Nice day, first rack of ribs in a long time

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Linda has been asking for them for a while, and I finally had time for a long smoke today.

 

I picked up a medium-sized slab but I had to be careful because the first two in the case had loose crackly cryovac sleeves - fail!

 

Cut in half and sprinkled with some old "cajun" rub made by a friend, nothing else. It has a bit of celery-seed aroma. Now to make the fire. And this morning's biscuits just for the heck of it.

 

 

 

A base of Stubbs charcoal, with some scrap honeysuckle as a starter. Now I wait for the CC to heat up, it was 150 and climbing last time i checked.

 

 

 

The conditions are perfect, sunny and warm  and almost perfectly calm. Flowers blooming, birds singing, etc.

One hour in at 275, so far so good. I'm not running the smoke deflector this time so it's hotter to the right. I'll just switch them side to side.

 

I like this Stubbs, it's a long steady burn.

Looks like a perfect way to spend the day. I agree on the Stubb's briquettes. They're absolutely awesome!

Two hours in, the piece on the right just got mopped with a regular bbq sauce and the one on the left is about to be mopped with an Asian bbq version.

Looks great what sauce did you like better?

I preferred the Asian version but it was still based on a standard bbq sauce (sweet baby ray's)
