Hey guys. So after I posted my first smoking experience, and after all the positive comments, I decided I was gonna make another brisket for dinner today, even though I said only for special occasions. I wanted to start a little earlier than last time so I started at 5 but when I went to open the bag, it smelled really bad so I just went back to sleep and when I woke up, went to Costco to return the brisket. I left with pork spare ribs.

I Smoked at 275f with pecan and hickory.
I used the same rub as shown in one of Franklins videos on YouTube. 2:1 Pepper & salt, paprika, gran. garlic, gran. onion, and chili powder.

On they go.

2 hours in. Sauced up with a mixture of 1/2 BBQ sauce and 1/2 water. I then let the sauce set for 15-20 min, then poured some of the BBQ/water mixture onto some heavy duty aluminum foil, wrap the ribs and let it go for another 2 hours, or until tender.

After a 30 min rest
