    Awesome Baby Backs Today

    I have to admit that I have not cooked BB's on the KJ Clasic II until today. We just haven't had rib in a while and the last trip to the store I scored some nice ones. I would like to say they were cheap but....not, $6.99 lb. But, anyway, here we go. Trimmed and rubbed. Cooker warmed up...

    Unwrapped Baby Back Ribs

    I cook plenty of St Louis ribs, but the wife is partial to baby backs and I enjoy them too, so they show up more often at our place. I've always had great success just cooking straight through on the Camp Chef with no wrap, 3-2-1, 2-2-1 or anything else. In the last few months, I've...

    First Baby Back Ribs cook with some questions

    First, I have a Smoke Vault 18. I bought some costco baby back ribs to cook in the rain yesterday. I use the 3 1 1 method for an almost fall off the bone texture. I had to cut 3 bones off of the end of each rack to fit them in and I put 2 on the 2nd rack from the bottom and 1 on...

    First try results with NexGrill barrel offset smoker from Home Depot Pork Baby Back Ribs

    Hey everyone, I'm new here. I decided to buy a Home Depot NexGrill barrel offset smoker. After a lot of research I bought it expecting the worst due to it's hefty cost of $149 lol. Peeled the silver skin off, and used a cold water rinse. I used brine of 1/4 c white sugar and 1/2 c Kosher salt...

    Baby backs: water tray or no?

    Hello, first post here. I'm trying to improve the tenderness and also greatly increase the intensity of smoke flavor in my baby back ribs. Tomorrow, I'm going to try running two 12" pellet tubes at once (in a gas grill), with the Pit Boss Charcoal Blend pellets I just purchased after seeing...

    Wrapped my ribs in foil before smoking

    So of course the first time i attempt the 2 1 1 method of smoking ribs without recipe reference, I goofed and instead if letting them sit bare on the wrack for the first 2 hours I wrapped them tight in foil and put them in, not realizing my mistake until the 2 hour alarm went off. I'm positive...

    Spare VS Baby Back Cook Times

    I smoked one rack each tonight of Spare and Baby Back. I smoked the spares for 6 hours and smoked the baby backs for 5 hours. 225 degrees the whole time. My spares has nice pull back and we’re perfect. However, the baby backs didn’t really have much pull back and seemed like they could have...

    3-2-1 Baby Back Ribs

    I've been working on my Baby Back Ribs & reading a lot of the posts about it here on these forums. These are the best ribs I've made yet. I did the 3-2-1 method & used a slightly modified version of @chef jimmyj 's foiling juice. That juice is amazing and using it as a glaze at the end is the...

    Rotisserie Babybacks!! Adam made me do it!!

    I bought a rotisserie attachment for my Santa Maria rig on my kettle. The first thing I made was a chicken. I only took one photo, but it turned out really good. Tender & juicy with a slight hint of hickory smoke with nice crispy skin. After seeing Adams post about spinning ribs, I just had to...

    Too much fussin' - go with naked ribs

    A number of years ago I got tired messing around with the 3-2-1 or 2-2-1 methods and went back to putting them on an leaving them until done. I won't say this is anything special but it's the recipe I've been using for quite some time with consistent success. BTW, signature has some sauces if...

    First Electric Baby Back Ribs with Q-View

    Got an MES-30 digital a couple of months ago and I am loving it. With my ECB, smoking used to be equal parts anticipation and dread, with eight hours of stressfully checking the temps every five minutes to make sure nothing was going wrong (in either direction), but electric... I know it's...

    On Mother's Day Judy wanted a PR, so we had one left in the freezer. I thought I would just smoke it in the Lang without any seasoning on it at all. It came out fantastic, I had some frozen beef Au Jus that we thawed & used as a sauce. Then Friday night I did a nice 2" thick Choice Angus...
