Ribs and Chicken. Celebrating the end of the snow!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Well, it seems the winter thaw is finally beginning. And my poor little daughter is sick so I had to take the day off and take her to the doctor. I decided to take advantage of the sunny weather and throw a rack of ribs in the MES30 and since I like a full smoker, I threw in some bone it chicken breasts I picked up the other day. Ribs for dinner tonight and chicken for the week.

Here's the rack of ribs with some mustard and jeffs rub.



Game plan for the ribs is about three hours of smoke or until one row (hickory and maple) of the AMNPS burns out. Then into a foil pan with some maple whiskey and apple juice and covered for the next couple of hours and then however much time out of the foil they need to firm up some.

Here's the chicken:


Just a rubbed with some oil and a rub I like with poultry that has salt, pepper, garlic, anise, and sage.

Gonna check the temp on those in about 45-hour. And pull them at 165 IT.

I will be back with more!

Looking good- Still have several feet on the ground here in Maine.  I actually haven't even grilled on the kettle in close to three months!

Here they are out of the foil:



Extreme close up:

Well not that close haha

And brushed with some of jeffs sauce:


Probably need about 30 more minutes. Might be a little more fall off the bone than I like but I have to keep the wife happy!

Well... They turned out well. Nice and juicy and tender. I prefer the smoke the whole time no peaking no foiling method because they get a smokier taste I think. Go figure, my wife's stomach was bothering her so she didn't eat them. No good deed goes unpunished haha

Here's a shot of them:


Overall a great success. Flavor was good, texture was good. Just want a little more smoke flavor.

Thank you all very much! And the little one is doing better, now my wife is falling apart. Haha and I had a horrible reaction to my daughters medication. I'm severly allergic to penicillin and giving it to her today triggered this crazy rash. Hahah nothing some
