I smoked beef ribs today a little different than I usually do. Normally I just brush olive oil on them and hit them with some salt and pepper and garlic powder. This time I decided to marinade them overnight with Mojo Criollo for a change, then smoked with hickory at 225* doing the 3-2-1 with orange juice during the foil stage. I have not ate yet, still in the garage having a beer but my wife and mother said they are great, better than the last time. So here it is,,, In the marinade all night Coming out, you can see the citric acid "cooked" them making this brown color Going on the smoker 3 hours time to foil Before foil Coming out of foil Coming out of foil Back on smoker for 1 hour All done,,,, I didn't get a smoke ring I guess because of the citric acid "cooked" them in the marinade. Here is my wife's plate, they said they had great flavor and were really tender and when I asked if I should do them this way next time they said yes. I always tell them give honest opinions or I won't learn if you say its good when its not!
