    It has been raining non stop for what seems like a lifetime here in South East Texas and today the good lord said let there be sunshine.  As a tribute to the burning ball of gasses that gives us light I decided to do an easy Baby Back Rib smoke.  I got some good racks at HEB a few weeks ago and found this sitting next to them.

    I just built a UDS but these are for the MES while I wait to go pick up my charcoal basket.

    Now back to these chips they had cherry, oak, pecan, and mesquite for $1.99 a bag I picked up the pecan and oak since I had some of the rest.

    More to come.

    3 baby backs just went on at my place also. Still kinda new at this so I am doing more experimenting. Just got myself some traeger apple pellets to go with my lump and briquette charcoal. I have a new rub on 2 of them, and doing them 2-2-1 with some sauce going on them the last hour. The other one is being done the way everyone liked so well last weekend, 4-1 with the 4 being in foil with barbeque sauce and no rub.
