Made my first babyback ribs in the Brinkman SnP. They came out terrific. I definitely benefited from the collective wisdom on this website so a huge thank you to everyone.
First a bit of background. I made a couple of mods to the SnP based on suggestions received here.
I raised the coal grate up about 6 inches:
This allowed me to have some flexibility on how much I raised the grate. I could raise it higher or lower as needed.
Then I made a wire-mesh coal box:
I started out using all natural wood chacoal but soon switched to lump charcoal as the wood coals just burned way to fast and never got hot enough. The lump coals however burned forever and gave me WAY hotter temps. I'm sold on lump charcoal.
I used the 3-2-1 method. I put extra virgin olive oil and Habanero spice rub on the ribs. For the moisture mix in the tin foil, I used a freshly squeezed lemon, melted butter and a bit more of the habanero spice rub all mixed together and lightly poured onto the ribs. I also placed three fresh Rosemary twigs into the foil as well. Then finished the last hour laid bare on the grill grate.
These turned out fantastic. I made a you tube video of it (edited down to five minutes):
Next up is a Boston Butt!!!
