    My first lesson in butchering, Bbally style.

    Used his tutorial to make these 3 slabs of ribs...







    I could have swore I got pics while I was cutting them. I was surprised to not see them on camera disk when I took it out...

    I fought WIND all day. Never had this problem before, not even in that ice cold smoke I did. 52* was the high but the wind didn't give me 10 minutes of rest without attending to the smoker in some way...

    Anyway, they turned out just fine I think, and our guests just loved them!!










    I had 'pullback' which Bbally said shouldn't happen, but it did for me... probably cuz my temps were all over the place. But they were the PERFECT texture and moisture.


    Took a pic of the coals after the smoke, I always think this is a pretty site!!!

    Nicely done. Higher temps will cause pull back. But I bet it did not change the taste! Looks good![​IMG]

    I'm with Rick I like the pull back and it does give me a handle. But with or without they look great and I love the meatyness of those ribs. Do you think you can send some down here to Fla. The ribs here are like our deer small and almost meatless. [​IMG]

    I used Apple and hickory chunks with LUMP and some briquets thrown in there time to time.

    Dammmmmm. Thats a tree trunk in a bag. Did they just start carrying lump? I have never seen it there. How much a bag and how did you like it? Burn good?

    I think maybe $15 or $17 for 40lbs, I don't remember. but WOW, you get a couple HUGE pieces and when I threw them on they lasted pretty good.

    It's a NEW item I've never seen before
