Recipe: How to cook the perfect rib roast

A finished prime rib roast sits on the grill. (Photo ©Chris Wilkins/Texas BBQ Posse) For me, nothing compares to cooking a prime rib roast on the grill. It’s a tasty cut of meat, always fun to prepare, and sometimes there can be a bit of adventure. And let’s not forget the cost. For this cook, we special ordered a four-bone, seven-pound rib roast from our neighborhood H-E-B in Austin, Tx. Price: About $85. Not a fortune, but certainly enough to keep the mind focused on proper preparation and technique, even after a glass or two of wine on a sunny…

How the sausage is made…

Sometimes it isn’t pretty. See that crumpled Nestea can at the lip of the truck bed in the photo above? On a barbecue tour, after five stops, eight hours of eating, and an occasional beer, that can is called a tripod. Give Barbecue Posse founder Chris Wilkins credit for innovative thinking under stress, even if he loses a few style…

A little posse peer pressure

As an appetizer at Clark’s Outpost in Tioga, the Barbecue Posse ordered lamb fries and passed them around. There were some snickers. Lamb fries are lamb testicles, breaded and fried. “I’m not eating those,” said David Woo, a barbecue posse veteran and Dallas Morning News photographer. Peer pressure, though, is a powerful force. Don’t be chicken, the posse told Woo.…

The G Man comes up short again

Gary Barber, the Texas BBQ Posse’s biggest eater, caught flak during the Marshall Cooper BBQ fest for once again coming up short in the end. Gary, aka G, started building his legend on our first BBQ tour to central Texas, as described by Dallas Morning News writer and posse founding member Gary Jacobson. “Think of the fullest you have ever…

Posse favorites: Clark’s french fried corn on the cob

Editor’s note: this joint is now closed. Clark’s Outpost BBQ in Tioga offers a unique side dish to go with your ribs and brisket. And no, we aren’t talking about their world-famous lamb fries, aka the cowboy’s favorite. We took a road trip to Clark’s last month, to do our posse duty of sampling various smoked meats while passing on…

The secret is out: It’s Yum Yum wood

Every pit master has secrets. Eddie Brown at Off The Bone in Forest Hill, the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s top-ranked barbecue joint, is no different. What kind of wood do you use in your smoker, we asked Brown on our recent Tarrant County tour. “Yum Yum,” he said. What’s that? “Can’t tell you, it’s a secret,” he said. “But it starts…

Woe is Woo on Fort Worth tour

Regular readers of our barbecue chronicles will remember David Woo, pictured below, the great wheelman on our East Texas tour in February. Newspapers and websites across the country picked up the story, which lauded him, and his GPS, for helping us navigate rural roads. On our Fort Worth Tour in April, however, Woo’s GPS failed him. He followed its instructions…
