Took a few weeks off ribs, needed to get back in the swing with a competition looming a couple weeks out. Worked on 3 different methods, (1) basic mustard slather and my rub, one a top secret variation, and (1) instead of using a mustard slather I used a sweet thai chili sauce, 5 spice, and rub.

Basic prep of this 3 pack from RD, rinsed with cold water, then rinsed in white vinegar. membrane removed, and rubbed.



thai slather:



all ready:




bottom rack of the WSM:



WSM top rack:




flipped and all together:



got about 1.5 hours left, should be a good supper.

crashed out last night, ribs were really good, especially the rack made with the sweet thai chili sauce as the slather vs the mustard. Other 2 were good as well. Pictures dowloading now.

The slab with the sweet chili oil slather and 5 spice rub were the favorite. Simple, but just great. All were good. Tender, smokey, and a nice tug.

done:

I've been using 5 spice powder in a couple of different rubs. The one I use has cinnamon, fennel, cloves, star anise and white pepper. What are the ingredients in your formulation?

this was the straight up 5 spice mix from Restaurant depot, no adders. I topped it off with some basic rub.

Unfortunately RD doesn't have any locations in Maine. The reason I ask is because I have seen 5 Spice Powder with 7 ingredients listed on the label
.
