OK I have decided to go ahead with my rib smoke tomorrow.
I need my ribs to be ready by halftime of the University of Montana vs. Coastal Carolina University football game(around 2pm). As you can see by the temps I might have to amend the 3-2-1 rib cooking method a little.
Here is my plan.
6 am- coffee
6:30 am- fire up MES30.
6:40 am- light apple pellets in AMNPS
6:45 am- Irish coffee, Bailey's and Jameson Irish Whisky
7 am- put ribs and AMNPS in smoker (holy crap its cold out there!!)
7:05 am- Irish coffee
7:15 am- say a little prayer for some divine help to keep the pellets lit and producing smoke so I can limit my outdoors exposure.
7:30 am- Irish coffee, repeat when necessary
10 am- puts rib in tented foil pan, add some apple juice, Brrrr its cold out there
10:15- am- Irish coffee
11:45- almost kick off, Jameson on the rocks, Not as cold out, Jameson is doing its job
noon- kick off of football game
12:15- remove ribs from foil, place back on racks in smoker, sauce 2 racks, leave 2 racks naked, Still f-en cold out!!
1:15- pull apart a couple ribs to check for doneness, Don't seem to care as much about the temp anymore.
1:30ish- Remove ribs from smoker, Tent ribs and let rest until halftime
2 pm- Enjoy ribs with a glass of Jameson on the rocks
Ill let you know how it goes, wish me luck!! And GO GRIZ!!
