So we finally got our first official day above 70°!
That's a good enough excuse in my book to fire up the WSM and cook up some ribs!
The Costco around here quit carrying the full slab of spare ribs, and now carries the St. Lois cut spare ribs - they are actually done very well! This was the first time I had bought them and I do like them.
Here are the three victims all rinsed, dried, and ready to get some rub!
.... short while later, a slather of mustard, and some home made rub! We are ready to go!
Onto the WSM at 250° with some cherry wood for the smoke.
Fast forward 3 hrs. and ready to foil.... had two in the foil then rememberd to take a pic.... lol.
Left them in the foil for about 1 hr. 20 min., and I discoverd that if you foil them without any additional liquid they come out perfect! Very moist, but not falling appart.
Brushed them with some sauce and tossed onto the Weber Kettle for a high heat caramelization of the sauce.
Oh snap! Man those look good! They came out perfect, just a nice light smoke ring and loads of flavor!
.... and if this don't spell the end to a perfect day then I don't know what does!
Except maybe this! (my 10 yr. old daughter checked out a cook book based upon Disneys The Princess and the Frog movie, and this is "Ray's Mud Pie" - she made it all by herself)
