Trying out some beef back ribs today and doing some chicken quarters just for extra food. It's a cool dark semi-rainy day, good day to sit eat BBQ picnic food (is that how you spell picnic? no matter how I try it looks wrong!) Gonna have veggies and bushes baked beans as side dishes. Maybe some type of bread too So, the ribs. I rubbed in a bunch of spice (garlic, onion, tenderizer, pepper, etc), then coated in spicy mustard. I know mustard is usually for pork but thought what the heck Here's the rub (pun intended lol) here's the rubbed ribs (say that 3 times fast) with mustard on them. Then I readily relinquished the rubbed ribs right to the smoker Then I made another bowl of rub for the chicken (garlic, onion, Itialian spice, mustard powder, pepper, chicken seasoning and something else I can't remember) and for extra flavor, I put the rub under the skin of the chicken, actually rubbed it into the meat, and on the outside of the skin Here's all of it on the smoker but you can't see the ribs, there on the bottom rack, but there really there! Been on a couple hours now. I'm trying a new way to get gentle smoke without my wood bursting into flames. I cut down a big coffee can and did this. So far so good.
