Smoking Fanatic

I've been busy recently and haven't had a chance to smoke anything (except some chicken thighs which I pulled and used mustard sauce to make perfect. awesome). I stopped by the butcher shop while I was out today because I couldn't resist my smoker any longer! I've rubbed my ribs down and will use 3-2-1 as these are spares which I find to be generally less tender than baby backs. I trimmed them, so have some skirt meat to keep me smiling while I'm waiting.

I'm also making some baked beans. I think they're similar to Dutch's, but I'm going to add some brown sugar, a cut up apple and a half fatty that I smoked with the chicken. These will cook below the ribs which I think is in accordance with Dutch's method.

Anyhow, I was excited to get a good smoke going and wanted to put something up. I'm going to use pecan tomorrow I think. I find it similar to hickory, if not a bit smaller, and it's good.

If I can figure out how to post pictures since I've already exceeded my 500K limit, I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
Thanks meowey. I have been using snapfish, but when I try to use code in the pages, I don't get the image, rather the code prints on the screen. I tried last in the ABT thread and could never succeed. I guess I'm just not smart enough. :-(

The ribs have been on for about 1.5 hrs now and things are going well. The rain is cooling me down a bit, but I'm getting good smoke still. It should be a good smoke!
I smoked some baby backs last night. I found ribs on sale for buy 1 get 2 free. I got six slabs for $20. Ribs with skillet fried corn, baked rice and garlic bread. Yumm Yumm.

Use the UBB code to link to the pics. Just put your link to the pics
for pics

It should work. That's how I usually do it. I have an old web site that I really don't update anymore. I just use it for storage space.

Like this for link:

Maybe it's snapfish that's the problem. I'll try another hosting site. I used theUBB code in the other page, but no luck.

BTW, I wish I could find a deal on ribs like that! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
