Lucinda Williams (Live), Car Wheels on a Gravel Road tour, 1998, Austin City Limits

Lucinda at the peak of her glorious powers, touring her Masterpiece, with a CRACKING band bringing the songs to life ... she plays nearly all of Car Wheels, and the selection of older classics she chose to mix in to the set was spot-on ... this concert is STELLAR ... absolute must see for all music fans ...

The links to 'Playlists' of Youtube vid's doesn't post right on DU (only the first song will auto-play), but if you just click This Here that'll queue up the entire set of 16 songs ... and you can thank me later. I have the actual DVD and the sound is much better than Youtube, but, this is what we got, doesn't sound BAD at all but the real disc ... sounds freaking KILLER

Drop Dead Gorgeous ...

My decidedly Un-PC Sunday Dinner ... I'm grillin' a rack of St. Louis Style Ribs

My decidedly Un-PC Sunday Dinner ... I'm grillin' a rack of St. Louis Style Ribs

Sorry my porcine friends ... I try to eat you only 1 time a month or so ... It's the best I can do ... cause you're delicious creatures ... wish you were treated better

So today it's Ribs, along with grilled-in-the-husk corn on the cob (they'll have butter, salt and pepper), and baked potatoes (they'll have butter, sour cream, chives, salt & pepper + some cayenne).

I used indirect style on my Weber, with just one of the two charcoal bins filled (using Kingsford Briquettes, and just before grilling, threw on a few chunks 'o Hickory wood) so as to keep Temps low and slow, and to get some nice smoke going.

Threw on the rack ... temp was running at 250F for first 1:00, and at that point, threw on the corn (after a 15 min saltwater bath in the kitchen). The bbq temp dropped to about 200F as I had bottom vents almost closed, and the corn of course has lots of moisture ... then I let the ribs and corn smoke/grill indirectly for about another 1:45.

At that point, I removed Ribs from grill and put 'em in dutch oven along w/chunks of Honeycrisp Apples, with a foil seal in addition to the lid, in order to soften 'em up by some steaming action. They're presently roasting at 225F in my indoor oven for about 2:30, along with a couple of large Bakers, rubbed in butter and kosher salt. The corn has remained on the grill as it's only running at 200F still, and corn in the husk can basically cook forever at low heat like that, all the while subtly soaking up smoky/hickory flavor.

15 mins before the end of the end of 2:30 that the ribs are in the oven, I remove corn (still in husk) from grill and put it in the oven, then I fire up about 20 more fresh briquettes in the chimney starter, so I'll have something HOT to work with for the last step.

Once those are hot (about 15 mins), I dump 'em into the charcoal bin, along with any remaining ones from the first go (the ones already in the bin). I then remove the rack of ribs from the oven and brush them with some delicious smoky/sweet Barbeque Sauce (going /with Mrs. Renfro's Chipotle Barbeque Sauce today).

Then I crank heat of oven up to 325F to finish potatoes while I do the rest of my 'stuff', but remove the corn, and remove the ears from their husks, and brush them with olive oil.

At this point, I grill the exposed corn, along with the sauced ribs, indirectly (but with relatively high heat, I open all the vents on the grill) for about 15 mins ... this is to set the sauce on the ribs, and get the corn good and hot, too.

At this point, the fresh charcoal should be quite hot, so I dump it from the bin onto half of the barbie, then grill the corn over the direct heat, about 5 mins per side, with the ribs still off to the side. Then I switch their places, with the ribs for the first time 'meat side down' in order to sear on the barbeque sauce, about 4-5 mins on this piece.

Then ... after this final sear of the sauce, we're ready to eat!

Why Trump tweets in 3rd Person ... I know some of you already know, but ...

He does this because he's hoping news people will read his tweets verbatim (which they do), and thus (some) listeners will perceive what they're hearing ... as though it's 'factual' rather than just Trumps own claim.

"Nobody has shown that I colluded with Russia"
"Nobody has shown that Donald Trump colluded with Russia"

... when read verbatim by a newsperson. The former case, it's obviously Trump saying it. The latter case comes off sounding like the opinion of a third party, and hence 'more valid' in the listeners mind.
