Spare Rib Sunday... and my patio project

  1. Hello BBQ Lovers,

    I had BBQ to eat yesterday, does that me I should not be eating it today?  Ha ha, seriously if it's anywhere between Monday and Sunday it's a good day to make and eat some BBQ I say!

    Today I worked on a backyard project, and man I need some motivation to keep me moving forward.  So I fired up the Weber Smokey Mountain, charcoal, mesquite, and some lovely spare ribs.  I hit them with rub and some vegetable oil and threw them in to smoke for 5 hours at 250 degrees.  I added wood once and flipped them a couple of times.  Pulled them off and let 'em rest in plastic wrap, foil, and a towel for an hour.  Then back on a the hot flaming 450 degree grill and painted them with yummy BBQ sauce with a special kick of heat, sweet, and tang... LOVE IT!

    Thought I'd share so I took a couple of pics.

    It was one hell of a Sunday.

    Take care BBQ Brethren!

    Nice looking ribs Shawn! [​IMG]

    That patio looks nice as well, really nice job keeping the lines straight - I know that can be the hardest part.

    Excellent job on the patio.  I laid a round brick patio for a friend last summer and I can appreciate all the hard work involved.  Excellent looking ribs, too!
