Tons of cooking shows

I am a chef, I love to cook wonderful dishes for everybody I know.

Being a chef, you would think I would not want to watch Hell's Kitchen, Chopped, Master Chef, Top Chef, Next Food Network Star, Extreme Chef, Next Iron Chef, Kitchen Nightmares, Bar Rescue, Restaurant Impossible, Dinner Impossible, and Bitchin Kitchen, but I love them!

I will watch ANYTHING about cooking ANYTIME of the day or night, even after working a 10 hour shift as a head chef.

I guess it's my obsession, my love, my life.

Grilling time

Gosh, I cannot get enough of grilling when the temperature rises above 90.  Not wanting to heat my house during the summer, the grill does come in handy, plus the taste is great.

At least once a summer, I create a dry rub for my pork spare ribs ( on sale of course) and then grill away.

I use:
Fresh black pepper
garlic powder
onion powder
brown sugar

Make a paste and rub on several pork ribs.  Refrigerate for 2 hours.  Light the grill and over low-medium heat, cook ribs for about 15 minutes, turn and cook other side for 10-15 minutes.  Use a GOOD meat thermometer.  Ribs are done at 170 degrees. Slice along bone to separate, place on platter and serve with a good homemade BBQ sauce.
