I got done w/ work early today so I hit costco and walmart and picked up some ribs and such to do a rib test on my smoker. I was highly successful doing reverse sear pork steaks that I thought I'd pick up some ST Louis Spares and give 'em a whirl
Here is a photo with them rubbed down w EVO, dark brown sugar and a cheap rub
more to follow...in about 2-3 hours
After approx 2.5 hours at 230-235 degrees in some hickory smoke They ar going in the foil with Apple juice, dk brown sugar and honey:
Back in the ECB for an 90-120 minutes
After 2 hrs of foiling here are the results
The meat has pulled back from the bone and the meat is fairly spongy. yet very flexible. The meat is now back on the smoker grills for 1 more hour, I will use my special Mustard sauce to baste.
More to come.
Money Shot...no smoke ring, I did not replenish the wood once the smoke stopped. This tastes really good though. Better than in the oven
not bad for a 1st try. The other un cooked slab is in the freezer, may be another try next friday
