Today I played "Hmm, along with BB Ribs, what else can I put in my smoker"....

Had a few people over and didn't feel like doing much in the kitchen.


Here's the ribs after prep.




6 racks of BBs, excess fat and membrane removed.



Into the smoker at 250 - 275 (as I was running late). Already knew that I'd be smoking Dutch's beans, but then figured "Why not smoke everything else?"   Had never smoked peppers, corn or asparagus, but I wasn't about to let that stop me.




Sorry, this is the only pic I have of most of it.


1st shelf: 3 racks of BBs

2nd shelf: Dutch's Wicked Beans 

3rd shelf:  3 more racks of BBs

4th shelf: 14 ears of corn on the cob

5th shelf:  Red, yellow and orange peppers with Oregano and balsamic vinegar, along with 2 more ears of corn.


Not pictured:  Couple of pounds of Asparagus drizzled with EVOO  and kosher salt. Went in on the 2nd shelf next to the beans.






Had a devil of a time with this cook.   Still haven't figured out exactly what happened, but my 18" AMNTS fought me all day, to the point where I threw a 12" AMNTS in to see if that would work.  The thing just wouldn't generate much smoke.  First time I have had this problem.  


Think it might have been an airflow problem because when I would pull it out of the smoker, smoke would start flowing out.


Anyways, chamber temp got sacrificed during my trials and tribulations with the AMNTS.   Yeah, I wanted the ribs to cook, but *****, I want SMOKE in that chamber.  



Anyways, ribs went in first and were on for 2 or so hours before the beans went in.   Another hour elapsed and then the corn and the peppers went on.  During that hour, I cranked the temp up to about 300 for the last hour.


Checked the ribs on the top rack about 1/2  hour later and they had a ways to go, so they earned themselves some quality time wrapped in fcil.   Ribs on the third shelf behaved much better and were actually ready to out of the smoker, so I obliged them.


After another 1/2 hour, I removed the 3 racks from the foil and put them back in the smoker


Here's the final pic that I managed to take.





Yep, that's my dinner plate with only the essentials, meat and corn.  Other stuff was for everyone else.  They seemed to love the veggies, so I guess that was a successful experiment.  Dutch's beans were wolfed down as usual.   All in all, was a successful smoke even with all the issues.


One humorous thing is with this smoke is that I've almost convinced myself that I need another smoker  biggrin.gif

Nice lookin' Ribs...I ran Ribs hot 275*F for the first time, got a late start, they came out great. I do need to play with a Brine or Marinade though. Since I did not foil, the flavors of the Foiling Juice were not there so although tasty the meat in the thickest ribs was a little bland...JJ

Looks wonderful...maybe the amount of things you had in your smoker messed with the airflow for the AMNTS?  Just wondering tho.


Looks like a great meal!
