Such a nice day here in Northern VA yesterday, temp in the 50's, went to my favorite butcher who had a deal on baby backs, butts and fattie ribs.
So I started the ribs using a base rub of Leggs old plantation rub and spiced it up while cutting the salt as I like a sweeter rub.
So here's the prep and theses baby backs looked SWEET!!!
Yes - Libations were a must!!
Back side looking good...
The little piggies soaking up the smoke...yum
Just came off the smoker. Nice bark and yes those are the evening libations in the background.
My son said these 'are the bomb'. What he didn't say was we 'invited' his date over for dinner today (these were yesterday's batch) and told her dad can make some great ribs...I appreciate the compliment and I was off to the back yard (colder temps) to smoke some MORE ribs for dinner tonight...NO pressure at all for this newbie...
Back side and they tasted great. Lesson learned about store bought rubs....Too much salt..Remedied that today though....tinkered with the rub and we'll see.
Only problem with yesterday's ribs was I couldn't snap a pix of the cut meat. I went upstairs to shower and I was left with 4 ribs when I got back....Gee thanks, oh well.....
