I gotta try oak and cherry combo! Good stuff, thanks for sharing.
I am also in your boat with the wife that likes fall off the bone. Just posted a thread where I wrapped one and didn't wrap the other, trying to please everyone. I'll keep making tweeks until I get it perfect... Could be a while, good thing I have an appetite!
It seems it is fairly common on here to have a wife that has a a different taste in ribs (fall apart ribs). I tried to convince her that bite off the bone was more desirable, but a woman will like what she likes. And you gotta make the mrs. happy! Which is what I intend to do on my next batch of ribs. Doing two different consistencies will require me to take my skills to a new level - I'm up for the challenge.
And yeah, the cherry and red oak combination is incredible. I plan to use this combo on any meat I smoke now - while tossing in some hickory on a larger cut of meat like a pork butt.
