Well here they are from start to finish!

Ready to go in the smoker.

The smoker is ready to go.
I wonder if we're driving the neighbors nuts?????PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

I've never smoked beans before - but they're in there with the ribs and geeze it smells good!

Dinner's on!

I loved the ribs! They were tender, flavorful, and altogether on the to do again and again list.

I'm playing with a new camera and trying to figure it out. Funny they didn't come out very big. Oh well I'll play with them later - now to get the piggy in the smoker.

Probably not the camera. I can't think of any that shoot a photo that small. More than likely your upload host. Were you copying the URL address from a Thumbnail image? If that is the case, that's the reason for the small pic. Try clicking on the thumbnail image, opening it, then copy THAT URL address.
If that is not the case, possibly as Photobucket does, you may have an upload size OPTIONS. In photobucket you can selet upload size by setting to any preference you have, although it is best to keep them no more than 800 pixels wide. This keeps us from having to scroll right to view the whole image.

Now to more important stuff. How long did you do the beefies for?
And I want you to promise me that you will marinade them in Mojo when you do them again in the future. biggrin.gif

We did them a 225 for 2 1/2 hours, wrapped them in foil for 1 1/2 hours and then let them rest.

They were fantastic. It was also my first time doing the beans and those were amazing. I'm tossing my bottle of liquid smoke in the trash! What the heck do I need that for?

Where is the mojo recipe posted? I'll be sure to try it.

Ya know, it's been so long since I've done any photo uploading - you're right.
As soon as the piggy's on smoking I'll redo them.

You can find Mojo Crillio in the stores, usually in the Ethnic isle. Goya is one brand you see the most, but it has no stickum power. I prefer Iberia, Badia or Conchita. These are much thicker and adhere to the meat better.

you can Google Mojo Crillio and get some recipes. Below is one I used in a pinch when I couldn't find any in a store. It is magic on Beef. PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

4 garlic cloves, minced ( I use minced from jar)
1 jalapeno, minced
(Used crushed red peppers instead 1 ½ tsp)
1 large handful fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped (used 1 tblsp Parsley)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper)
2 limes, juiced (used one of the store bought lime juice limes, around ½ cup)
1 orange, juiced
(used store bought OJ, around ½ cup)
2 tablespoons white vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil
¼ cup bitter orange
½ cup red onion chopped
Finely chop and mix together the garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Add the lime juice, orange juice, vinegar, and oil. Shake it up really well to combine. Use as a marinade for chicken or beef or as a table condiment.
Yield: approximately 1 1/4 cups

Flash that sounds really really good. My DD (aka the Blonde Tornado) doesn't eat beef, pork, or lamb so this might be something she would like on chicken. I'll run it by her. Thanks so much.

My DIL is a Vegan. PDT_Armataz_01_05.gif Its tough on her when she comes to visit. My SIL is NOT and loves my Bar-B-Que. Drives her nuts. There daughter use to be, but she is in Middle School now and seeing alot of different foods. Slowly she is coming around. The newest member of their family, my grandson, he is nothing but a meat eater. Good boy. biggrin.gif
As to mojo and chicken, if you use it, don't do more than 4 to 5 hours tops. You can do beef all night.
