first smoked ribs

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Smoked my first ribs today .. Fallin' off bone tender...just amazing for me.. I smoked them for about an hour and turned them after another hour at 225-30 and wraped in tin foil. Dwarf [wife] don't like a real strong
smoke flavor and since I had red oak onna pile, I knew it would be a bit strong for her. Used apple juice also. One of my hobbys is baking sourdough bread. I cooked them for 10 hours total. I only used
sea salt, corse ground black pepper , about a tablespoon of paprica
for color and a tablespoon of sugar. Made a rub outta it and let it work
overnite in the fridge. GOOD ... and simple. Been readin' and stealin'
idears offa this site.. Hemi.. [and corn onna cob ! ]

They tasted Goooooooood !!... This may be the wrong place to post
this but I gotta tell youall about the red ornamental iron on my smoker.
A friend at work told me that he had some cast iron antique wheels
that I could have for the cooker as I was building it in the shop at work.
Instead of him bringing the plain jane ones he told me about , he brought
me some fancier ones.
After I got them mounted I carped and griped at him for bringing the fancy ones because I now had to clean it up and paint it. I told him I was lucky he didn't bring me whitewall tires.. I asked him if Wrought iron was
too much? I did it just messin' with him. But these things seem to take on a life of their own. He didn't believe I would do it.. I did..
The wrought iron hooked to the flue [or chimney ] is because of grammaw. When I was a boy in the mountains of NC. I spent my summers
there with her. by necessity.. She didn't like me OR nobody else I can think of . Every year she tried to wear away a sumac or ivy vine that
grew up the chimney of that cabin. Hoe it, Hatchet it, Pull it out..
The year she almost got rid of it was the year she just tried cursing it dead. Anyways, the cabin burnt down years ago but the chimney
is still standing and the vine is doing just fine. [true story] So the vine
on the chimney is for her.. Hemi..

Ain't hard atall . just takes patience just the same as smokin' meat.
A word of caution.. with sourdough , if yer in a hurry just buy a loaf.

You should look at doing bread in a Dutch oven. Works great when your camping and there's no oven handy. Takes very little practice to get the temps right in cast iron and turns out an awesome loaf.
