    We're having an NFL playoff fantasy draft tonight. I figured the boys would appreciate some ribs with their beer.

    I am trying peach for the first time. Man, does it smell unbelievable. I mixed in a few cherry and apple pellets as well.

    I use an MES and it's -5 right now so I heated the smoker racks along with ther ribs in the oven at 225 for 15 minutes in an attempt to salvage some heat when I start.

    2-2-1 will be done on these ribs to try something different. I will use concentrate apple juice for braising.



    This is the greatest tool for ABT's. 4 or 5 bucks from Cabelas and it's worth it's weight in gold. They cut down the prep time substantially.



    These will be done in 5 or hours so. I can't wait!

    I can't find it anywhere locally either. Here is where I got the peach and a few other things...

    Shipping isn't cheap, but it's worth it to me. I look forward to trying orange, pear, and pecan.

    Be sure to let us know how the peach tastes. I can get my hands on tons of it and have a few big seasoned chunks just sitting around, no reason I never tried it, just haven't yet.

    If you live near a farm or fruit orchard try them for your wood.
    Place somewhat close to me has oak, cherry, peach, apple and maple all seasoned and great prices.

  10. Nice looking ribs and ABT's. How did the peach smoke change the flavor?

    The ribs turned out awesome.

    The peach gave the meat a nice mildly sweet, mellow flavor. The smoke flavor blended very nicely with my rub, which is a little on the spicy side.

    1/2 the ribs I made with sauce, the other 1/2 dry. They were both very good.

    I think that if I were allergic to pork, I would still make peach baby backs just to get a whiff of the creation in the process. The aroma was unreal.

    I foiled and refrigerated a whole rack for ice fishing tomorrow.
