Baby Back Ribs (MMmmmmm)

This is from last Summer, but it seems I never posted it:

I thought it was time to get rid of the other two Baby Backs in my freezer.
These were two of the four I got when I finally found some for under $5 per pound.
Got these for $3.99.

So, Here we go:
Day #1 (4 PM):
Remove Membranes, Rinse & Dry.
Coat with Yellow Mustard & top with Pork Rub.
Wrap in plastic wrap, and into fridge for the night.

Day #2 (Smoking)
11:00 AM---------------------Fill two rows of AMNPS, with 80% Hickory/20% Apple pellets, and light one end.
11:30 AM---------------------Pre-heat MES 40 to 220˚.
12 Noon----------------------Put Ribs on rack in #2 position.
3:00 PM----------------------Put in foil pan, coat with foil mixture (see below), cover tightly with foil, and put back in smoker.
4:15 PM----------------------Open foil up.
4:45 PM----------------------Cover & remove.

Foil Mix:
Ken's Honey-Teriyaki Marinade-------------------------1 ounce
JD Old #7 BBQ Sauce------------------------------------3 ounces
Apple Juice------------------------------------------------4 ounces
Melted Butter---------------------------------------------2 TBS

Heat mixture in Nukulator, and stir real well before using.

These tasted Awesome!!!


Coated with Yellow Mustard & Rub:

Temp---49˚----Winds 10 to 15 MPH----Let's get started

Here is my set-up in my MES 40.
Note that my ET 732 probe hangs in a position even with the MES sensor (clean circle on back wall of smoker--right side).
That is how I keep the heat in my smoker even from left to right.
If the left side gets hotter or colder than the right side, I adjust that plate you see above the water pan, on the right:

No need to open the door to peek:

Foiled after 3 hours & back in:

Separate burning pellets to save the unburned----used less than one row in 3 hours:

Freshly opened foil:

MMMMMMmmmmmm--------Big Tall Stack of Goodies!!!

Bear's first helping---Back for more Ribs shortly!!!

Outstanding job there, GI. Thanks for reminding me I have a rack of BB's in the deep freeze I should do. Think I'll head out & pull them to slowly defrost...Willie

Wow Bear! That looks great, and soft, and even "balanced" with veggies, potatoes and such! You seem to always make a fabulous dinner! So fun to see! Cheers! - Leah
