So I'm posting this just to vent mostly. My brother and I decided to have a little rib competition Sunday in honor of Labor Day and also to celebrate his youngest's birthday. So he purchased 14 racks of baby backs and had me come over and pick up half. We each marinated or rubbed the night before and then were going to smoke them on my stick burner the next day. Well I took great pain in prepping the racks, rubbing, etc. and got ready for the big day. We put them on at 9am and proceeded to smoke for about 2.5 hours and then foiled. When foiling each pack I even went back and added some addtitional rub, a touch of brown sugar, and a light coat of honey before I wrapped them up. I just knew I was going to win the sweet crowd. Well 2 hours later we opened the packs and they looked magnificent!! So good at this point I contemplated not even adding a stich of sauce. Well my brother's tasted ok, but more like good pulled pork, not well rubbed ribs. After we pulled from the foil I then started to layer on some really good sauce, building it up a little at a time. And then applied just a touch more before cutting them up. My brother on the other hand just let his sit for about 15 minutes, cut them up, and then hand dunked each one in some Cattlemen's that he had jazzed up a bit. Well to look at them mine were prisitine and his just had sauce running off. But of course I took a beating because turns out all of the family just wanted to lick up that stuff. Geez! Didn't they have a discriminate pallet to taste all that delicious rub I had worked on and applied??? Oh well I guess next year I'll just pull out some junky old sauce and reclaim my diginity. Ha ha!! Thanks for a great group!
