    I put two 7.5 pound butts on the CGSP at 11:30am. When the smoker temp got to 240 an hour later, on went the babybacks.

    I expect the butts to be on til midnight or beyond. They are rubbed only with garlic powder, with fresh garlic jammed inside. The ribs are rubbed in the usual fashion.

    Sounds good. I'm interested in the garlic part of that, as I'm of the belief that Garlic can enhance anything. I've never used it in BBQ, though, hadn't even thought of it. Q-View would definitely be appreciated, sounds like a nice day though!

    Oh man, you have got to try adding some garlic to your Q.
    Even if only smoking a head of garlic into roasted garlic. One of the best pulled pork dishes I have made was garlic injected and rubbed.

    Good luck coyote, looking forward to the end, especially if you get some nice Qview action happening [​IMG]

    Garlic is a food group in my kitchen. [​IMG]

    The ribs are off now. They are delicious [​IMG]

    I just put the RediChek dual remote into play. Smoker temp 224, internal meat temp 164. Alarms are set to tell me when the smoker temp drops below 200, and the meat temp hits 190.

    Just to complete the 'log' portion of this:

    Butts went on 11:30am. Ambient temp @60, with some breezes but no big wind. Used 3 baskets of lump, with perhaps 8 small stick splits.

    8:20pm - internal temp 190. I'm gonna let the fire burn down with the butts in the smoker. I'll take them out @ 10pm.

    I'm pleased that they are ready after 9 hours! Will post Q-view tomorrow.

    Started eating it tonight. It came out pefect. Easily pullable all the way to the bone, yet nice & moist. While it's delicious, it could have used even more garlic!

    I used the 'runoff' from the ribs to make a sauce. In the pic you see them in a long pan. I smoke 'em for 2+ hours, then put them in that pan with a splash of fresh apple cider. After that sits covered for 2 more hours, it has produced lots of juice - I use that juice as the base for the sauce, and for the pulled pork I simply added some vinegar and then reduced it over the stove for awhile.

    If you add brown sugar and chopped onions & peppers etc it makes a great BBQ sauce. But of course, because it's a pork broth thing you have to use it quickly or freeze it.

    I froze one whole butt, using my standard vacuum seal method (freezer ziploc bag and a straw lol). Maybe that will be my SuperBowl party contribution.

    I brought some for lunch today.
    Tonight I have to cut the racks of ribs in half and freeze them - after having some ribs for dinner. [​IMG]
