I smoked a rack of Spares, 4 beef short ribs and some ABT'S today. This time a rubbed mustard on them instead of olive oil and applied my rub. I also smoked the trimmings from the spares this time instead of saving it for beans etc. Put olive oil on them and Everglades seasoning. Smoked at 225* with hickory. I put the Beef short ribs on for an hour before the spares (3-2-1) then put the Spares on for a 2-2-1. 2 hours before the end of smoke, I added the ABT's. We had a few meatballs left over, so we mashed them up and stuffed the jalapenos with it and added some cheese, wrapped with bacon.
Ready to go.
