We got a bit of a break in the weather the last few days.  Its actually been above freezing here several days in a row, even though it was a bit rainy and gray today, I had a rack of spares planned...and I wasn't gonna let a little rain change my plans.  Fortunately I have a covered porch where I can get my smoker out of the wind and rain.

I trimmed this rack up St. Louis style last night, and dusted it with some Big Poppa's Sweet Money Rub...then into the fridge overnight.  As the smoker was coming up to temp, I gave it another light dusting of rub, and spritzed with a little Apple Juice.


Into the Rec Tec.  Smoking @ 240*...On the left are the rib tips and trimmings, which I'll probably save for another recipe and another day.  


2 1/2 hours later...ready to remove from the smoker and foil...


Just before foiling...


Today I'm foiling with brown sugar, squeeze Parkay, and honey.


Foiled and back in the smoker...bumped the smoker temp up to 260*.


About 2 hours later, removed the foil and put them back in the smoker for about 20 minutes...just to tighten them up a little (forgot to snap a pic of that step 
Oops.gif
)

This shot is just before slicing up the slab...total cook time, about 5 hours.


Plated...with some baked beans and spuds.


A little closer look...


Thanks for looking...enjoy!

Thanks Justin!  I'm not gonna lie...it was some good eatin'!  

I'd gladly send your plate via next day air, but the overnight shipping rates are killing me...maybe I could send it Pony Express?

Hmmm...I have been reading your blog and watching your video...You are a pretty handy guy to have around the house...
The only downside, She Who Must Be Obeyed would get together with Mrs. Red, We wouldn't stand a chance.
 
Red, thanks for posting this and giving rookies like me a great example to follow! I love that plate shot, but to be honest this bean-fiend would have to have a big ol' spoonful of them before any ribs!!! Yum!!!!

They look great. Nice job!

Thank guys! I can't take credit for the beans...they're Mrs. Red's creation. She'll appreciate the compliment.
