    Well normally i am over in the smoker building section writing about the smoker project i am working on. But today i am taking a break from that and doing up some baby backs and posting pics for anyone that isnt going to be as lucky as me today. I have done ribs a couple of other times, and the first time turned out pretty well but might have just been a little over done. Second try was about the same except they were just a little under done and a little tougher. I believe today will finally be it. I am smoking on a modified ECB, using Royal Oak charcoal and a mix of apple and hickory chips.I put my dry rub on lastnight and had it sitting in the fridge up until 30 min ago. I will continue updates through out the day. ENJOY!!!

    Looks like you have a good start. I personally like a heavy rub down on all my meat. Enough those ribs.

    Sorry for the delay on this but the neighbor came over and we had a few adult beverages for a while. Anyway the ribs have been on for a little over 2 hours. They look so delicious i want to eat them now. Here is a pic i took about 45 minutes ago when i was spraying them down a bit. I am having some issues with some temp spikes but nothing too major. This is the first time i have used lump charcoal so it is taking a little getting used to.

    And here is the latest look at the ribs taken just a few minutes ago when i gave the slabs their hourly shower. You know, i think the first person that decided to drink beer wile smoking meat should be awarded the nobel peace prize or something like that.

    Well i think we are getting awefully close. The ribs have been on for about 4 hours and 15 minutes. I just gave them another shower and boy are they looking good.Let me know what you think. Good or bad. I want to know that these ribs are as good as they can be with the technique i am using.

    Alright, now we are in sight of the finish line. I just pasted on my own BBQ sauce and am planning on leaving the ribs on for 30 more minutes to let that settle down just right. I can almost taste these things and they are already delicios. ENJOY!!!

  10. Save me a spot a the table, I am on my way!!.[​IMG]

    Well, i dont use sayings to often but i would say this pig is cooked.Total time: 5 hours and 35 minutes. And just in time if i might add. Storm is blowing in and i had to bring the smoker in the garage for the last 30 min. Good thing the wife isnt here. These things are amazing. I would save a spot at the table for any one of you fellas. I wish these pics would show the true story but it just is not capturing what i am seeing. I hope you enjoy!!!

    I'd say there is nothing wrong with your process.. write down exactly what you did and repeat it next time[​IMG]

    Great technique, great job keeping yourself basted with beverages as well as the ribs. They truly look wonderful and if I were anywhere near you, I'd be there in a heartbeat!!

    Good job!
