Trying them all

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by indyboy, May 30, 2009.

  1. Fellow smokers, Can't tell you how nice it is to find a good website to learn about the fine art of smoking! I have a Masterbuilt electric smoker and just started using it 3 weeks ago. SO far, have done bbacks, chicken, and rib tips. Bought some riblets yesterday and am assuming I smoke them the same way I do regular ribs - just shorter - true? Thanks in advance for your input!

    Welcome to SMF. Glad you joined us. I'm not familiar with riblets, but someone will be along shortly who can answer your question for you. Did you do a search in the pork thread yet?

    Welcome and enjoy the forum. I have an MES also and really enjoy it.

    What is a ribblet? Only thing that comes to my mind is the pressed pork McDonalds sometimes sells.
  4. They are pork loin riblets - looks like they were cut off the end - kind of like a rib tip, but meatier and longer (1-3"). No membrane on the bottom, etc. ALso - Irish - did read thru the Pork Rib section and didn't see them mentioned. Plan to rub them down, etc. That's why I decided to ask. I did rib tips last week along with chicken and think I may have left them in too long - though I didn't let any go to waste! :) BTW Werdwolf, these are DEFINITELY too good for McDonalds!

    First welcome to SMF. As far as riblets I think that their the part that is cut off the rib rack when you cut them kanas city style. You can cook them like regular ribs using the 2-1-1 method( I think) it's a smaller cut. So give it a try and let us know. That's what we do hear try and share.
  6. Thanks MBallii! That's what I was looking for! Indy Boy

    Welcome to SMF Indy - Looks like your off on the right foot!
  10. Took the 2-1-1 advice and the Riblets came out great! Thanks to all of you for both the advice and the welcome as the Newbie! Looking forward to learning more from y'all! Indy Boy
