Fantastic job, Z! How many people were you feeding?

Those lamb ribs look really good. You should post them in this month's Block Party!

Did you put anything on the chickens or was that their natural color from the smoker? What kind of wood did you use?

Z you're cooking it up like you're expecting Texans for a feast! 8) Looks like you're feeding about 25 to 30 hungry folks (or 50 regular). Must of been one festive occasion my friend. :D

Wicked-looking spread, Z! The pics are almost as good as an invite to the actual event! :D

(Hint, hint....) :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Z, after the effort for a spread like this do you have a little down time where you don't grill for a few days? I know I'd probably take some time off to recharge.

+1 as I know I would too - that's a lot of work.

My own latest bit of downtime was for different reasons this week. The CG Outlaw is in pieces for repainting, and ironically I ran out of propane on both my main and spare tanks after a big cook on Sunday, but I'll be refilling them today. :D

Once again, Z, that's an incredible spread. It gets better every time I look at it! :cheers:

Thanks Trollby :D

Thanks Brad :D
Technically, these were rib chops, but if they qualify, I’d post them in the “Block Party”.
I only rubbed the chicken skin with butter and salt. I put the spices on the inside. I noticed long ago, that the rub on the chicken skin just burns and discolor the skin and don’t really add any flavor. So I only use butter and salt now. I used apple wood for smoke.

Thanks Bob-BQN :D
Good to see back posting :)
You’re right on the money! I was expecting about 25 people :)
And it was a very special occasion, my niece graduated from Medical school :)

Thanks CharredGriller :D

Thanks sroach :D
I’d rather do nothing else but spending time at the grill :)

Brad&CharredGriller,
Yes, after the clean up I was a little burned out and it took me a couple of week to get back to grilling. But when I look back at the pictures, I get tempted all over again and wish I was out there grilling again :D

Thanks again to all of you for the nice comments.

Yes - I'd say they qualify. :D
