well guys after the great success I had with then Boston Butt, I'm trying my hand at ribs. all together I think there's about 13# or better.  The rub I'm using is Butt Rub left over from a few weeks back.  Being a chainsaw enthusiast, finding wood is not an issue. I got really lucky as my buddy (who will be enjoying these ribs) got  me a bunch of Hickory. I de-barked it, split it very small and then used my miter saw to cut it into chunks. More pics to follow....

wrapped individually, then wrapped all 4 together...... the smell is killing me, damn I'm getting hungry. Anybody ever sauce the ribs when they foil them?

well, they were good, very good. I think I still prefer pulled pork but the ribs had plenty of flavor. I would have liked them to be a little more tender, but truth be told, it had no time to rest befoer being devoured....

Nik/Fatguy once again you out did yourself, they were awesome!! I think the pork but was better, but when you have to chose one or the other life is good.

Here's a pic or Q-view of the master chef himself...

Once again thanks Nik!!
