    Baby backs last night.

    Did a couple racks of baby backs at 225 using a modified 3-1-1 method wrapping in butcher paper. Flavor was spot on, very tender with just the right amount of pull off the bone. A little disappointed with color and lack of pull back but they tasted good just the same. Trying my first attempt at...

    Boneless short rib burnt ends, pork belly burnt ends and queso

    Did two types of burnt ends and queso for the fourth! Never tried ends from boneless short ribs but stole the idea from here. Did the whole smoke at 250 on my Char-Griller gravity. I still prefer the stick burner or my UDS but this thing does good work. Happy 4th all!!

    I smoked a butt today for a party tomorrow. I pulled it tonight but I have to reheat in a crock pot tomorrow due to no space on the smoker tomorrow.

    2-2-1 W/ Baby Backs

    Baby Backs were on sale at my local grocery store so I grabbed some and decided to smoke a rack on the AKORN yesterday. I planned on using the 2-2-1 method but actually went with a 2-1.5-.5 and they still came out to fall off the bone for me. I mean there was ZERO pull, the meat fell off even...
