Hi there!!! This Monday (memorial day) I am going to be smoking 2 racks of pork baby back ribs. I must admit, I am NEROUS AS HECK doing this because it's my first time, AND I will be smoking for a great couple friends of ours. So that adds to my "nervousness".
Here is my plan of action:
Remove membranes from slabs.
Going to make my KC Style Rib rub "rub" and rub down both racks and tightly wrap in saran wrap for refrigerator overnight marinating.
Make mop (1 cup apple juice, 1 cup water, 1/4th cup apple cider)
bring slabs out of refrig to bring to room temp
rub another rub in
Start up the char griller smoking pro with Royal Oak lumps
Bring it up to 225 degrees and add hickory chunks
Once it starts smoking...add the ribs for 2 hours naked
spray with mop hourly
pull at 2 hour mark and foil with mop juice and put back in for 2 more hours
pull at 2 hour mark and put back on unfoiled
add kc masterpice bbq sauce the last half hour to go
Hopefully this will all turn out. will post qviews as I go (if I can remember)
I have a lot of chicken smokes under my belt, but ribs is my next "step up". Ultimately I want to do butts one or two times. Im nervous as heck!! Dunno why!
What you think of my plan of action?
