So I got home late tonight, and started prepping for my first long smoke in the morning. I prepped my thawed ribs, and pulled out the jalapenos, cheeses and bacon for the ABTs. All ready to go for the morning, I'll update as I go.
Here are the ribs cut up for ease of handling, and rubbed down ready for the rub.
I bought this spice grinder 2 years ago for use in making rubs, but never used it until tonight. Works great.
Here are the ribs rubbed down, and ready to go back into the fridge until the morning. Smells so wonderful when I open the fridge, can't wait to smell them when cooked.
Here are my japs, I made sure to get the biggest ones I could so I can fill them as much as possible.
Here they are split open and filled, ready for wrapping with bacon.
And here they are wrapped and skewered. I'll cut them up into smaller skewers in the morning so I can place them right side up and keep all of that delicious cheese.
Thanks for viewing, I'll have more pics as I start the smoke in the morning. Wish me luck, my first ribs and first long smoke. I'm getting hungry posting the pics. Snack time. lol
