First smoke - Spare ribs with Q view

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Tried out my new Master Forge today.  Son picked up some spare ribs for the test.  I only smoked one slab of them today for a trial.  About 6.5 hours.  No 3-2-1 method, just smoke.  Encountered a few issues like I have seen others here talk about.  Heat fluxuations and smoke escaping from the doors.  So I know I have a few mods to make this week.

 

As for the rib rub, a mixture of Tony Chachere's seasoning, raw sugar, and a small amount of paprika.  Well it was SPICY!  I certainly need to change it up a lot if I use that again.  Will definately search here for a decent rub mix.  I did cut the rack in half and just rub on one and the other was a mustard slather and then the rub.  I spritzed the ribs about every hour with apple juice/H2O mix.  Smoked with hickory chunks which caught fire numerous times.  Soaked a few which seemed better.  Need a better smoke box.

 

As for the ribs, well here is how they looked.

Bottom portion had the mustard rubbed on it.

Pretty tasty all in all.  Just need to work on the rub. Just something simple.

I see no probs with those ribs!

 

As to rubs, I find myself using them more sparingly on ribs.  (no pun intended)

 

You are on your way.  Learning is half if not more of the fun!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

The ribs sure look good!

 

I'm with the others, less rub, more smoked pork flavor.
