    Another beautiful Saturday Southwest of Chicago, low 60's and sunny. Did some babybacks, polish, and ABT's. All turned out good.

    thanks.

    I am getting alot of "practice" in this month for a BYOS(bring your own smoker) pot luck I am hosting in May. For that event I am doing 6-7 slabs of babybacks, as well as 5-6 lbs of either hot links, or boudin. I have 5 other guys with smokers coming out to feed 50 or so people.

    thanks cowgirl,

    you got that right, nothing better than a comfortable seat on the deck next to the smoker, cold beverage in hand watching the deer running through my property.

    thanks, I went lighter on the rub, and really enjoyed this batch.

    The weather was odd, it was mid 60's out where I live s.w. of Chicago, and 31 degrees down by the lakefront.

    This weekend babybacks again, and more sausage I have to try out my source for fresh boudin, and hot links.
     
  13. Dang, looking at that makes me believe I'm in need of rib fix!

    thanks for the comments all.

    here are a couple of pics from my previous Saturdays ribs, and brats. The ribs I used more rub, with yellow mustard to make more of a bark. Still a decent smoke ring on both.

    Ill be back at it this Saturday, maybe some wild boar or goat, boudin, or some alligator sausage, I am going to wild game store in Homer glen this afternoon to see what they have. If not sausage, ribs, and ABT's again.

    Excellent feast, ~sox....those ABT's looked plump and ready. Nice to see polish sausage qvue once in a while, it's some really tasty stuff that takes to smoke!

    Thanks for sharing, and may the TBS follow you.

    thanks rivet.

    I am back from my visit to the wild game meat shop. picked up a rack of Wild Boar St. Louis ribs, a rack of Wild Boar spare ribs, and 1# of alligator boudin.

    I cant wait for Saturday to smoke them, Ill make another batch of ABT's as well.

    thanks Meatball,

    I am really enjoying smoking sausage so far this year, I think the alligator boudin this weekend will really get me hooked(if im not allready). I hope I made the right choice they had crawfish boudin as well.

    It is also my first try @ wild boar ribs, I have read up on how to smoke them, and I think they will be good as well.
