"No Spare Ribs Left behind!" Spare Ribs w/Qview 14 Year old son's First Smoke!

Discussion in 'Pork' started by cooking momma, Jun 20, 2011.

  1. My 14 year old son Elliott saw Alelover's Ribs and said he wanted to make them! This boy loves to eat like any typical teenager. He was having a friend over today and wanted to make it all himself, so I said go for it! Here are the results, and I must say he did a mighty fine job!

    Rubbed the ribs down with Kansas City Dry Rub.


    Wrapped them nice and tight in plastic wrap, and put them to bed.


    Put them on the smoke 50/50 Pecan & Hickory @ 220 and set the timer for 6 hours.

    Wrapped the ends with foil for the first hour, then removed it and let them smoke for another two hours.


    (sorry forgot to get a pic of the ends wrapped).

    Wrapped them tight in foil and put them back on for another two hours. (forgot to get a pic of this step too).

    Removed the foil and slathered them with some Sweet Baby Rays and let them go for another hour.


    Ready to go!




    Sides were Sweet Potato Fries and of course the new favorite Deep Fried Corn on the Cob.


    Time to scarf down some ribs! Elliott & his friend Daniel eating the fruits of Elliott's labor.  


    Absolutely delicious! Great job buddy :)  

    Chef Elliott is a new young Smoker. His Philosophy is "No Spare Ribs Left Behind!"

    GREAT for you, Momma and Elliott!!!  I can't get my kids to play in the kitchen for anything!  Looks like there's going to be a kitchen full  of teenagers at your house for the next few years!

    AWESOME JOB, Elliott
  12. Thank you! I know I saw that smile, he was so proud of himself, because they came out so well :) He was smiling the whole time we were eating too LOL! His friend Daniel, didn't say much, he was too busy eating LOL! When he was all done and stuffed he looked over and just said DELICIOUS! I hope he remembers everything I teach him, so he can make some awesome food for his family someday :)
