My next stepOk here is my plan, comments welcome.
I am going to start off with a couple of racks of ribs, 1 Baby Back and 1 St Louis.
After looking into alot of rubs, I decided to try to make my own. So, I spent about 5 hours last weekend mixing up 20 batchs of different rubs from various websites/books and my own mixes, some with a lot of sugar and some with no sugar. I also had a little help from my 8 year daughter who made her own special batch., which wasn't half bad.
I smoked some pork ribs since there were .99 a pound and if they came out un-editable my lab was going to get them. Anyway, for the most part they were all pretty good but as I figured, we preferred the ones with little or no sugar, cumin and chili powder and leaned to the ones with the garlic, onion, white pepper, black pepper etc.
So, my next step is to take the 2 we preferred the best and put half on each rack and give them a try.
