Please excuse the pics...cell phone so not the best. The food however was fall off the bone good!
Ok I was playing around with different setups on my wood burning drum and I had some spares defrosted so it got the call. This burn was with all cherry splits with a little oak mixed in...nothing beats the perfect smoke from cooking with real wood and that cherry smells GREAT!!! Cook temps went from 300* to 450* ....average probably 400* Believe it or not but these were slow cooked ribs for me and only took 3 1/2 hours, could have easily came off at the 3 hour mark but i wanted the bacon to really bake on. These were cooked naked (no foil)
Ok here's the cook.
1) scored up the membrane (this completely cooks off for me so no need to pull it)
2) Rubbed down with a little olive oil, applied sweet money and an all purpose rub.
3) Fired up the splits with about 1/8 chimney of briquettes
4) On to the grate with the ribs and one lb of bacon
Ok here's the rest from beginning to end.
Here the bacon was almost to the point to pull and take in for chopping
When the ribs get those golden bubbles (some call pig honey) it was time to coat with BBQ sauce and Bacon!!!
After spreading the bacon i dribbled more sauce on top and gently mixed it in
The ribs were cooked naked but i let it finish with foil underneath
Giving the ribs a short rest before cutting them up....maybe 10 minutes
Not sure what happened to the color of this pic but they were just like the first sliced pic.
These ribbies were so fall apart good...It's a must do!
