    I like to keep things simple. Started with a rack of spare ribs. Left the membrane ON. Cut the spare rib in half. SPOG. That’s it. Spritzed with a mixer of apple cider vinegar and apple juice ever hour. Last 1.5 hr. Mopped with a store bought bbq sauce with a candied jalapeños syrup added. Smoked using cherry and post oak chunks on the WSM. Smoked for 6 hours at 240-250 degrees. Pulled at IT 195. Turned out real good. Great flavor. Found a new way to smoke my ribs!

    Nice cook. The rib looks like one big smoke ring.

    Awesome! There is a magic thing that happens when smoked in the heat column! Cherry is my fav wood to smoke with!

    PS since you are all over the this new style of cooking......I could ship you out a X-Fire to use......you just need to pay for the shipping.....lol

    Edit...and have a supply of those ribs for the delivery driver...

    These look really nice. I’d be interested to hear more about the rack you built.

    Can you still fit the top lid on over the rack? Do you have to be careful of letting things cook too much in case something gets tender and drops off a hook into the fire?

    I often use my WSM to cook direct over the coals from top rack when I do a big mess of jerk chicken, I find the texture and colour get just right when you have a cool fire and just let it sit for an hour or 3 up high like that and the smell is unreal when you get drips of fat/seasonings over the coals/wood.

    Thanks bud! Appreciate it!
    Thank you sir!
    Thank you! Appreciate it!
    Cherry is one of my favorites too. And deal. I would love to try out the X-Fire!
    Thank you! And they were just right!
    Thank you! The color on there’s ribs were amazing!
    Thank you sir! It was an easy build! You An do it!
    Thank you Al! Appreciate the kind words!
    Thanks Richie, my best mod yet for the WSM!
    Thanks! Yeap, I can close the top lid. And yes, if you let the ribs get too tender they will fall off and land in a hot bed of coals! I guess you could use the lower rack to ketch the ribs if they fall. However, my IT temp was 195ish. So, just right!
