Smokin 3 racks of St Louis style ribs tomorrow.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Made up Jeff's "Naked Rib Rub" last night, and did a lot of reading to prepare.
This morning a friend gave me some Apple wood, so cut it into chunks. Not sure if they should be soaked. Tested my new Maverick ET-733 Wireless Meat Thermometer and found my gauges on the cooking chamber are running 30 degrees higher than the Maverick. Smoked a hot dog for my daughter. Coals will still be ready for the Royal Oak lump I found on clearance at Tractor Suply (17.6 lbs @ $3.00). Ribs go on at 9:00 am thinking they might be ready around 3:00. grilling_smilie.gif

Soaking wood is a waste. It won't make smoke until it dries anyway. Nice smoker! Need a Whole Hog to feed that belly...JJ

JJ, Okay,....the wood is two years old. Just didn't know if it should be soaked or not. The first smoke was with a 90 lb pig. Thanks for the tip and compliment.

Good looking Hog. Do you cook them with the Belly up so the fat basted the rest of the Hog?

Stuffed and on its back for 6 hours.

It was done at 6:00 am and people weren't showing up until noon, so I kept it worm. About 50 people showed up through out the day. It was my "Double Nickles B-Day Party".
