Howdy Folks,

Mrs. Meowey was rummaging around in the freezer yesterday and pulled out a rack of baby backs frozen in a foodsaver bag. She licked her lips and wondered if I minded firing up the smoker one more time this weekend. She didn't need to ask twice.

I speed thawed them in running cold water (still in the foodsaver bag - gotta love foodsaver), rubbed them and let them sit overnignt in the fridge.

This morning we are having a heat wave - the ambient temp is 14F, as compared to 12F yesterday when I smoked a chuck roast to do Dutch's enchiladas. ( ) Smoking with hickory and the GOSM settled in at about 230F. You take whatever the smoker gives you on a particular day. BTW - It's still snowing here.

Ribs and fatty ready for the smoker


Will post more pics later.

Take care, have fun, and do good!


Don't know! Either way you are right - good eats. They will probably be done about halfway through the NASCAR race. NASCAR and BBQ - who would have thought it!

Take care, have fun, and do good!


Have a 3 pack of cryovac ribs in the freezer now for three to get moving on them.....bought at a good price but wondering if they have overstayed their welcome

How long was your rack in the freezer?

14* man it's time for wearing shorts

The date I wrote on the bag was October 9, 2006. Probably long enough, but they did not have any freezer burn. (Gotta love foodsaver!)

Take care, have fun, and do good!


Ribs are ready for foil. The meat has pulled back from the end of the bone. About 2.5 hours.


More later.

Take care, have fun, and do good!


Wow Meowey, your just a smoking fool this weekend......with all that smoking, you should at least be melting some of that

Looks great!!!!
My back "porch" is a concrete slab with a metal roof over top. I'll post a pic with the final rib pic.

Take care, Have fun, and do good!


First of all - for Up in Smoke - a picture of the "smoking porch" - smoker in background. The house, snow bank, and cedar tree in far background make a good windbreak. (Note the snowblower in the foreground. It had already been used today and there is more snow) That's not smoke on the right side, it's snow blowing off the roof.


Finished Ribs


Plated with Spanish Rice


Plate saved for Up in Smoke!!


LOL! You folks are great!!

The sad thing is that it will be next weekend before I can fire up again.

BTW - It finally stopped snowing!!

Take care, have fun, and do good!


meowey, you've had a hell of a weekend.........congrats on all the great lookin grub!!

Illini, im sure those ribs will be no good, so i've decided to head on over and grab those so as to save on your garbage bill!!!
OOOOOOOOOOO, those look good. I'd even settle for the bones. Dogs & I could lay in yard chew'n on them for hours since it's 71* here now.

Nice, Very nice! that's too funny!!!

Looks wonderfull Meowey, would that be a enchilada I eye spy on your plate??? Was gonna make them today but got into a lazy mode ...oh well, next weekend.

You all in that part of the country have really taken a wallop this had more snow there then we have had in Michigan, and that's unusual. Glad to see it hasn't hindered your smoking.

That cheese covered mound is the Spanish Rice. The smaller mound stuck to the spoon and then fell onto the plate. LOL

Take care, have fun, and do good!


I don't have bunnies but I do have Taz slippers.


Take care, have fun, and do good!
