I couldn't wait... I stayed home from work today to smoke meat.

I made up a batch of Jeff's rub and put it on loin chops last night and simply tossed them in the oven.  They were great.  So I was going to use the remainder of the loin and smoke it this weekend when I had some time.

Instead, I took the day off work. beercheer.gif


Here's the Before:


I'll post the rest after a few hours have gone by and all the good smoke has been leaked out of the wood I put in my SFB stick-burner.


Remainder of the loin I didn't cook.  All rubbed up and ready for the 'farr'




I had lots of rub. Hee Hee...  Rib rub goes on Ribs right? yahoo.gif



I tossed in an extra pan just for kicks...


No really, that's where I'm putting a mixture of water and apple juice which I'll later use to baste the ribs.  It works dang it.  You get more smokey goodness from the basting water/juice being in the smoker the whole time.  Plus you get the added benefit of temp regulation.  Sorta.grilling_smilie.gif



OK.  I'll check back in a few hours to see how we're doing.

Loin slicing very nice after cool down.

Now all that's left is to set the finishing glaze on the ribs.

It's amazing how many calls and emails I still fielded while "off" work though.
Regardless, I didn't have to wait on the weekend. :)

So wide did you put your loin in a pan but yet put the ribs directly on the grate?

It sure did SQWIB...  Stess balls don't have anything on playing hooky. :)


And irishpride, I have no excuse.  I just did it.  

Actually, every time I put a loin on the grate directly, I lose some to the loin sticking.  And what's worse is the part I lose is the good crunchy part.

So I use a pan and it gets smoked enough that way.  I just got it to temp and took it out to rest.  It came out really good.
