It's been a while since I've post any qview of my ribs. My 10 year old son has been on my case about making him some. So being the giving father that I am, here's some ribs my dear boy. I started with 2 racks of loin back ribs. I got them for $3.39lb. No mustard. Just rub. The one on top is rubbed with Gates Original, the other with Smokin' Guns Hot. I rubbed them last night, the picture is from this morning so they look a little wet. The Smokin' Guns went down on the bottom and the Gates on top. Let the waiting begin. Had a little snow the other day. I decided to try a little different cooking method. Instead of 225 and a 3-2-1 or a variation of that method, I decided to cook around 250*. I did these without foil or spritz. In fact the lid only got opened one time through the entire cook. They cooked for 5 hours and were really some of the best ribs I've ever made. Again, Gates is on top and the Smokin' Guns is below. Served these with some green beans and biscuts. I also made a moink loaf since the wife and daughter aren't crazy about ribs. I'll post that next. Wife did eat a couple of ribs though and said she liked them this time. I have a friend that does some smoking too and we share recipes and sample each others food. I took him over 3 of each type of rub. I didn't even consider his wife and kids. I dropped them off and he texted me a few minutes later. He said "That was like dropping a cow leg into a den of staving lions. We devoured those ribs." So I guess he/they liked them. I loved the texture, they had a great bark on them, not much pull back. I think I've found a new way to do my ribs from now on. Oh, and I liked the Smokin' Guns rubs better. My son and my friend both liked the Gates better. It was too sweet for me. Thanks for looking.
