Decided on some babybacks and mac&cheese for the game today. The jerk chicken was so good the other day that i used a modified jerk rub for the ribs.I added more honey grandulars,dark brown sugar and afew other things to change it up some.I rubbed them up the night before and added some more rub when i took them out to sit while i got the duo ready and up to temp.
Put them on the duo at 230 with some cherry and mesquite chunks.Although it was cold today the duo ran like a champ i was able to keep it chugging along between 230-255 all day! I used a mop of apple juice,rum,and a little brown sugar for the first 2 hours.Then after the 2 hour mark i foiled them up with some of the mop juice.And put on the mac&cheese!
Left them in the foil for 1.5 hours then removed the ribs and coated them with honey and let them smoke for another 55 mins.I gave the mac&cheese a stir and taste and decided to leave that on for awhile too. I didn't get too many pictures at this point cause i was watching the game but i did get alot of the finished product!! Here's the ribs.
And the mac& cheese,the cheeses i used were gouda,fontellia,and mild cheddar!Man, it was tasty!!
I cut up some ribs and was amazed i almost got the smoke ring all the way to the bone!!
Man i was happy with these!
I couldn't help myself but to keep taking pics...while my wife was yelling at me to stop cause she was hungry!!lol..so i took more!!
Oh i almost forgot..i made some DR.PEPPER bbq sauce that i was on the forum afew days ago.I forget who posted it ( SORRY) but it was pretty good! I made a plate with and without the sauce,i liked them without the sauce myself.Wife liked it with the sauce...go figure!!!
And one more just cause!!
Man i could not belive how good these babyback were!! By far the best one i have done sofar! Between the jerk,honey,and cherry and mesquite wood....dang!! i ate WAY more that i should have! Thanks for checking out my footbal snacks!!!--LES
