Spare Rib Saturday

    Had a couple racks of spare ribs that I bought on a sale a while back for $1.49/lb. Have a home project I'll be working on this afternoon so I figured why not get something on early this morning and have it for a mid afternoon meal. Trimmed the ends and the flap, but left the tips on the rack at the recommendation of a co-worker. Light layer of mustard and rub and into the fridge last night. Will be getting the smoker going in an hour or 2 and then we will let the low and slow ride begin.

    The guy helping me wants to do a sweet glaze, so he will likely get his wish on one rack if he so chooses.

    Also stopping at the store soon to see if they have anything on sale that will be quick to throw on to accompany Porky and co.

    Hope it works out and you get that honey do finished. Lets see some photos. What are you using for a sweet glaze?

    Got busy with the house project. They turned out much better than my previous efforts, although I still struggle with where the tips end and the rib begins. Ended up staying on the smoker for about 6.5 hours at 235-240 with a little bump to 280 when I added some sauce. Unfortunately due to the house project all I did was my normal rub and some sauce at the end, didn't get to try the brown sugar/honey glaze that was planned. I still don't even know the recipe for the glaze as it wasn't my idea.

    Anyhoo, onto the photos. After their rub and before they got on the grill. Extra bits in the corner.
    We are off and running...
    Glazed with sauce and almost ready...
    Didn't get quite the pull back, but the meat was nearly FOTB with just enough bite.

    On the board ready to cut.
    The spoils of war....
    The smoke ring left a little to be desired, but overall I was happy I had the spare ribs versus the baby backs. After by first attempt with spare ribs I was ready to walk away..
    Bonus shot, threw some stuffed peppers on while the grill was hot for leftovers...
    Forgot to take the photo where I covered them with pepperjack cheese...

    Those look very good. I'd like to eat one! (Ribs or the peppers, they both look nice)

  14. Ribs look great. Congrats on making the carousel!
  15. Looks great! I need to try out the smoked stuffed peppers! Did you fill with 100% sausage or did you have some rice in the mix too?

    These were actually 85/15 beef with seasoning. They ended up dry, so I would either go with sausage or mix in some fat the next time I make them.
