Spare Rib Dinner (no foil)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

First time no wrap and I'm impressed!

 

Had one rack in the freezer for the past 3 weeks. Decided to eat late tonight and toss them onto the WSM.

 

Kept smoke on them for about 2.5 hours and then just let them go from there. Smoked at 220 / 240 the entire time (too low or just right?)

 

Discoveries:

 

- Next time i'll apply smoke for the entire cook

- Could not tell much of a flavor difference from wrapped to not wrapped but if I had to choose I would select no wrap

- Perhaps wrapped ribs are just a bit more moist

- Good tenderness with no wrap

- Did not miss the wrap step one bit at all, I've always thought it was a pain!!

 

Rubbed and ready to go.

 

Onto the WSM.

 

 

1 hour in a little snack showed up.

 

2.5 hours in.

 

4 hours in.

 

All done! 5 hours. Bad to the bone...

 

 

 

 

 

 


Despite a lot of checking, they still turned out really, really good.  My overall realization is, I like both wrapped and non-wrapped ribs, however; non-wrapped will probably be my go-to way now.

 

Thanks,
Bryce

I've never wrapped my ribs and they have always turned out good. Glad to see that you had a good experience with unwrapped.

Thanks guys.

Yeah i was a chicken prior to this worried that they'd turn out to dry and too tough if i didn't wrap - and that was completely wrong.

Thanks a lot! They were really good - we were happy. Even had a couple left over for this afternoon. Heated them up in foil, with some apple juice, in the oven, Worked out really well for a reheat.

 

Have a nice night!

Well, Bryce, the ribs look great. The qview is terrific. However, there is one problem. I wasn't invited.
