    I have these pics over in "roll call" also since I just joined SMF. Thought I would post some Q-view pics in this forum also since the spare ribs turned out awesome. Used the 3-2-1 w/apple smoke. Love the MES40...! Thanks for looking...

    In the smoke house they went...


    Ready for the foil and apple juice...


    All done...


    Time to eat...

    I was really anxious to use my new smoker so there wasn't  a whole lot of planning involved. Wasn't sure what kind of rub to use, so when I was walking through BJ's I just grabbed a container of Emeril's Original Essence and some brown sugar for the rub with yellow mustard. During the last hour in the smoker I basted them twice with Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce.

    Thanks Chef Willie! (and everyone else that posted). I was very happy with the quality of the finished ribs. I gave myself a B+ [​IMG]Good thing I didn't have to tie my shoes after I got done eating.... that was a big dinner.

    In case someone is wondering about the color of the liquid in the water pan..... I used apple juice, but, I had some rub left over and since I was putting my hands in the rub, I didn't want to save it. Rather than tossing it I put it in with the juice. If, I'm not able to steelhead fish this coming Sunday, I'll be babysitting the MES again. I'm thinking 3 more racks and 2 butts. Meanwhile I'll be brainstorming ideas for my first fattie and soaking in some of the wealth of knowledge on SMF.
