Pitched a doubleheader today.....

Having dinner a couple of months ago with my dad, I mentioned that I smoked ribs.  He said, "I love ribs".  Dead shock....I mean, I lived with the guy for, basically, 21 years and I never knew that.  Wow, kick in the head time.  Anyway I filed that away and told myself "next time I make ribs, I gotta invite Dad."  Wednesday night, while i was out of town, I decided I wanted ribs this weekend, so I asked my bride to give him a call and invite him for dinner Saturday night.  Well... we had to invite his lady friend, and then her son and his wife who were staying with her...so one rack of ribs turned into two (hence the doubleheader).  I got up at 6:00 and opened them up:

Deflapped and removed the membrane of the first and then the second:

There are two there, one on top of the other.  Then, rub and wrap:

and into the fridge until noon.  Started the GOSM (propane) at 11:45 aimed at 225 and put the ribs in on separate shelves, using hickory.

3 hours under smoke (adding new wood at 1 1/2 hours) and then it was time to foil. Here's what they looked like before the foil:

I kept them in foil for 1 1/2 hours, and unwrapped them.  Looking good!:

Put them back in for another 1 1/2 hours under smoke to tighten up.  They finished like this:

and.... THE MONEY SHOT:

I was the only one who chose to use sauce... But then again I always do.  served with new potato salad and cole slaw.  Everyone voted it a success!

Looks great. I'm glad they all like them. Next time I bet you will have to do more ribs.

Nice looking ribs. How you had left overs is mind boggling! Like the others, it would take at least 3 racks considering I would polish of 1 and maybe a half of another just myself.

Great job there retread. Nothing like a family get together and serving up some good food. I'm sure you will be in demand for ribs all the time now.
