I had to alter cooking times slightly due to my setup. I got a good deal on some nice meaty baby backs for 3.05/lb so i ended up with 6 racks lol. Cleaned em up and lathered em with brown sugar, spices and a couple styles of rub, wrapped em in clear wrap and let them set in the fridge overnight.
They looked so good, my mouth was already watering so i went out n got the smoker prepped.
Now my issue i have with my smoker is that if i want a nice heavy smoke, i have to run just one burner with chips in a cast iron pan. If i try running the second burner, i have a problem pushing too much draft through. So for 3 hours i added mesquite n alder and cooked at around 165-175°F.
at this time i dropped them in 2 aluminum trays with pretty much the same recipe of juice mix the above screenshot had, adding apple juice, a little worshtershire sauce (spelling) and maple syrup. i cranked the temp up to 260-270 and covered... let them cook in the smoker for about 2.5 hours. Got busy giving the kids tractor rides and lost track of time as i was shooting for 2 hours but when i opened up the packages, they were lookin good so i pulled em, put back on the racks, dropped temp back down to 175, and lathered 2 with stubbs spicy bbq sauce, 1 bith stubbs original and left 1 plain.
Again i got caught up with the kids and the beer was starting to work so they sat cooking for about 45 minutes, but again everything must happen for a reason because they were perrrrfect!
You could pick a whole rack up without it falling apart, but the meat just slid right off the bone...
Here are a couple pics of the whole meal minus the bbqd corn on the cob and asparagus because i guess the women were too busy gabbing to remember to put them on... love you sweety! Lol
We ended an awesome night with a bonfire n cocktails
I had just enough leftovers to make a nice little lunch for work the next day. Definately my new rib go to recipe!
Hope you all enjoyed the pics!
