Was testing a sauce and while smoking meat for Memorial Day I couldn’t help knocking out a couple 5 ribs. I built an electric smoker to be able to smoke at lower temps and not have to tend to a fire. There is definitely different flavors that come off low and slow finished meat and the appliance/technique used to cook it. Use what you got, everything but the microwave taste great. Frankly we are always smoking TB’s stuff and it’s a time saver not having to tend 3 pits. Just plop in the oven and it’s ready after our daily “pepper cleanup”. This was a special rib smoke and were cooked at 188 degrees for 8 hours. The fried oysters took more prep time but well worth the effort. I’ll cook them 1st down below.
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 2
Oyster Materials
  • 1 cup oysters medium (about 12 total)
  • 1 pack cheap (thin) bacon.
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp Cottonmouth (optional)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 40 ounce peanut oil or lard. Enough to cover an oyster.
Rib Materials
  • 1 slab of ribs or however many you want.
  • ¼ cup Sowflakes
Oyster Construction
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Drain or pat dry oysters
  3. Most southerners use corn meal when frying. This dinner didn’t. If you want sum southern comfort divide the flour and substitute with corn meal. Like ½ cup flour and ½ cup cornmeal OR ¼ flour and ¾ cornmeal. Just as long as both together = 1 cup.
  4. In a fry pan or your best pan to fry in, heat oil up to 375.
  5. In a bowl add flour, water, Cottonmouth, salt, baking soda, and whisk together.
  6. Dip oyster in batter and gently lay in HOT oil. Do max 5 at a time to retain heat. Adjust heat accordingly.
  7. After about 3 minutes or until golden brown pull from oil and place in metal strainer or on paper towels.
  8. Cut your cheap bacon in half.
  9. Set up a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and grate on top.
  10. Lay piece of bacon on board and roll oyster in the middle.
  11. Pin end of bacon into the oyster and place on cookie sheet rack.
  12. Once all oysters are rolled put in oven for 20 minutes.
  13. Pull from oven and flip oysters over 180 bottom up.
  14. Place back in oven and cook additional 15 minutes. Done
Ribs Low-n-Slow
  1. Get your smoker or whatever you're using to cook ribs with to 188 degrees.
  2. Add wood chips if using. I did these with mesquite because it’s my favorite. Pecan and oak wood are typical around here.
  3. Cover meat side with Sowflakes. If you can do this a day ahead that would be great. I didn’t…
  4. Place in smoker with temperature gauge to regulate in pit heat.
  5. Try not to open pit too much. At 8 hours they will be tender and ready!
  6. You know what to do… get after it and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

The white sauce is a high dollar blue cheese dressing and the hot sauce is a test sauce similar to what’s on restaurant tables. Worked great, really great 😉
