Disco: well played, and very nicely done. The ribs look great. I have always been a dry rub, no foil, no sauce kind of guy. But I have been thinking about trying the foil method soon just for the experimental experience. I agree that there are way too many methods out there, but it's great to keep trying something new.
Thanks. I will definitely keep trying new things. It's the only way you get better.
First Time? Well good for you. I have tried both, and go nekkid now. Less mess and if done correctly better texture without much loss of moisture.
Next time you try this do the thicker end of the spare rib, and you can get them very juicy over around 6 hours.
Keep up the good Q and thread posting, I enjoy seeing both.
Thanks, Carlos. Getting the thicker end of the ribs here is a real problem. I live in the mountains and the local supermarket's selection isn't what you can get in the big smoke. You eat what you can get!
