Sorry it took so long to finish (little mrs decided to backup the computer last night with out telling me.....(the nerve of her!), and the camera conked out (accidentally left it on and it ran out of juice) Anyway, how things went:
1) The ribs took 4 hrs with no flipping or foiling. Did spritz with AJ 2 then 3 hrs into the smoke. Great texture with clean "bites" to the bone! Threw them out though
Tried a new rub and it was WAY TOO salty! Almost like biting a salt lick...
Guess the salt really came out during the smoke cause it was just fine when tasting it. Oh well, its happened before and will happen again. Not all smokes go according to plan (at least we had the Strami)!
2) The Strami came out par excellante'!
About 5 hrs of smoking, taking it to 165*. Sliced thin, then ate with deli mustard, kraute, and swiss! Very tasty.
Again, sorry for being so late and no Q-Views.
