    Hello Smokers!

    I smoked up some nice babyback ribs and thought I'd share some pics.

    I've been experimenting with rubs applied in layers as opposed to a mix. This slab was 3.75 Lbs and got a perfect layer of salt for 24 hours stored in a vacuum sealed bag, followed by garlic powder, brown sugar, fresh ground black pepper, dried chopped onion, chili powder and paprika.

    I smoked at 240-250 on apple and valley oak for about 3 hours......

    ..then wrapped it up tight for about 1.5 hours more at 260-270...

    When I unwrapped it, the meat was looking great so I cranked it up to 300-325 to firm the bark back up...maybe 15 minutes...then applied some homemade BBQ sauce and let it ride another 15 or so.....

    It glazed up perfectly. I finally gained spousal-BBQ endorsement even. What a great day!

    A little selection of sauces just adds to the glory! This came out as one of my best yet!

    Did you pull the meat off the ribs? Can't remember seeing anyone do that before. Point - first for me.

    Yeah, I ate a few stock from the rack, but I generally make BBQ sandwiches. For whatever reason I have been obsessed with sandwiches - since birth I guess.

    That was a damn good sandwich.
