(First Post) Rack of Spares

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

Hello all, 

 

First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Adam, and I got into smoking about 8 months ago courtesy of my Grandfather. He was kind enough to give me his Primo Kamado Ceramic smoker. It's been a fun challenge learning to control the vents and dial in temps with this thing, and I appreciate ever mistake along the way. 

 

So enough about me, I decided to grab a rack of spares at my local grocer this last weekend and gave them a ride in the smoker on Sunday afternoon.

 

I smoked them at 250*F using lump charcoal and 2 chuncks of peach wood, for the rub I used Smokin Guns Sweet Heat which smelled amazing. At the 1 1/2 hr mark I sprayed them down with some apple juice every 1/2 hr. Once the ribs had been on for 3 hrs I brought them in and foiled them. I added blue bottle butter, honey, brown sugar more of the dry rub, and a couple spritz's of apple juice. After 1 1/2 hrs of being foiled I checked them for tenderness and the bones would wiggle pretty easily inside the meat so I took them out of the foil and added some Killer Hogs BBQ sauce for some glaze and set them back on the smoker for 15-20 mins with the smoker shut down to set the sauce. 

 

 

Enough talking, here's the final product!

They tasted fantastic, maybe a little too sweet, may go with a hotter rub to break it up next time.

Will do Al, truth be told I read your thread on perfect ribs and checking temps. So out of curiosity I checked my rib temp with my Thermapen before I cut into them. They were at 187* which I think turned out great.

Thanks Richie, it's always nice to have a mentor to show you the ropes thru something such as this. And the best part is getting to eat your mistakes! 

 

 

 

I'm toying with the Idea of doing a pork butt, or a Turkey Breast this weekend. I just love me some pulled pork. I will report back. Once again thanks everyone for the warm welcome.

Thanks again everyone. 

 

In order to out do myself from the ribs posted above. I recently found a Old Fashioned butcher shop about an hr from me (hard to find around here). So I went there yesterday and got two of these bad boys. 

 

(not pork lol) 

 

 

I will be cooking this on my smoker at 275* until IT is 120* (flipping at about 80-85*), then bringing them inside to finish the sear in my cast iron pan.

Good looking ribs, brother!

Interested in hearing and seeing what the smoker did for those good looking ribeye's.

 

I've used the Killer Hogs rub and liked it. What did you think of their sauce?
