    Well, got my MES40 seasoned up yesterday, so it was off to Costco this morning. Between all the meat, cheese, nuts, and other stuff that I actually needed I spent close to $500!!! Well, and I did get a Vacuum Saver and a bunch of packing material, so that wasn't all food. Going to be well fed though!! Anyway, I prepped 3 racks of baby backs and just stuck them into the MES with the AMNS full of Hickory. Rubbed w/ Arthur Bryant's Rib Rub and yellow mustard. In @ 225 using 2-2-1. More pics to follow when they're done.

    Not sure, they look fine on mine. This is the first time I've used Picasa to host images though, so I really don't know. They were sized to 800 pixels high x 479 wide. Should look ok.

    I can't wait to see how these compare to the ones I did just like this on my ECB.

    Here's the ribs finished...

    After the first two hours, ready to be wrapped...



    I have to say, they came out way better taste wise than on the ECB. But, I was disappointed that I didn't get the same amount of bark on these as I did on the wood fired smoker.

    You might try 3-1-1 to get a little more bark. I don't know about the rub you used but I think there needs to be a good amount of sugar in it to create some of the bark. I'm sure you will get more answers on this before long. I didn't have any trouble seeing the Q-view. It was all right in your post.

    I could think of no better way to spend a little bit of my bonus [​IMG]
  15. not just you.  can't even tewll what they are.

  16. pintobean

    Yes, I think you are correct. I just used some store bought stuff this time, but last time when I got the good bark I used this:

    1/4 cup turbinado sugar

    1/4 cup salt free chili powder

    2 teaspoons of ground black pepper

    2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper 

    1 teaspoon of ground white pepper

    I don't think there was much, if any, sugar in the stuff I used this time. Next time I'll have to be a little less lazy!! Or just add some sugar to the store bought stuff!

    Yeah, last time I use Picasa for a while. I started a new thread in Cheese this morning and went back to photobucket.

    Yeah, I try to tell my wife the same thing. This year, there was plenty of bonus to go around, which I'm extremely grateful for in this economy.
