Rubbed the four pieces with Memphis dust:
Rubbed an Untrimmed rack of spares with Jeff's rub for tomorrow night's dinner:
Put the spares on the bottom grate of my WSM 18 and the pork cushions on the top grate. Cooked at about 275-300 with a mosh mash of what I had leftover as far as coal and wood. Some Stubbs, some KBB, and some hickory and apple chunks mixed in.
I foils the ribs after about three hours. Let it go about another hour and here is what I had:
Ribs out of the foil:
Pork cushion after 4 hours:
Decided to stop cooking he ribs as I will sauce and heat tomorrow for dinner!
At around 5 hours in the cushion is at about 180:
For the sake of time I foiled them and they came up to 205 about 40 minutes later:
Let them sit for an hour or so and then pulled:
Came out great! Cushion makes a good pulled pork. Not as juicy and fatty as a butt but plenty of moisture and tenderness. My plan is to reheat this on Saturday to bring to the block party. I'll probably toss is with the defatted foiling juices and some BBQ sauce to reheat.
Well thanks for looking! I'm glad to be back in action. I actually missed that smell that clings to your clothes after a long day of smoking!
