a local bar is having a rib contest in a few weeks and decided to try some different seasonings and let people taste test them for the rub i'm gonna use. i got 2 racks of spares and cut them in half so i could try them 4 different ways. i got the ribs seasoned up on saturday and tossed them in the fridge in zip lock bags, i started my smoker up around 10:30 on sunday morning to get it up to heat and enjoyed the rest of my day. i did the 3-2 -1 method and they all turned out great. nice smoke ring and juicy fall off the bone ribs. i used mesquite and apple wood for smoke flavor
top left-stubs prok marinade
top right-mesquite chipotle/ i added a lil bbq sauce during the foil process
bottom left-baby back rub
bottom right-jb fat boys/brown sugar/ habenaro powder (sweet and spicy)
i added some brown sugar to all of them when i put them on the smoker
right before i put them in foil....got some nice pull back already.
baby back rub
jb fat boys/ brown sugar/habenaro powder
the stubs marinade had great flavor all the way thru, nice citrus flavor
the mesquite chipotle was good..but i like it better on chicken
the baby back rub stole the show
and the fat boys with habenaro and brown sugar had a great bite to it...but i dont think it good enough for the competition.
