I really really really hope they DO invite you to join them, because that would just be awkward!
Good luck on them coming out to your liking, I can imagine the "Pressure" LoL get it... pressure.....anyways, good luck!

Yea, they just don't realize that you can't do that many at one time. You could ask them if they need them all at once. If they don't then tell them you will freeze the remainder and do them when needed, given a couple days advance warning.

Yea, what smoke king said!

strange behavior

i would make the ribs as best as i could this time. who knows, they may have something cool in return. they could be that generous. if they just consume them and only invite you to join them for dinner, that would be a red flag, they are just assuming you love to cook so much that it is fun for you and less work for them.
if the latter is the case there is still no reason to make enemies with them or be rude. just wait until they dump another huge task on you. do what you want with what is given. when they come by to collect their bounty simply infom them another nieghbor smelled the cooking, came over with some friends and ate it all up. of course they would understand being so generous and all.

good luck pac.

what about getting a large stock pot and jsut doing the slow simmer when you have that many ribs? Thats usually what I do. and then I sear them on the grill later.

I want to stick with two methods I am at least a little familiar with ghetto, but thanks for the suggestion.
This will be good practice on someone else's food

ok pacanis - you know that cute little house down the street? The one that's for sale...been on the market for awhile????? Well, we've gotten together and bought it. We'll all be settled in no time. One small problem...the kitchen had to be turned into a bedroom/bathroom combo (you know - we NEEDED an extra one with what, 15 of us moving in) so we won't be able to cook. I suggest you get a couple more pressure cookers...you may as well be ready. Might as well get a couple more crockpots too!

Hey, I would do it too and I would love doing it...I've done it...especially when smoking something.
