Baby Back Ribs

For those with non-smoker gas grills...
I picked up one of those perforated smoke tubes from Amazon.

1. Fill smoker tube with flavored pellets of your choice.
2. With a propane torch, light the open end of the tube for about 1 minute. Blow it out and let sit for 2 minutes.
3. Lay the lit tube on it's side on the grates.  I use one side of the grill  and light the burner on low underneath it.
4. Remove the membrane from the bone side of the rib rack
5. Rub the rib rack with your favorite spices.
6. Place the ribs, bone down,  on the top shelf (indirect heat) of the grill and add a cookie sheet of water on the bottom grates for moisture.
7. Cook for 1-1/2 hrs @ 225
8. Remove ribs and place them on a double layer of foil. pour 1/2 bottle of your favorite beer on the ribs.
9. Cover the ribs with foil and seal the edges.
10. Return to the top shelf of the grill, bone down, and cook @ 350 for 1/2 hr.
11. Flip the ribs and cook for another 1/2 hr.
12. Remove ribs from foil and coat with your favorite sauce (Sweet Baby Rays) and return to grill to cook until sauce had "browned" (approx. 15-20 min) flipping as desired.
13. Remove ribs, cut between each bone and serve

Sour Cream Cheesecake

8 - 10 Servings
Total Time: 2 hrs. 30 min.


33 graham cracker squares, crumbled
1 stick unsalted butter, melted, plus additional, for brushing the pan
1 tablespoon sugar

20 ounces cream cheese
1 1/4 cups sour cream
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 yolks
1/3 cup heavy cream


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. 
Brush some of the melted butter around a 9 by 3-inch cake pan. 
Adhere parchment to the bottom and the sides.

In a small bowl, combine crumbled graham crackers, the remaining melted butter, and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the bottom of the parchment-lined pan. 
Place remaining crumbs on a sheet pan and bake both the crust and the remaining mixture for 10 minutes. Cool. 
Save additional crumb mixture for sides.

In a mixer with a paddle attachment, beat sour cream for 10 seconds. 
Add the cream cheese and sugar and mix on low for 30 seconds and then turn up to medium. 
Scrape the bowl.

In a separate container, combine vanilla, eggs, yolks, and heavy cream. 
With the mixer on medium, slowly pour the liquid mixture in. 
When half of it is incorporated, stop and scrape. Continue adding the mixture until the rest of the ingredients are incorporated. 
Once completely combined, pour into the cooled crust.

Lower oven temperature to 250 degrees F. 
Place cheesecake into a preheated water bath, in the oven for 1 hour. 
Turn the oven off and open the door for one minute. Close the door for one more hour. 
Remove the cheesecake from the water bath and place in the refrigerator for 6 hours to completely cool before serving.

When ready to serve, place the entire cake pan into a hot water bath for about 15 seconds. 
Unmold onto a cake round or serving dish. 
Take the remaining graham cracker mixture and press into the sides of the cake.
