Big day of burgers, bikes and BBQ

Yesterday was a big day for Degüello BBQ and Bonzai Sports in Falls Church.  I’ve been working there part time since March of last year, and I handled food for the Triathlon Road Show.  Thanks to our volunteers from Booz Allen and my coworkers from the shop, I was able to crank out the following:

  • 100 burgers
  • 75 hot dogs and sausages
  • 50 chicken thighs
  • Six rack of pork ribs

It was a lot of fun to talk to manufacturer reps, customers and staff about bikes and ‘cue, and I think the chicken and ribs were especially good.  For the chicken, I braised boneless skinless thighs dusted with Pork Barrel BBQ All American Spice Rub in margarine filled steam pans in the Caldera until they reached 145F. Then I placed them on the Weber Kettle and finished them with Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce and one more light dusting of rub.

After I got home last night, I fired up the Weber Smokey Mountain and put on a “special” brisket injected with marinade and rubbed with Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express Rub.  I like to use pecan wood for smoke with the Dizzy Pig rub as the coffee from the rub goes great with the pecan smoke to create a great flavor profile.
