Saturday Spares (Qview)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Morning all,



Have two racks of spares all trimmed up and ready for the smoker!! It's going to be another glorious weekend. I'm going to throw them in around 1030-11am and have them for dinner.

Going unfoiled all the way and maybe sauce one or both, haven't decided yet.

I still flip-flop between foil or no foil. When I use foil, I'm glad I did. When I don't, I'm glad I didn't. I guess my favorite ribs are the ones I'm eating at the time, whether or not they were foiled. I do prefer sauced though, whether it was before, during or after.

I hear ya there! I prefer my ribs to have a little pull off the bone...but foiled FOTB are good too, as long as people are eating and not complaining they're good! I actually prefer all my ribs dry but I'm going to sauce one rack for the wife and see what she likes better.

I also told her I'm only going to drink two beers while smoking... My first one and last one !! Lol.

Should be tasty! For pork ribs I don't fool, and like you I don't sauce for myself. Beef ribs I foil as I feel they benefit from the braise.

3 hrs in. Had to add more wood so I figured I'd take a pic.

Finished and plated shots:



The spares came out very good. One rack was a store bought rub and the other was a homemade rub. I liked mine a little better but the commercial one was yummy too! Ended up saucing both racks.

The ribs were smoked unfoiled for about 6.5 hrs....all in all, a good day!!
