    Hi All,

    I decided to smoke some Baby Backs and Spares yesterday to celebrate Memorial Day (who didn't? [​IMG]).  I'll keep the talkin' to a minimum so enjoy the slide show!

    BBRs and Spares from Costco


    Flap cut off, membrane removed, rub applied (rested overnight) and into the smoker they go!


    Spares ready to cut


    Spares sliced




    BBRs all sliced up


    A platter for the party.  Ribs for everyone![​IMG]


    The rub was spectacular!  It was something I just threw together and it was very good.  It is kind of mild with the right amount of spicyness and with all the fundamental ingredients.  The BBQ sauce was a mixture of JD Honey Smokehouse and Bullseye Original.  The local grocery had them on sale this weekend for 99 cents each.  I would have rather used Jeff's BBQ sauce because it rocks but I was running out of time.  I highly recommend it though!

    Have a great day!

    Hey Harold-nice q-vue. I've grabbed stuff out of the panty before to make up a quick up that turned out pretty good-I just wished afterwards that I make some notes so that I could duplicate the rub again.

    Jeff''s Rub is my go-to rub and this past weekend I did a bunch of ribs (5 racks). One one rack, I took about 3/4 cup of rub and added 1 tablespoon of chipotle chile powder to it. One of my sons-in-law sampled a rib off of that rack as his appetizer before supper and I asked him how it was. He said "Um-not bad, tastes just like your ribs always do-dang good." He then finished up the rib and his eyes got wide and he said "Dang-That's a nice kick of heat there at the end! I think you're on to something there, Pops!" And with that said, he grabbed a couple more of the spicy ribs and one of the regular rub ribs and a plate full of Ma Dutche's Baked Beans.

    Sorry there is no q-vue- cuz I ended up doing these ribs in the oven.  We had rain every day for a week along with some high winds. The winds rip the tarp off of my wood stack and every dang stick of wood was soaked. [​IMG]
