In a bowl, combine the garlic, salt, brown sugar, smoked paprika, chile powder, black pepper, sage, thyme, dry mustard, cumin, coriander, ginger, and cayenne pepper. Generously coat the ribs with the rub then wrap each slab in a double layer of plastic wrap and let them sit at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. If you have a flat metal cooling rack, arrange it in the baking sheet and place the ribs, bone side down, on the rack. If you don't have a rack, place the ribs, bone side down, directly on the foil-lined baking sheet. Bake the ribs until the meat is tender and starting to pull away from the bones, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. While ribs bake in oven, prepare the sauce (instructions below).
Depending on the size of your grill, place 1 or 2 slabs, bone side down, over the heat and brush the fat-covered side generously with barbecue sauce. Grill the ribs, covered, for 2 minutes. Flip the slab over, brush the bone side with sauce, and grill, covered, until the sauce on the fat-covered side is caramelized and lightly charred, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the slab over and continue grilling, covered, until the sauce on the bone side is caramelized and lightly charred, 1 minute. Transfer the ribs to a cutting board and let them rest for 10 minutes. If necessary, repeat the grilling and glazing process with the second slab of ribs. Cut between the ribs and serve immediately with plenty of barbecue sauce on the side.
In a heavy, medium saucepan over moderately low heat, cook the bacon until the fat renders and the bacon starts to brown, about 10 minutes—do not let the bacon get crispy.
Add the onions and continue cooking, covered and stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and translucent, about 10 minutes.
Add the garlic, sage, and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute.
Add the smoked paprika, chile powder, cumin, black pepper, and ginger and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Add the coffee, brown sugar, yellow mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar and stir well to combine. Raise the heat to moderate and bring the sauce to a boil, scraping the saucepan with a wooden spoon to remove any browned bits from the bottom.
Add the ketchup, hot sauce, and bay leaves, then lower the heat to moderately low and simmer the sauce until it's thick enough to coat the back of a spoon but isn't as thick as ketchup, about 30 minutes.
Taste the sauce and add more vinegar or hot sauce to taste and season with salt and pepper. Remove and discard the bay leaves.
Whisk together honey, mustard, vinegar, thyme, and pepper. Place pork tenderloin in a large zip-top bag and pour in honey mustard mixture. Squish around to make sure pork is completely covered. Refrigerate at least one hour.
Heat oven to 425F. Oil the baking dish lightly
Place pork on the dish, reserving the marinade. Roast it from 35 minutes to an hour, depending on the thickness of tenderloin. Check internal temperature at 30 minutes. Pork is done when a thermometer inserted into the center reads 145F. Remove from oven and leave alone for 10 minutes before slicing.
Place reserved marinade in small saucepan and boil for 5 to 10 minutes or until thickened. Add water ass needed to prevent sticking.
Serve pork and drizzle with the honey mustard sauce.
Salt all sides of the pork shoulder chunks. Heat vegetable oil in a pot over high heat. Brown pork shoulder pieces until surface is seared and crusty, about 3 or 4 minutes per side.
Transfer browned pork to a plate. Add onions to oil and reduce heat to medium and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook and stir about 2 minutes.
Add torn sage leaves; cook until onions soften and begin to brown, stirring frequently. Pour cider into pot; stir to deglaze bottom. Raise heat to high and bring to a boil. Stir in cider vinegar. Reduce heat to low.
Transfer pork shoulder pieces to cider mixture. Cover; simmer gently on low 1 hour. Remove lid and turn pieces over. Cover; simmer on low until meat is fork tender, 1 to 2 more hours. Transfer pork to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
Raise heat to high and bring sauce to a simmer. Whisk in heavy cream. Simmer until liquid is reduced by half and is slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes. Toss in a pinch of cayenne.
Transfer pork back to pot and reduce heat to low. Baste pork with sauce while it heats through and becomes perfectly tender, and the sauce is as thick as you want it, about 15 more minutes.
Season pork slivers with ¾ teaspoon of salt and the pepper and set aside.
Set a large pot over medium-high heat and add the sesame oil.
Once oil starts to shimmer, add the slivers of pork tenderloin. Cook until the pork is browned, 1½ to 2 minutes. Use tongs to turn the pork over and brown the other side, about 1 minute more. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
To the pot, add the sliced scallion whites and cook, stirring often, until soft, for 1 to 1½ minutes. Stir in the garlic, and once fragrant, after about 30 seconds, stir in the gochujang, gochugaru and tofu.
Add the kimchi, water, rice vinegar, soy sauce and remaining 1½ teaspoons of salt, bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to medium-low.
Simmer 20 minutes, return the pork to the pot and simmer for 1 minute more. Serve the soup in bowls sprinkled with the sliced green scallions with a heaping addition of steamed white rice.
Kimchi, gochujang and gochugaru are available in many supermarkets' international sections or at a local Korean or Asian grocer.
Place eggs in a large saucepan and fill with cool water. Slowly bring the water to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, remove the heat and cover the saucepan for 10 minutes.
Drain water and peel eggs shells from the hard-boiled eggs. Cut each hard-boiled egg in half, carefully scoop out yolks and place in a medium bowl. Set the egg whites on a serving plate, cut side up.
To the bowl with egg yolks, add mayonnaise, 3/4 of the chopped bacon (leaving the remainder for garnish), diced avocado, cilantro, lime juice, cayenne pepper, a pinch of kosher salt, and a few turns of black pepper.
Using a fork, mash and stir the yolks until all ingredients are well-combined. It won't be smooth, but you don't want any big chunks of yolk remaining. Season to taste with additional salt, lime juice, and cayenne pepper.
Transfer yolk mixture to a small zip top bag. Seal the bag, then cut off one of the corners to create a small hole for dispensing yolk mixture. Pipe the yolk mixture into the wells of each egg white.
Sprinkle with reserved chopped bacon and light dusting of cayenne pepper.
Heat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Scrub the potatoes clean, rub them will olive oil, and sprinkle them with salt. Prick the potatoes a few times with the tines of a fork. Arrange them a little ways apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 50-60 minutes, until they are completely soft when pierced with a fork and the skins are dry.
While the potatoes are baking, begin preparing the filling. Warm a skillet over medium heat and cook the bacon until most of the fat has rendered and the bacon has crisped to your liking. Remove the bacon bits with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
Pour off all but a teaspoon of the bacon fat. Cook the onions with a half teaspoon of salt until the onions are deep golden and caramelized. Stir in the garlic and cook for another thirty seconds. Remove from heat.
When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice them in half and scoop the insides into a medium-sized bowl. Leave a quarter inch or so of potato next to the skin. Mash the potatoes with the onions, garlic, bacon, sour cream, and about 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese. Give it a taste, and add more salt and pepper as you see fit.
Arrange the potato skins on the baking sheet. Divide the filling between all the skins and sprinkle the tops with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese. At this point, the potatoes can be baked right away, or refrigerated and baked later.
Bake for another 15-20 minutes, until the cheese has melted and the peaks of the mashed potatoes are crispy. Potatoes that were refrigerated may take a little longer. Serve straight off the baking sheet while still hot and bubbly. Leftovers will keep for up to a week.
