Got the week off so I decided to make some pork ribs!

I hadn't smoked any food in a while so I decided to fire up the smoker. I am experimenting with a turkey breast on the lower rack, I don't expect that to turn out great, but threw on some Ribs for a nice backup plan. This is only the 3rd time that I'll be making spare ribs so hopefully they turn out decent. So far they looked good going on this morning despite it being FREEZING out.

Update: adding the final pics. the que turned out fantastic, including the turkey breast. Thanks to everyone on this forum who's helped me perfect ribs and learn to do the Turkey yesterday. I will say the one pic of the ribs makes it look a little dry, but once I let them sit in foil for 25 min before cutting they didnt seem to have an issue.

Thanks. I actually haven't settled on any yet. depending how the food turns out some of it is going into the freezer for later, but I tend to stick to coleslaw and baked beans. One of these times I need to step it up and learn to make some home-made mac n cheese.

Look up Gary S bake beans you can cook in smoker while doing the ribs. My family favorite when I'm smoking anything.

Thanks! I was ecstatic the bird turned out. I've never tried that and usually expect attempt one to be edible but bad overall haha.

Nice looking ribs there with a good looking piece of turkey..

Did the turkey breast turn out juicy?
Thanks. The turkey wasn't as juicy as I'd have preferred but I was having difficulty getting it to the final temp. But its not too dry.
