First 2012 Ribs: St. Louis Style

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

It's been a while since I smoked ribs, and it was great weather for it yesterday so I got out the Horizon 16" and picked up some spare ribs.  Only when I unpacked them I realized they had been trimmed as St Louis style.  No problem, I cooked the rib tips separately and decided to make my first St. Louis ribs.

 

 

 

Two nice, meaty racks from the Original Steer Market here in Portland.

I made up a fresh batch of Jeff's famous rubs and coated both sides:

Now, it's been a cold, wet winter here but I had buttoned down my smoker in the garage and it wintered pretty well. Here's the link to my detailed review of the Horizon 16": http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/106049/horizon-classic-16-smoker-review

Going with Royal Oak brand.  I had just enough cherry chunks left for today.

Got the fire up and going, notice the steady thin blue smoke:

Now, I ended up doing these 3 hours on the grill, 1.5 hours in foil, and then about an extra hour with a little sauce basting just to finish them off.  Went with Jeff's classic sauce.  Here they are resting:

Our guests made some fresh bread and coleslaw, and I made some of my pork brisket beans.  Basically they're baked beans with some chopped up smoked pork brisket I had in the freezer, recipe here:  http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/109951/smoked-pork-brisket

Couple of close-up looks at the ribs. The bark was nice and caramelized.

I think this is an end piece, pretty meaty for spares, but who's complaining?

Overall I was pleased with the outcome having not done this cut before.  That wraps it up, thanks for stopping by!

Ravanelli, How do you like your cooker? is that a Oklahoma Joe? I just seen one of those at Lowes, for around $449.00 . How well does it seal up ?
