Yeah, you know I'm addicted when I start ribs after I get home at 5:30. They should be done around 11:30, looking great so far after 2.5 hours. Learned a few things from my first ribs this last Saturday, added more hickory than apple to get a stronger smokey flavor. I had a great smoke ring, but wasn't a strong smokey flavor. It had a slight hint of smokiness despite the nice smoke ring, I assumed it was because more apple than Hickory. Also this time kept temps between 250 and 270, it just didn't seem like I had enough cooking temp or time in it last time.
Still had some tug to it, tasted great but I was hoping for fall off the bone tenderness. Here's how she looks so far 2.5 hours in.
My set up for smoking. A nice $16 Wal-mart wireless thermo, that I use to keep an eye on the smoker temps so I know when to come out and stoke the fire or add more briqs.
2.5 hours in, forming a nice bark and oh my gosh look at those juices on top. Got some pullback starting on the big section. Yummm!!
I'll post the after pics in the morning or sometime tomorrow night, since this will be a late nighter. lol. Foiling in 30 then on for 2 more hours.
Here are the ribs pulled after 3 hours ready for foiling. To quote George Foreman - "LOOK at the LINES! LOOK at the LINES." =D
