    Decided to do some ribs for a dinner with some family. Did about a 2.5~1.5~1 method at 230

    Rubbed them with mustard and Tuffy Stone's rub  and let them sit overnight. 3 racks cut in half.

    Placement in the MES 30 with AMNPS burning oak in the bottom left. Pan to catch drips. Got 2.5-3 hrs smoke from only 1 row.

    After 2.5-3 hrs smoke. Time to foil and add apple juice

    After around 1.5hrs of being foiled with apple juice

    After about an hour more uncovered

     Sauced all but 1 rack (most preferred wet)

    some mac and cheese

    and beans

    and s'more bread pudding for dessert

    not pictured-rolls, cookies, salad

    Turned out tasty. Everyone ate a lot and had a good time.

    Don't think the leftovers are going to last 40 hrs!

    Looks awesome. I got a pork butt on now with three slabs of baby backs waiting in the fridge. Thanks for the motivation at this hour.

    Looks Great, Travis!!!

    Was that all it took, a little more blowing on the coals?

    Those look awesome buddy. I'm gonna try some tomorrow for the first time.

    When you used the apple juice did you you just pour some into the pan or did you put it in its own container and just sit it in the pan?
    Did you sauce them at all for the last hour uncovered?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think that helped, I lit and relit that thing like five times, although I'd tried that before.. And I think I found the sweet spot with my chip loader and pan. It also helped that there was a little breeze that day blowing into the vent.

    I put the apple juice right into the pan with the ribs and covered them with foil. This gives them a little bit of a steaming effect. You can also save the juices when you're done and boil them down, add some maple syrup, and you have a glaze. I have the recipe if you're interested.

    I sauced them for about the last 15 min during the last hour uncovered. I also upped the heat for the last few minutes to help with caramelization.

    Good luck today and let me know if you have any other questions!

    The ribs look great Travis!

    I'm a Tuffy fan so I'll have to check out that rub recipe.

    It was pretty basic and easy but I enjoyed it. I'd recommend it!

    Amazing! The MES sure puts out some outstanding Q!!! Nice job! 
  20. Looks good. I like the pan vs. just wrapping in foil. I always seem to get a leak when wrapping.
