I picked up some spare ribs at Sam's for a smoke on Memorial Day and we ended up getting invited over to my brother in laws for smoked ribs on Monday. So I decided since you can't eat ribs too often, I would just smoke mine up today. And my sister in law is eating with us today, there may be a little rib competition going on.
After reading a recent post on a straight cook with a rub and brown sugar glaze, I decided to go that route. After cleaning up the ribs they got a good coat of Jeff's rub. Then a decent layer of brown sugar.
Almost done melting
Then I started putting together some taters. I have never smoked taters but I did some reading on here and figured out it can easily be done.
I took a cookie cutter and cored out the split taters a little bit and filled the cavity with butter. Then some Lawrys and a little bit of brown sugar. I put the cored piece of tater back on top with some olive oil and parmesan cheese.
Now its all ready. The brown sugar is all melted and running all over the place. In the smoker now at 225 with some hickory chunks.
I am eagerly waiting and waiting and waiting. Oh and waiting.
