My first attempt with the MasterBuilt XL - Baby Back Ribs

  1. OK, I'm new here, so if this belonged in the Pork forum, I apologize in advance.  Folks asked me in Roll Call to post Q-View.  Hopefully I will get this right.

    Tyson baby back ribs from Wally World.  2 of the three slabs, membrane pulled, soaked overnight in a brine of 1 gallon water/1 C salt/1C brown sugar, then last night a quick rinse, and a dry rub.  I used Famous Dave's Rib Rub, since my wife likes their stuff.

    All ready to go.

    If you look closely, TBS above the smoker.  My first time and I hit it.  This is 15 mins after I fired her up.  

    I went up to check it about 20 mins later, and the temp had dropped.  I guess this is why I need to watch it and learn how this baby cooks.  Oh well, as long as I am having fun.  I'll let these go for at least an hour, and if I can't smell the smoke, I will add a few more chunks.  Then after about 2 hours total, I plan to foil them for 2 hours.  After, they get sauced up with Famous Dave's Rich 'n Sassy sauce (again, what the wife likes).  If all goes well, then I will start experimenting!  More photos to come!
