Double Snake Method BBQ Ribs Process

Double Snake Method BBQ Ribs Process


Our Snake Method BBQ video was extremely popular so thanks to all for watching.  One thing we realized is the Snake Method is great if you've go 5 or 6 hours to stand around barbecuing.  But what if you've only got 3 or 4 and it's getting close to dark.  No one wants to stand outside in the cold flipping tri tip or hamburgers even if it is BBQ.  So, for that reason we authored a new video based on what we call the "Double Snake Method." 

This method works exceptionally well and we use it often.  This method allows us to achieve maximum smoke in half the time with even heating and grilling.  How does it work?   Effectively, charcoal is laid out in a two row layer trailing around outer ring of the grill then a second set of briquettes just like the first is laid out on the opposite side of the grill.   Afterward smoking chips either, hickory, red oak, apple wood, pecan wood or other are laid on top of the those charcoal briquettes such that when lit from the starter stack the major portion of smoke will be delivered at the front end of the process.  As the heat gradually moves down the rows of charcoal additional chunks of smoke wood are burned at specific time depending on placement.  If you want less smoke or you want it later in the cycle then you can either middle load or end load your wood chunks as they are spread out across the charcoal.

The Snake Method requires effective usage of managing heat

Heat is one of the biggest factors along with a reasonable selection of the meat to be smoked. All meats can be smoked but time is the most important element in the process or at having an idea of how long a meat should be cooked or subjected to smoke.

In this BBQ video we use our grill to smoke Beef Ribs and Chicken. The process takes us just over 3 hours using the Double Snake Method. We walk you through the process also we give some insight into managing the cooking process and the results associated with grilling. Leaving meats too long on the grill or in too much smoke can produce toughness and bitterness. We show you a simple way to add back moisture to further tenderize the meat and to assist in the cooking process.

We also use our own products in the cooking process as well we discuss the addition of a spray of Apple Cider vinegar mixed with Pomegranate Juice which is necessary to keep the ribs moist and supple. In this video we use our Jake's Memphis Blues Dry Rub
