Experimental Saturday Smoke

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Decided to smoke a couple racks of spares along with ABTs & moink balls. I know the no pics-didn't happen thingy, but I left the camera at the office so you just have to trust me. icon_wink.gif

I also decided to experiment a bit today. First, I went simple from the start. No slather. No complex rub. I gave them a good dusting of Lawrys Season Salt & a lite dusting of TCs Creole Seasoning. I had trimmed the spare StL sytle & the tips & flap samples with just this simple rub let the pork flavor really come thru.

After 3 hours at 235-245, I foiled the spares with my version of the Johnny Trig style -- brown sugar, parkay & tiger sauce. (I don't care much for honey so I left that out). I wasn't sure how I would like the results, so I went light on all the ingredients. After 2 hours in foil, they looked awesome -- all moist & shiny & smelled even better. Gave them a good coat of my homemade BBQ sauce & put them back on the glaze. Everyone was anxious to eat so I pulled them after 40 mins. They were perfect. Moist, tender & just the right amout of "tug" when you took a bite.

I did some ABTs with cream cheese & pepperoni. I did some moink balls & glazed them with a chipolte citrus marinade I found at the store this morning. This is a great flavor profile.

I also did a slightly different baked bean recipe. Used a 22 oz can of Bushs Grilling Beans Southern BBQ Flavor. I added 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup ketchup, 1 1/2 tbs worchestshire sauce, 1/2 tbs ground mustard & some chopped up rib tips. Son said they were the best baked beans he had ever eaten.

So all my experiments were successful & I'm now in my recliner with a very full bellybiggrin.gif
