    We came home yesterday and our oldest daughter had been shopping and surprised us with 3 packs of 1/2 rack of baby back ribs from the Kroger (marked down to about $1.25 per half rack I might add).  Well, guess what's on the menu to night....

    Just getting started on the WSM with a mustard base to hold the rub and one of my milder rubs.

    Cut up and soon to be gone.   I thought I would get a shot of the smoke ring on one of the other two, but the family scarfed them up and ran out of the room before I could clean off my hands and grab the camera.  I had already added some extra sauce to mine.  Had a gooooooood ring though.  Smoked over hickory and apply with lump charcoal.

    Thanks guys, it was tasty for sure.

    I thought about pecan, but had some hickory and apple on the porch in containers from the last smoke (getting lazy in my old age - pecan was in wire baskets in the basement).

    That is one plus about being in Georgia.  We have pecan trees all over the place.  I have a standing request for friends & co-workers to let me know any time they have a limb blow down or need to be trimmed. I have a co-worker who's family runs an apple orchard (woo-hoo!!!).  There is an added plus of knowing that fist sized chunk came from a limb at a friends yard which you made into chunks yourself.  I've been told the pecan shells work good as a smoke wood also, but you have to add them more often (unlike a good chunk of wood).  I've not tried shells myself though.

    And for those of you who have never tried pecan, Owlcreesmoker4 is right.  It's a great wood to use, and is probably the one wood I think can be used with just about anything.
