It was a lot of work, but worth it in the end. :)

Smoked these butts up last weekend so I could concentrate on the ribs and fixins' today...

http://www.barbecuebible.com/board/view ... hp?t=23544

Those butts hit the freezer and I pulled them out last night. I heated them up today with a little bit of apple juice...tasted just as good, if not better than when they were freshly pulled.

Then this morning, I threw these 3 racks of baby backs on the smoker. Smoked them up with a mix of Cherry, Maple and Hickory woods...

One of the sides I chose was Big Moe Cason's recipe for Peach BBQ Baked Beans... http://www.grilling.com/big-moeaes-peac ... moe-cason/

I did a few things different though...I didn't use the red bell pepper, used another BBQ Sauce instead of the Blues Hog BBQ Sauce...I can't get that locally...and I also smoked the peaches today rather than grill them like the recipe says. I prepped the beans last night, so all I had to do today was smoke the peaches up...

A good dose of bacon and onions are used for the beans...

Image

After the peaches were done, I coursely chopped them up and added them to the pool of beans....

Image

Here are the beans finished....

Image

I ended up leaving one rack of Baby Backs dry, without sauce. I did place the other two racks back on the egg and glazed them to finish...

Image

The ribs on the left are sauced and the ones on the right just have the rub.

Image

The pulled pork heated up very nicely...

Image

And I took SCmustardman's advice and whipped up some Blue Cheese and Bacon Coleslaw.... http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2008/ ... e_coleslaw

This recipe was simple, yet deeeelicious! :)

Image

Image

Everything turned out killer...especially Big Moe's Baked Beans and the Blue Cheese and Bacon Coleslaw.

Image

Lots of leftovers, so guess what I'll be having for the next few days? :wink:

Happy Birthday Mrs Dyal!! Glad to see he treats you right. I know you put up with a lot. :wink:

Excellent looking spread Dyal. I'm full but you still made me hungry.

I can't remember, do you have a FoodSaver? Doesn't sound like you reheated them in FS bags. Therefor I am curious how you reheated your pulled pork?

Dyal,

What a spread :D :D And of course, Happy Birthday to Mrs Dyal!!!! all of that looks awfully good. I have to admit, the Blue cheese and bacon coleslaw looks killer. I have a big cook coming up on Wed/Thur and think I'll have to include that as part of the meal.

Thanks for sharing,
Jimmy

Dyal my friend, I must tell you how much I lament not being able to make your invitation. Your whole meal looks and sounds irresistible and I feel deprived! That meal deserves and gets the wave.

Great looking spread Dyal!!
I’m sure Mrs. Dyal had a great birthday.
I also make blue cheese slaw, but never added bacon to it. I’ll have to borrow that idea from you :)

I placed the pulled pork in two separate foil pans, spritzed/poured some apple juice over the top, foiled the pans up and heated everything in the oven at around 275 degs until it was heated through. Worked out just fine that way.

Thanks, Jimmy! Don't forget to not add the bacon until right before you serve it, to keep the bacon from getting mushy. SCmustardman gave me recipe and that tip, and the tip worked out very well for me.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments and Mrs. Dyal says thanks to everyone for the happy birthday wishes. :)

Thanks for the tip about the bacon, I wouldn't have thought about that. After talking to my wife about this, I'm certain this will be part of our menu on Thursday!

That is one fine Birthday feast!! I really liked the blue cheese and bacon Cole slaw. I love blue cheese in my slaw, but hadn't thought about the bacon-- seems like an easy conclusion to me too! :lol:

Seriously... wicked good eats!

Great job! Did the peaches add a noticeable sweetness and/or fruit flavor to the beans?

It gave it a sweetness, but not a big peachy flavor. It's a fantastic recipe...I'm eating cold baked beans for lunch as I type... :lol: The smokiness is awesome.
