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.
