    Temp dip after wrapping ribs

    Hey All, I am new to smoking meats. I don’t have anything fancy to smoke my meats in so I use my charcoal grille and just offset the coals and wood on 1 side of the grille. Often enough, when smoking ribs, I try to follow the 3.2.1 method but I feel the internal temperature matters more than...

    How to use Rice Koji in this rib wet-brine?

    I'm wanting to make this for my family and it calls for "70 grams koji" for 3L of water. You're wet brining the ribs with it overnight. Would I be using the dry grains? Or when it's fermented into the shio paste? Thanks! https://www.starchefs.com/recipes/pork-ribs

    Flashback ~ Rib Recipe from Better Homes & Gardens Barbecue Book

    Let's take a trip in the wayback machine to the mid 1950's and see how ribs were being seasoned and cooked. This barrel set-up could be a predecessor of the WSM or drum smokers.

    Weekend Chicken & Ribs

    I decided to try two new recipes for my chicken and ribs cook. For the chicken, I used Big Mo Cason's rub and then created two new sauces from scratch. For the chicken, I used an apricot sauce and for the ribs, I used a sauce with Gulden's mustard. I used a homemade rub on the ribs and cooked...

    Vaccuum Sealing in the middle of a rib cook.........when? Should I?

    Hey smokers, my question has to do with partially cooking ribs and then freezing them half way through the process. Previously I have smoked my St.Louis ribs for 3 hrs, then ovened for two, then froze them until I wanted to eat them. When I smoke I smoke a lot at a time and freeze for later...
