    Just thought I'd share a real good rib smoke that got the season off right.  The particulars:

    MES 30" Digital Smokehouse

    Spares cut St. Louis.  I did the trimmings the same as the ribs, so they were also great and for many uses.

    AMNPS with 2 rows of Perect Mix pellets from cookinpellets.com

    Rub: Meathead's Memphis Dust http://www.amazingribs.com/recipes/rubs_pastes_marinades_and_brines/meatheads_memphis_dust.html

    225-230 F

    3-1.5-1 Method w/ Trigg's foil:brown sugar/parkay/honey/Tiger Sauce & PGSmoker's BDSE for the last hour (light glaze)

    This is a great rub, if you haven't tried it.  The ground rosemary is the key.

    Not fallin'off the bone...didn't want them that way.  Just a little pull is what I was after and that's what I got!  They were delicious.  Tender, not mushy with just the right amount of chew.  The rub/foiling goop and BDSE was a good combo, but a little too much on the sweet side.  Next time if I foil I'll put noting inside except a little apple juice.  The AMNPS comes through again.  If you don't have one, get one!

    Thanks, Chef.  I'm gonna use your foiling juice next time, if I foil.  I may go foil-less for comparison's sake.  But I'll certainly foil again sometime and I'll be trying your recipe.

    I have done both ways, the family prefers the foiled version. I too tried the Trigg method and thought them way too sweet. That is when I came up with the Foiling Juice. It adds some sweetness but not as cloying as what Mr. Trigg does. Since you use Your Rub, it is essentially your custom Recipe. Looking at that Rub, there is quite a bit of Sugar there as well...JJ
