Won't be too long now...
All trimmed up St Louis style. The trimmings might go into beans or might go into me.
Rubbed down and ready to go.
This may get my rookie OTBS status revoked, or even get me banned altogether. But I had to have at least some smoke flavor.

This is helping.
Got the beans mixed up with the rib trimmings.
Ribs all ready to be wrapped in parchment paper.
Like a nice little present all wrapped up and ready to go in for another hour. Bumped the temp to 325 as I wasn't liking the way the fat was (or wasn't ) rendering.
After an hour in parchment. Little more pullback than I wanted but it is what it is. They smell awesome and seem pretty tender.
Sauced and ready for another half hour or so.
Lookin' good my friend!
We will need to talk about that liquid smoke though....I think we can find other ways to get that smokey flavor!
Let's build you a porch or something, buddy! LOL!
The key is, did you have a great meal? That's what counts!
Meal was pretty good, I've made better, but it was pretty tasty. Ribs were just a tad overdone, but not too badly. Probably woulda been fine if I'd left the temp at 275˚ Obviously it would have been much better on the smoker.
Chicken with my Mustard Mutiny sauce.
Beans were really good. Would have been off the charts on the smoker.
Bad pic, but you can see they weren't totally falling apart, just a little more done than I like.
Ribs look a little burnt here but it was the lighting, or lack thereof. They had a pretty heavy rub, which was fairly dark, but no char. Potato salad was good.
