Yesterday's Q-View

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Although it was raining and miserable yesterday, I needed a smoke fix! I was on a tight schedule, so I decided to do some ribs. I'll tell ya', I think these were the best ones yet...

I did the usual prep with rub on Saturday for the next day's smoke. So yesterday, I ran the smoker up to 250, using RO lump and hickory chunks. Once the smoke and temp stablized, the ribs and skirt meat hit the grates. I adjusted the heat to 225 for the duration.

One of the racks of ribs started to pull back at a 2 hours, so I foiled them, adding a mix of apple juice and Old Grand-Dad. The other rack started pulling back at about 2 1/2 hours, then it got the same treatment.

I left them both in the foil for about 1 1/2 hours, then removed the foil, sauced with a little homemade Q sauce and let each of them go for 1/2 hour more on the grates.

They were AWESOME!! The meat came off the bone with a little crunch... perfect! The scraps were pulled off the grates when the first rack came off. They got chunked up and now await their final destination in the freezer...

Here's the beginning:

My trusty rain protection:

They're done!

The ribs look GREAT! Can you send some of them down here along with all of that rain. We need rain here. I would be happy to sit on the porch watching the rain on the lake eating some ribs.
