Hey guys, I'm smoking a couple racks of spares for the LSU vs. Miss. State game Saturday & I was a little curious about the best way to rub the ribs. I have already rubbed them, but I am afraid I used too much. Using Jeff's Rib Rub, I have covered the meaty part of the ribs completely. When I say completely, there is a later of rub that will not allow you to see any meat. It's not real thick, but it does hide any visibility of the ribs themselves. I wonder if this is overkill, or will this rub create a "bark" like you would find on a Pork Butt? I would love to hear any suggestions or comments you may have. On another note, last weekend I successfully smoked my first pork butt. Just like you guys said it literally fell apart when I uncovered it. Everyone thought I was a little crazy for staying with the smoker for 14 hours (maybe I am) but they had no complaints about the Butt. Special thanks to Piney, Ritchee, & Motor for the late night help!!
