    Spare Ribs were on sale for $1.99/lb at Fry's so I decided to fire-up the ol' ECB. They were so big, however, that I had to cut them in half to get them on the racks! [​IMG]

    If she likes them, perhaps I can persuade the wife that a bigger smoker would have made them even better! If they don't turn out, blame it on the ECB... [​IMG]

    #1 - After a good rub and overnight rest in the fridge
    #2 - on the ol' ECB and cut in half.

    Uncle Flappy - nice job on those ribs! I've got an ECB and have to cut my slabs in half as well. Need to invest in a rib rack to maximize the space [​IMG]

    What kind of wood are you using on those baby's?

    Lots of Mesquite here in AZ so I am using mostly that although I will probably toss in some Hickory and Apple chips I picked up a while back up from Wally World. No secret recipe; just whatever is in arm's reach.

    Sounds great, whatever gets the precious TBS out of your smoker is all that matters [​IMG]

    Ribs look great. Any excuse is a good excuse when you are trying for a new smoker.

    I always love ribs on the ECB. Hope you got extras at 1.99. I was looking at 4.99 this morning when I bought a butt.

    U Flappy,

    You can't beat the ECB for a quick fix. We run into same problem w/ ribs. But she'll smoke'm just fine. Looks good.
