Baby got back! (ribs that is)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Well.... after spending two years smoking anything that would hold still long enough for me to slather it with mustard and coat it in rub, I decided to do some baby back ribs. I usually do spare ribs trimmed to a St. Louis style, I just like the amount of meat you get on them and they are usually about $1-2 per lb. less than the baby backs..... and I'm a cheap bastard... lol.

 

So on with the show!

 

Went for a spicy savory rub with a background sweetness. Rub was 1/4 C brown sugar, 1/2 C bad byrons butt rub, 1/8 C Old Bay, and then a very, very light dusting of my smoked cayanne powder over each rack. WSM was set up with two big chunks of hickory and a chunk of apple. Ran the WSM at 225° except for the last hour.

 

Everybody into the pool!

Two hours in.... smelling good!

5 hours.... putting on first shot of sauce/glaze.

.... little bit of Bear view for our be kind to animals week. biggrin.gif

After the first glaze I opened up the bottom vents and brought the smoker temp up to 275, after half an hour I put on a second coat.

Couple of shots of them cut up...

Look great...what's your verdict on the outcome??...worth the xtra splurge? I fondle the BB's in Costco for a bit before putting them back and picking up the usual slabs. This semi-retired stuff is cramping my style a little...lol.

No... I'm still cheaper... lol, this is the first time I have bought BB ribs... EVER! biggrin.gif But these aren't near as expensive as yours, they were $3.99 lb. at Costco.

Willie - they are good.... but keep in mind that due to their size you are going to eat 1.5-2 BB compared to 1 meaty spare, BUT you get 3 racks of BB in the Costco cryo bags vs. 2 racks of the spares. I would say give them a shot Willie, it's only $7-$10 more.

LOL... I like the Pac. NW, yes it rains, but it beats the dusty dry heat of NM, or the smogey heat and pissed off drivers of the bay area... lol.

Excellent looking ribs, Johnny!

 

Like most I usually go spares.  Less cost and better meat to bone ratio.

 

Good luck and good smoking.
