I've learned from some of the fine folks here that smoking patients is definitely a virtue. Turns out it's easier than expected. Fired up the smoker, did a light trim of excess fat, loaded on the 50/50 salt & pepper and into the smoker on low for 2 hours. Afterwards bumped it up to 275º and ran some errands. Got back 5 hours later and added some more pellets. At 7 hours in the pull back had occurred and they probed tender all over. Waited another 15-20 minutes then pulled to rest open on counter while the IT dropped 5º followed by wrapping tight in foil and into a 165º oven for the next hour & half. Results: very tender, juicy and great flavor! So, very little fussing, let the smoker do it's thing and you'll be rewarded. Nice thing, there is only two of us so the remaining 2 ribs are vac'ed and in the freezer waiting to be used in chili. :emoji_wink:

Dude, chili, really?
Chili is for when you under or over cook something and need to save a disaster.
Unless of course you use hamburger..

They are my new favorite BBQ, I'm on the hunt for some thick cut plate ribs, which aren't easy to find around here.

Bingo that is perfection! I have become a cover and hold fan! It’s like the secret magic classified under the foil tent treatment!
Thanks Cortney!

Thanks Rich! Yeah, the logic escapes many new comers to smoking but keeping the lid shut is the right thing to do.

Maybe for some, but with only two of us we get a lot of great meals out of left overs with these and from smoking full packer briskets.
Nice work Matt. Great process and nice cut shot.
Thanks Eric!

Yes sir, leftovers into chili is one of our favorites!
Bullseye!! You nailed that cook, I'll bet those were might tasty. 👌
Oh they certainly were! Tenderness was spot on and the flavor 😋😋

Try to find a butcher, they can set you up. Thanks for checking in Dan!
Great rack of meaty bones Matt,:emoji_thumbsup::emoji_thumbsup:
I don't think there would be leftovers , as I would be back in later on and eat them cold right out of the fridge.... But that is how I roll :emoji_sunglasses:

David
Hey there David, they are definitely very good cold. With only two ribs left the amount is just right for a small batch a chili for two.
