So, I took a trip with the wife to our local butcher, and armed myself for the weekend. Ribs are on today. Stay tuned for pics! And...away we go!!!

Two pretty substantial slabs

 

Two uber-untrimmed slabs

 

 

Cut them to be a little more uniform. Rubbed the slabs with Jeff's rub, the scraps with some KC BBQ rub, then threw it all on. Going to eat the scraps as little snacks along the way.

Well, it was quite a fight to maintain temps.  Wasn't the smoker so much as me committing the cardinal sin of resealing my smoker, and not doing a test burn to see how it behaved with the new seal.  Anyway, we've reached the foiling point...

 

Foiling time!

 

And I added a little foiling juice, made from rib seasoning, apple cider vinegar, and chicken broth.

And here are the rest:

 

Wife decided to throw on some mac and cheese to smoke with me, using a four cheese recipe we found last year

 

Wife threw some mac and four cheese on for a little cheesy smoked pasta goodness

 

Another view of the mac

 

Another shot of the mac and cheese

 

Foil stage is done...time to glaze and let sit in the smoke again

 

Done with the foil phase, time for glaze

 

Trust me...I'm a doctor

 

Tonight's special guest...Dr. Pepper

 

Other slab

 

Mmmmm...looking good so far

 

Looking good, ready for another hour

 

Brushed and ready for another round

 

Took the juice from the foil, added ketchup and honey, and reducing for a sauce

 

Took the foil juice and decided to make a dipping sauce. Threw in some ketchup and honey, and starting to reduce it a bit

 

Mac is done...beautiful color and still tender

 

And it's done

Yep, it got hit hard

 

Dig in!

 

Another slice.  Would have been perfect, except I had to take a bite, lol

 

Money shot right there...well, I suppose it would have been, had I not taken a bite out of the corner

 

Well, there it is!  Flank steak tomorrow.

Mcgallimore,

Sorry to hear you're under the weather. Get well soon.

I'll dig up the recipe (or link to it) and add in my wife's mods. It's good stuff. There's a good amount of Gouda in it, and it really takes the smoke well.
