Baby backs, chix, and some fresh morels

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I haven't had a chance to post any Qview lately or smoke much for that mater. Today I got my priorities straight and got some things going.
Got some nice baby back slabs at RD. 3 nice slabs in the pack so I took out half and vac sealed the others and put in the freezer
removed the membrane and gave them a nice coating of my rub and garlic.
I am smoking over apple wood today and will do them at about 225 for around 6 hours.I put them on about an hour ago. no foil. just a little spritz of captain apple every hour or so after about 2 hours.
I also seasoned up some nice fresh chicken quarter with some Old Bay and my rub.They will go on later as they will only take about 3 hours.
I had a chance to take a quick look and found a few fresh morel mushrooms today so I will be frying them up for a side and also some kind of potato.
more to come
restaurant depot has nice baby backs. I think I gave 2.69lb for these

seasoned up and resting

some fresh leg quarters

fresh harvested morel mushrooms

I agree RD does have some really nice ribs, you get those @ the Lombard location?

OMG those morels look great. I sure miss those from Mo. We have found a few in Az in the higher elevations. But very few and no patterns of growth like back east. PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Now I would take some of those mushrooms any way that I could get them. Now the rest of the food looks great and I bet the ribs will be great. So I guess I'll have to stop back in later.

Those mushrooms look excellent and so does the rest. Used to hunt the shrooms along the Missouri river in SoDak. Man they were good.
