First Smoked Ribs - Page 2

What a spread!

Overall it turned out good. The St Louis were real good, the Baby Backs I put in the foil too long and it was too tender. Also, I read that I could use any juice during the foiling, and all I had was OJ. That caused them to be citrus-ey which I didn't like, so next time no OJ.

The shrimp turned out good, however I was running out of time and it took so long to get all the shrimp onto the grill that it lost a lot of the heat, so I ended up smoking for about 20min and then throwing on the gas side just to finish cooking the bacon. So it turned out good, but I was dissapointed that I couldn't smoke them to perfection.

 

Overall I was very happy with everything, though. Thank you SMFers!

MeridianMan,

I like to mix about 6 ounces of Apple Juice & 2 ounces of BBQ sauce, stir it, Nuke it to at least 180* (so it doesn't cool your meat down any), stir it again, and pour it over the ribs when foiling.

 

Give that a try.

Sounds like your an old seasoned veteran now......... the big question is did you really enjoy it? If so, welcome to my addiction!

 

Thats looks like a winner meal that everyone enjoyed if the worst that you can say is, "my ribs were too tender". LOL

That sounds great Bearcarver... Thanks for the tip. Will definitely do that next time as it sounds much better :)

Haha... I wouldn't go that far :) Yes I did enjoy them, and the process itself was a lot of fun. Just wish I had more $ and more time to do it more often :) I home roast my own coffee also, so I'm actually thinking about trying to smoke my green coffee first before roasting it. Could be good, though I'll need to use a more mellow wood, maybe Apple or Cherry or something like that. Then I put two "addictions" together :)

And my buddy who we ate with is a seasoned smoker and he did Tri Tip. Needless to say we didn't finish it all in one sitting :)

Since you didn't like the citrus flavor after adding the OJ try not adding any liquid at all during the foiling stage. I don't add any liquid, the ribs will create enough liquid on their own. Any liquid you add will change the flavor, but is not required for tender, moist ribs.

So you still foil, but just leave them as is, correct?
