Ribs & Beans w/ Q View

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Doing some beans and ribs for when my sister comes in town later this week. Going to be busy at work, so I figured i would get a jump on a couple things. So I am going to do 2 of the 3 steps (3-2-1) with the ribs and then reheat doing step 3. I am using some of the rub I had left from my Shoulder cook and few weeks ago.Then I can adjust the flavor for next time for a rib rub if needed.

 

I have trimmed the spares down to St.Luis cut. I am going to smoke the trimmings to either snack on or add to some greens I am making for dinner that night. But I am sure I will snack....oh I mean quality control taste.... yea that it is quality control..

 

I am also doing some smoked beans as well. I just took some canned beans and added yellow mustard, ketchup and brown sugar. I am putting a rack over the beans to smoke some of trimming and allow the dripping to add flavor to them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I leave a void in the bottom left corner for air flow. I have lowered the stack.

So here we are 3 hrs into the smoke. Had a bit of rain and it knocked my temp down below where I wanted it, but we are back on track now.

 

 

Going to try the Trigg method for foiling, just using Agave Nectar instead of honey. I am doing the trimmings and 1 rack without the Tiger Sauce. Wife does not like spicy food. wife.gif

 

 

 

So this is what I saw in the smoker after i opened it the first time in 2.75hrs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wrapped and ready for step 2. I did move the beans to the hotter side of the smoker. Need a bit more thickening.

 

 

 

We will see in about 1.5hrs. The smoker has kicked back to my cook temp.

So here we are after 1.5hrs in foil.

 

 

 

Setting the glaze.

 

 

 

 

I have put the trimmings and 1 rack in the fridge to serve later.

Finished!!

 

 

I did not let the glaze set enough. I pulled them due to temp going down and did not want to put more charcoal or wood on.

 

 

 

 

Cut view.

 

 

They were a bit over cooked for comp Q, but for at home they were perfect. I looked over at my wife eating them. I then realized she was eating ribs with a fork!!! I asked her if she was really eating ribs with a fork. She smiled and said "yep, why not if the come off the bone easy!"

 

I hope that the ones I reheat will be as good. We shall see.

Yes. I was not sure about it, but figured he was the rib king and give it a shot. I will have to say I really liked it. The only thing I would add is a bit of acid to cut through the sweetness and the fat. But that is me......
