Ribs take Two

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Well my first shot at ribs sucked pretty bad, going with a much better looking cut of meat this time.  Using Maple lump charcoal with apple wood chunks, 2-2-1 method, and plenty of cold beer.  Here is a shot when they came out of the fridge from sitting all night with Jeff's rub and another shot just before going in after some apple juice spritzing.

Just wrapped them in foil with some more apple juice spritz, a little butter, and a touch of brown sugar. Gonna make up some of jeffs sauce now and get that ready for the final hour!

Well, they are done and I gotta say they look a ton better than last weekend's attempt (those were spare ribs) I have them wrapped in foil, towels, and in the cooler until I get the rest of dinner together. All in all, a nice day of smokin' and drinkin'

I hope they taste as good as they look! The salad is made, the corn is on the grill, almost time to unwrap the ribs!!

They came out really good, I think I could have had them in a touch longer. I did not get alot of "pull back" exposing the bones but they were very moist and the rub/sauce combo was a hit!

What temps did you smoke at? Maybe a little more time in the foil?

temps maintened very steady around 230-240. I only had them in the foil for about 1.5hrs, then pulled them and had them in the smoke for another 1.5 hours. 5 hours total.  Next time I will leave them in the foil for 2
