The good thing about lump is that it goes out fast and you can re-use it...even though it's more expensive, I think you get more cooking time with it compared to briquettes. I could be wrong with the Weber but it's definitely true with insulated grills. Keep an eye out for deals or sales on Fogo lump. It's really good...all big pieces.

Short ribs last night...It's been so long since I've made these! Incredible!

PS. When you can't remove it give it some crosshatch marks and rub with oil and it will help it cook away.

 

This is what I did....I scored the bone and meat

three racks of baby backs, atomic buffalo turds and fresh caught lingcod this past weekend for Father's Day. Also fresh caught dungeness crab. 

 

Interesting problem I had with the ribs...have never had this happen before. I bought the Costco three pack of baby backs that are sealed in plastic. As I went to prepare them I discovered that the membrane was too thin to remove. Every time I got a handle on it, it would just tear. I tried and tried and no matter what I did I could not peel it off. Usually I can grab the thing and peel it all off in one go. At one point I started questioning if there even was a membrane at all. But there was; it was easier to see after they were cooked. I eventually gave up and went about my cook. No poor results because of it, but it was very frustrating as I have never cooked ribs with the membrane still on. It was so thin that it was hardly noticeable when eating.

 

Has anyone experienced this?

So, basically if you're using a tumbler you have to fill the entire thing up to get to critical mass? I think that's whats wrong with mine; it's only about half full of half composted shredded leaves.
