Just got back from a very successful bighorn sheep hunt where my father took down an awesome ram. Everything was boned out except the rib racks, which are wholly intact and now mine to smoke up in my MasterBuilt 40 gasser. Anyone ever smoked these before? While the horns were huge, the animal wasn't a monster so there's not a ton of meat on each rib but they're very long. I'm thinking 2.5-2.5-1, but am open to suggestions.
Also, spices.. I'm feeling like a standard pork rib rub would hide too much of the sheep flavor which is supposed to be really good. Maybe something more simple like a salt and pepper beef rub would be more appropriate. Any suggestions?
