Wanted STL ribs but BB is all the market had fresh. They said they don't get STL until "smoking season" which confused me a bit.
smeared with maple syrup then the rub.
I prefer a bit spicier rub so the sweet syrup was an amazing contrast for flavor. I used "Jeff's rub" although I up the cayenne a bit.
3 hours into smoke before I even opened the lid. Held 240° fairly well. Think I should have done higher. Lesson learned.
The wife is pretty good at doctoring up store-bought sauce. Had her use the rest of the syrup instead of the usual honey addition. Great choice in my opinion.
About 45 minutes left I threw the veggies in the smoker too. Simple flavor, infused olive oil and garlic powder with a bit of Pepper.
Aren't they beautiful?
Felt like a new father, so proud!!
Can't forget the sides! Also made a homemade mac-n-cheese.
Thank you SMF for getting me into this hobby, couldn't have done it without you.
