    Well not really. 4 racks, too long to fit in my MES 30in, so I cut them in half. 8 half racks.


    Took off the membrane
    Jeff's Book BBQ Rub recipe
    Rest for 30mins



    Smoked using the 3-2-1 method, soaked in Apple Juice during the foil phase



    And somehow I forgot to take a picture of the final. But here's my verdict:

    Too much smoke. Should've smoked only 1/2 as long as I did. If I recall, I did smoke almost the entire time.

    The membrane: Not sure if I didn't get it all off or what. They were a bit tough and hard to get off the bone. I probably should have smoked them longer but I had company over. Overall they were good but not as good as I wanted.

    any suggestions? (Other than remembering to take pictures?)

    M, Try a 3-2-1 to get a tender rib,light smoke for the first 3 hours is enough.

    Sorry, I need to update my original post. I actually did the 3-2-1 method. I bet if I had left them in there for another hour they would've been better.
