First Shot at Ribs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Bought a couple of racks of spare ribs, and ran them through the GOSM using the 3-2-1 method, modified to more like 2.5-2-1 mothod biggrin.gif I was hitting them with an apple juice spritz about every 20 - 30 minutes during the 2.5 phase, then doused them with some sauce a few minutes after un-foiling.

Sorry, but no pics on the start of the project as the cam batteries were dead, but here they are hitting the foil at hour 2.5:

And out of the foil after 2 with some sauce:

Sauce was definitely an asset. I live with a pair of "would-be" vegetarians, so if things aren't just right, they default to...shudder....broccoli!!!!! Luckily, these made the cut, and Chopper Jr said they were the best she has ever eaten...although she is only 8 years old, I still take it as a compliment :o)

2nd smoking attempt

I tried smoking ribs for the second time saturday, my first attempt was good, but not great (too smokey-used hickory chunks with lump charcol) this time i followed some good advice from Jeff and others from the forum... i used a "kansas city rib rub" recipe from the internet, but first coated with yellow mustard(per Jeff!) and smoked with the same lump charcol and applewood chips. i also mopped every hour(from 2 hours onward) with apple juice, this was a winner!! points.gifmy family loved them, they had a great crust and were juicy and sweet with just a little heat. it took 8 hours as it was a windy day and i had a little problem keeping my heat up in the smoker because of it...

I think the biggest compliment was that no one went looking for barbeque sauce to have with them!!

next week we are having a big cook out, first time going public with my ribs... maybe try a brisket or pork shoulder too... but i think i will try jeffs rub and sauce recipes this time... wish me luck!! icon_mrgreen.gif
