    I am used to grill my ribs (here in Belgium it is always grilling)

    until I saw smoked ribs, that fell of the bone
    that I wants to try once, I have examined the 3-2-1 method
    I bought myself a rib rack from weber
    I not now which ribs it are, but it are the only cuts ribs that we know here[​IMG]
    this afternoon I have ventured it, friends invited (also open-minded)
    For the rub i used

    3 Part paprika
    2 Part brown sugar
    1 part provencaalse herbs
    1 part cayenne pepper
    1 part salt
    1 part Chile flakekes
    1 part garlic powder
    1 part cumin
    1 part Ground coriander

    blended all spices together


    the ribs rubbed and wrapped

    ribs on the grill

    weber rack were not large enough,thus I use the rack from the microwave also

    oak that I used to smoke

    the ribs just before packing

    the ribs wrapped

    extracted and returned to the grid

    at the table

    I have used more 2.5 / 1.5 / 0.5 used
    they fell apart , for us is an experience never to forget
    and sure to make again , Our friends also like it
    I did not moped the last hour, I will try next time (someone a mop recipe [​IMG])
    for us it was a very great experience[​IMG]

    Congrats on a successful rib smoke, you really had the smoker loaded up, great idea using the tray from the microwave.
    Lots of folks on here simply spritz their ribs instead of mopping, a popular basic spritz is just apple juice.
    Glad all worked out for you and that everyone enjoyed themselves.
  3. Looking tastey. Did you enjoy them with some of that awsome Belgian beer?[​IMG]

    Those are definatly spares just trimmed to be St. Louis cut. I like your uses of the mirco rack and the ribs rack too. Now you know why we are always want a bigger smoker. Or in my case have 3 smokers now.[​IMG]are surely deserved for the ribs and after a quick visit to Germany it's not easy to find cuts of meat like we have here in the states.

    I'm going with you.... I'd have to say nicely trimmed st. louis style. Great idea with the inverted rack to fit more racks.

    I also loved the fact you used parts in your rub blend. So much easier to duplicate in any size. The rub looked good.

    I liked the idea of the 3-2-1 method before I actually used it. 2 hours over heat in wrapped foil and the meat is going to fall off. I've done 3-1-2 with good results.

    Thanks for sharing the qview, great looking stuff!
