Decided to smoke 6 racks of untrimmed pork spare ribs from Sam's club yesterday. I work from home on Wednesday's so this might be a common occurrence. Anyhow, I trimmed and rubbed the night prior with Stubb's rib rub. used lumpwood charcoal and pecan wood chunks for the first time, pretty good combo. I usually use kingsford briquettes and hickory or mesquite wood chips. I smoked at 250 on the Brinkmann Gourmet for 5 hours spraying every 30-45 minutes with a Jim Bean/Cranberry juice mix. The pic below is right at 5 hours, after pic I brushed with some sauce and let cook another 20 minutes. The trimmings were placed in a slowcooker at 7am with some tomato soup, garlic, soy/worchestershire sauce and pepper. They came out pretty good as well.
