Ribs for the 4th - Q-view!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Doings some spares in the MES for today's BBQ. Chicken, burgers and dogs going on the grill icon_smile.gif. Full load about 27lbs of ribs.

Was a rainy start here, got up at 4:30 and pouring outside. My tarps have so many holes they are not much use to cover up the MES. Had a coffee and got an idea icon_idea.gif, make an umbrella plant..LOL. My company gave us these goofy umbrellas with their logo for an appreciation gift, finally found a use for it. Things you think of while your tired icon_smile.gif.

Heres the Q-view will post more later PDT_Armataz_01_29.gif.

Thanks..lol. The umbrella trick got me by the storms ok icon_smile.gif. Ribs are foiled and back in. I'll have to catch up with the q-view after the festivities icon_smile.gif.

I go simple on the ribs now. Rub on some evoo and garlic and herb seasoning. Then sauce them with some Bullseye bbq sauce.

See ya later with some q-view, the little woman is giving me some dirty looks as she is working and I'm on the computer biggrin.gif.

Didn't get a chance to take pics of the grilled stuff, it was a little hectic getting things ready. But did get pics of the ribs, everyone loved them icon_smile.gif.

So full now I can hardly type biggrin.gif.

Here's the rest of the ribs. Used hickory, temp 240.

About 2.5 hrs, mopped with apple juice.

3.5hrs, hit them with apple juice again.

Out to foil at 4hrs. Because of the volume, it took a while to initially get back up to temp after loading. I gave them an extra hour for make up time. Waited until they felt right.

I gave them 1hr 20 min in the foil with some apple juice. Sauced with Bullseye and back in the smoker for 45 min. Not a bad smoke ring for an electric (charcoal assisted) biggrin.gif.

Dave..outstanding....nice pics.

Want to get the terms right as I am a newbie...when you brought them 'out' after 4 hrs, you wrapped them in foil and they just sit and don't go back in the smoker for 1.5 hrs??...then 45 min in to warm um back up and serve??

Hi eaglewing icon_smile.gif

I usually do something similar to the 3-2-1 method.

Links are listed in the forum for various methods and tips on the far left side of the main forum page.



3 = 3hrs in the smoke, pull and wrap in foil with a little liquid to braise. Apple juice is good. Back in the smoker.

2 = 2hr cooked in the foil, no wood/smoke necessary (smoke can't get through the foil). This step makes them real tender. Pull and remove foil. Back in the smoker.

1 = 1hr smoking with wood again (wood is optional) after removing foil. You can sauce them at this point. This step firms them back up a little and finishes them off. Your done icon_smile.gif.

Baby Backs are more like 2-2-1

These are just guidelines, still use your judgment to get them the way you want PDT_Armataz_01_29.gif.
