma+ conical burr grinder, which is faster and quieter thanks to the improved cutting angle of the burrs. JURA’s Pulse Extraction Process impresses, brewing drinks using short pulses of water throughout the brewing process to extract even greater aroma. We’ve found that the A9 really shines with milk drinks. JURA’s integrated frother siphons milk for steaming automatically and dispenses it directly into your cup.

To ensure the longevity of the machine and the quality of its beverages, the Impressa A9 features a number of automated rinsing cycles that run after beverages are prepared to keep the brewing and milk circuits clean. There are also additional cleaning programs that can be accessed through the touch screen menu. Additionally, you can program the A9 with your water hardness to be alerted when the time comes for you to run the descaling cycle. When one of JURA’s Clearyl Blue water filters are installed in the 1 L reservoir, you won’t need to worry about scale at all. This little guy is as powerful as it is compact. It’s perfect for a single user or a couple, and incredibly easy to use. For higher capacities and even more drink options, consider a machine from JURA’s E or J Series.

Touch Screen Controls

Jura A9 Touchscreen ControlThe Impressa A9 features a full-color touch screen display that makes navigating and programming your drink options easier than ever. The color TFT display incorporates touch technology allowing you to see the beverage and touch to select it. Intuitively slide and touch to select your beverage and dial in your preferred coffee temperature, strength and volume settings. Colorful drink icons make it easier than ever for you and your guests to navigate the menu. The Jura A9 Impressa One Touch is fast and super convenient.

Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.) Brewing

The A9 employs JURA’s innovative Pulse Extraction Process brewing system. As opposed to a constant flow, water is instead pulsed through the grounds in short intervals that extract greater intensity and aroma while shortening the overall brew time. With P.E.P., espresso and ristretto can be prepared with greater clarity and flavor than ever before.

Aroma+ Grinder

Jura A9 Aroma GrinderThe A9 comes equipped with JURA's Aroma+ grinder, which features a specialized grinding chamber designed to reduce noise and cut down on grind times. It can be adjusted on a continuous scale to let you fine-tune your grind as needed, or skipped over entirely for pre-ground coffee brewing using the integrated bypass doser. By improving the cutting angle to stainless steel burrs, Jura has increased grind speed significantly. The resulting coffee flavor and aroma is preserved by grinding the coffee in half the time. Enjoy your coffee sooner with less noise.

Automated Cleaning and Maintenance

To extend its longevity and protect coffee flavor, the Impressa A9 features a full suite of automatic maintenance and rinsing programs. It can automatically rinse the coffee and milk systems and clean both your coffee circuit and milk circuits automatically. The machine can also be programmed with your water hardness to alert you when the machine needs to be descaled.

Fine Foam Technology

Jura A9 Fine Foam TechnologyThe dispensing spouts on the Jura A9 Impressa One Touch are unique, and height adjustable from 2.2″ to 5.4″ inches. In addition to two coffee spouts, there is a milk spout featuring Jura's Fine Foam Technology. This technology creates a finely textured milk foam with a long-lasting consistency, feather-light and soft as a cloud it makes the perfect cappuccino.

Specialty Coffee Drinks

Jura A9 Specialty Coffee DrinksTwelve options to choose from on the elegant and easy to use touchscreen: 1 or 2 Coffees, 1 or 2 Espressos, 1 or 2 Ristrettos, Cappuccino, Latte Macchiato, hot water, milk foam, or select from one of the Jura A9’s two new specialty coffee drinks: Cappuccino Doppio and Latte Macchiato Doppio. An extra shot of espresso takes these new drinks to the next level.

Key Features:

Top innovation: P.E.P.® for espresso and ristretto of outstanding barista quality

JURA has perfected the complete brewing process for short specialty coffees. That's why the A9 prepares these beverages to the high standard you would expect in a coffee bar. The Pulse Extraction Process (P.E.P.®) developed by JURA optimizes the extraction time. To make a ristretto or espresso, it forces the hot water through the ground coffee at short intervals. This process allows the flavors of the coffee to fully develop. With eight intensity levels, coffee lovers can customize their coffee just the way they like it.
Personalize the Jura Impressa A9 One Touch by saving your four favorite specialty coffee drinks on the start screen – and then activate preparation at any time with a gentle touch. Fill the Jura coffee machine bean chamber with whole bean coffee for a true bean-to-cup experience that’s freshly ground, not capsuled.

Peaberry Coffee Discount offering

peaberry special volcanica

It's the first week of Summer 2019! Drop in for a smooth and delicious peaberry coffee. For a limited time take advantage of 10% OFF every peaberry offering. 

Peaberry coffee beans are a unique coffee bean that has a much richer flavor. The peaberry is only in 5% of the crop that is manually removed from the rest of the coffee harvest. The flavor of the peaberry tends to be finer quality than the rest of the crop and is desired by coffee connoisseurs. A typical coffee bean splits apart into two halves which is why they have a flat side. The peaberry does not split and grows like a pea that contains a more flavorful taste.


Extra 10% OFF Peaberry Coffee Category.

The peaberry is not a berry but a special bean to brew yourself a delicious cup of coffee. If you've heard the term before, perhaps you're wondering what is a peaberry, and what makes them so special?
A peaberry (also called caracol, or “snail” in Spanish) is a naturally grown version of the coffee bean inside its cherry. Normally coffee beans grow two to a fruit, flat against each other like halves of a peanut, but a funny thing happens in about 5% of the world's coffee, and a bean is born an only child.
The peaberry beans are spoiled by not having to share with anybody else. They tend to be smaller, denser, and, let's face it, just a little bit cuter than their flat cousins. Coffee snobs think they taste noticeably sweeter and have more flavor than standard-issue beans.
Occasionally, growers will hand-select the tiny mutants for a special sale, sometimes at a premium
Because there's no way to tell from looking at the cherry itself whether there's a single- or double-header inside, these little guys need to be hand-sorted after picking and processing in order to be sold separately. As a result, in many cases, the peaberries are sold for roasting right alongside their normal counterparts. Occasionally, growers will hand-select the tiny mutants for a special sale, sometimes at a premium—not only because of their taste but also because of the amount of labor involved, as well as their relative rarity.
Are you a peaberry person?
