    Baby Back Ribs (MMmmmmm)

    This is from last Summer, but it seems I never posted it:

    I thought it was time to get rid of the other two Baby Backs in my freezer.
    These were two of the four I got when I finally found some for under $5 per pound.
    Got these for $3.99.

    So, Here we go:
    Day #1 (4 PM):
    Remove Membranes, Rinse & Dry.
    Coat with Yellow Mustard & top with Pork Rub.
    Wrap in plastic wrap, and into fridge for the night.

    Day #2 (Smoking)
    11:00 AM---------------------Fill two rows of AMNPS, with 80% Hickory/20% Apple pellets, and light one end.
    11:30 AM---------------------Pre-heat MES 40 to 220˚.
    12 Noon----------------------Put Ribs on rack in #2 position.
    3:00 PM----------------------Put in foil pan, coat with foil mixture (see below), cover tightly with foil, and put back in smoker.
    4:15 PM----------------------Open foil up.
    4:45 PM----------------------Cover & remove.

    Foil Mix:
    Ken's Honey-Teriyaki Marinade-------------------------1 ounce
    JD Old #7 BBQ Sauce------------------------------------3 ounces
    Apple Juice------------------------------------------------4 ounces
    Melted Butter---------------------------------------------2 TBS

    Heat mixture in Nukulator, and stir real well before using.

    These tasted Awesome!!!


    Coated with Yellow Mustard & Rub:

    Temp---49˚----Winds 10 to 15 MPH----Let's get started

    Here is my set-up in my MES 40.
    Note that my ET 732 probe hangs in a position even with the MES sensor (clean circle on back wall of smoker--right side).
    That is how I keep the heat in my smoker even from left to right.
    If the left side gets hotter or colder than the right side, I adjust that plate you see above the water pan, on the right:

    No need to open the door to peek:

    Foiled after 3 hours & back in:

    Separate burning pellets to save the unburned----used less than one row in 3 hours:

    Freshly opened foil:

    MMMMMMmmmmmm--------Big Tall Stack of Goodies!!!

    Bear's first helping---Back for more Ribs shortly!!!

    Outstanding job there, GI. Thanks for reminding me I have a rack of BB's in the deep freeze I should do. Think I'll head out & pull them to slowly defrost...Willie
