Started my fire with some Kingsford Blue Bag I had let over, got my coals going good and added about 3 pieces of hickory. I got this lump at our local grocery store. They did have a brand which I can't remember the name that was real good. I am thinking it may be the same stuff just packaged under a different label. We are fixing to find out. Hickory had burned down so I am adding the lump.

A picture of the bag

Getting ribs ready, pulled off membrane cleaned them up a little, left some stuff I normally trim but the grandson's like the little edges, kind of like burnt ends on ribs. Rubbed down with a little yellow mustard and covered in my rub. (My rub is pretty much like everybody else's) I have a couple of different recipes, not sure which this on was. I use quite a bit goes on just about I cook on the Grill.

I do em that way sometimes myself.  Doing the 3-2-1 method today kind of Johnny Trigg style. When I wrap I do about the thing he does and at the end I have a finishing sauce I use. Pretty much the same ingredients with a few added and kicked up a notch. That's the way my Grandson's like'em .

Review on the Brookshire's Brand Lump Charcoal I used,   Not bad burns good avg. amt. of ash too many small pieces and jus a few larger ones. I will send Brookshire's an email about their product and see how they respond.
