My 4th of July weekend all-nighter with Q-View

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

I'm doing 3 racks of baby backs with brown sugar the same way that I did the one over here: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/95562/baby-backs-with-brown-sugar

 

with the following two exceptions:

 

1)  I let them sit in the molasses and brown sugar for 11-12 hours, and

2)  I will be spritzing them with apple juice after about 2 - 2.5 hours every 45 minutes to an hour

 

When they are done I will change the wood to Hickory and smoke some brats and dogs.  The idea is to have everything ready by lunch on Sat.

 

***NOTE***

 

If you're going to try the brown sugar route then use C&H Cane Brown Sugar.  It is the best quality, and it melted almost instantly whereas the cheaper brand that I used before took nearly 1.5 hours!

 

Here is a pic of them getting ready to go into the smoker (more will follow):

We're getting a little bit of rain here tonight, but that's OK because my MES is just inside the garage.  The TBS is still happening, and I am very happy.

Nice Myth,

I hope these get as good as those last ones did!

 

One question---How hard does that bark get---Thick & chewy or hard & crunchy? Just wondering. Might want to try this one myself.

 

 

Thanks,

Bear

Those look real nice, Myth!  Hope the sound of those rain drops didn't put you to sleep after being up all night.  MiamiRick seemed to have a pretty good idea!

 

I tried the Mempis Rub yesterday on some spares and it was quite tasty.  Prepared'em the night before, dusted a little more with the rub before putting them on and then sprayed them with a apple juice/cider vinegar mix.  Wasn't to spicy or hot and had a real good taste. Thanks for sharing!

DANGIT!!!

 

I fell asleep right after the 1st spritz and didn't get up until 9:30am!!!!!!!  

 

Fortunately, my MES timer was set for the right amount of time (which is unusual -- I usually set it for longer), but I went out there frantically and foiled them praying to the smoking gods that they haven't dried out.

 

So, no pics just yet.  I can tell you that I won't spritz again, though, because it lightened up my beautiful black bark.

 

I'll get some pics when I go to slice them.  One of them ripped in half when I was taking it off of the rack, and I tasted a chunk of it.  Seems to be OK, but I really won't know until I slice them.

 

So, now on to the brats and dogs with hickory...

 

And, also, I think that I better finish this beer.

OK, here are some pics...NICE SAVE, MR. MES!!!

 

A bit dry but nothing that some sauce can't handle:

And the brats and dogs going in:

It's raining now, but the B&D's are safe in the garage and have about an hour to go.  The ribs are in the oven @ 170.

I would say neither.  It's virtually undetectable except for the taste.

They actually weren't dry at all and were a huge hit.

 

Thanks, everyone!
