What's Cookin' Sunday Oct 2?

Another Sunday, another meal planned in advance.
Week four of Pacanis' Personal Pigskin Challenge has my Browns playing Tennessee, so it will be "Memphis Style" BBQ'd ribs. From what I gather, this will differ from my usual ribs because the (vinegar based) sauce will be served on the side, not cooked on the ribs. The rub will also have more of a paprika influence. And the ribs will be mopped, something I never do, with a vinegar and cider mixture. They are marinating right now in vinegar, cider, hot sauce, garlic, bay leaves and salt. They will be smoked using straight hickory.
Also on the menu will be some beans cooked in the BBQ and I'll probably round things out with some moink balls.

But before all this, I will turn the extra lamb burger I grilled Friday into a loco moco. I've already got the rice soaking.

Anyone else have a plan yet?

I'll be making low fat granola for breakfasts this week and for dinner I'm making a pork loin with an apricot coffee glaze.

How do you make your pilaf, Andy?
Do you add the ingredients to a rice cooker along with the rice and liquid, or saute them, then add your rice and broth to the same pan? Or something different?

Not sure yet what it'll be. Possibly chicken. DH had to go into work today because the contractors had crews at 2 work sites and an engineer needs to be available onsite whenever a crew is working. Not sure how long he'll have to be there. Still recouping from football yesterday (in the cold windy stadium). All I know is sandwiches for lunch!

I don't use a rice cooker, Fred. I'll post the recipe in the rice section.

Thanks. I didn't realize a pilaf could be so simple. I always think of veggies, shrimp or other items mixed in with the rice.
