Ribs 3 ways...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This past weekend I wanted to do some ribs.  I didn't know the exact flavor I was looking for, so I did them three different ways. I used some cherry as my smoke wood.

 

 

Step 1 - Ribs went on sale

 

Step 2 - wrapped and ready

The top rack was a cajun butter injected with a cajun spice rub recipe I found somewhere - Good and had a little heat

 

Middle rack Jeff's rub

 

Bottom rack - something completely different (aimed at my wife's taste buds, too sweet for my taste)

 

Step 3 - The remains of the three rubs

 

Step 4 - Three sauces

Left - Jeff's original

Center - spicy rib sauce to balance the sweet for my wife's ribs - had pineapple juice, but was very spicy

Right - "Cajun" bbq sauce - I found it on YouTube, but it was a little disappointing

 

Step 5 - Smokin'

 

Step 6a - Out of the Smoker, ready for wrapping

 

Step 6b - another rack ready for wrapping

 

Step 7 - Out of the foil - This was my wife's rack - I used a pineapple/rum baste for the foil juice

 

Step 8 - Cajun Rack ready for saucing and finishing

 

Step 9 - chicken pineapple skewers in case the wife didn't like her ribs

 

Step 10 - Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese

Not pictured was my Wasabi and peanut cole slaw

 

Step 11 - Sauce, Finished and Resting

 

Step 12 - Final Product

 

Overall it was a good smoke.  I pulled the off the heat at 195F, per Al's suggestion. Not fall off the bone, but that's how I like it. My favorite was by far the one with Jeff's rub and Sauce. The rack I did for my wife I won't do again, but it was worth a shot. The sides were great.

Another excellent review for Jeff's rub and sauce. I have done a ton of research and comparisons with rubs and sauces. Jeff's is by far the one for me, my family and friends. I always recommend it to new smokers and I can do so with all of the confidence in the world.

The cook that you did with the various rubs and sauces was an excellent comparison and they each looked awesome. icon14.gif

Nice job!

 

Great comparison!

 

Everything looks delicious!

 

That final shot of the rib looks perfect!

 

Point!
