My sister hasn't ever had anything from my smoker because I started smoking meat after her last visit.  Anyway she arrived from Wisconsin last night for a couple of days visit before going on to my Dad's for Christmas.  (We'll be going on to our daughter's )  Anyway I decided I would make some ribs for tonight.  Got 'em out of the freezer Saturday so that they'd be thawed this morning.

Here are the ingredients for the rub:  Flaked Kosher salt, Hot Hungarian Pepper, Brown Sugar, Garlic Powder and Dry Mustard.



Here are the ribs, as purchased:



Rubbed and wrapped and ready to rest:



I just put them in the GOSM Big Block.  I will smoke with hickory chunks between 220-230 (using my new Maverick E732!) by the 3-2-1 method.  I'll let you know how it comes out.

Nope, they're not baby backs.  They were a full rack of spare ribs which I cut down to St Louis style.

Dougmays, I apologize for the confusion.  I really should have said Hungarian Hot Paprika, rather than Hungarian Hot Pepper.

Here we go -- here's how they came out:



and the smoke ring: (!!!!)



And the fans (bride on the left and sister on the right):



They called it a success, and so do I.

By the way, my sister knew I was into smoking, although she didn't know I had ribs planned for tonight.  She shared a 2 page article on Barbecue, titled "Fire in the hole" which she found in the most recent issue of "The Economist" while we were waiting on the ribs.  Seemed to be a reasonable discussion, including the various "wars" we know about,  pork vs beef, sauce vs no sauce, type of sauce (if you choose it) etc.  A really reasonable discussion, it just seem weird that it was in "The Economist"
