Dear SMF Folks:
I have received a recipe from Jeff a couple times now for spare ribs cut up and rubbed before cooking. so i thought i would give that a whirl...

Here is what i did

I cut up the individual bones and rubbed them with Jeff's rub

after an hour of rub they have a nice color!

putting some hickory in the bottom of the WSM and getting it ready for charcoal...

Did cutting them up shorten the cook?
It did that pic of the ribs most of the way done was 2 hrs in. total it was 3:15 . i ran 225 for the first 2 hours then i ran about 300-325 for the last hour which is prob why i charred the rub. if i had 225 the whole way it prob would have been a good 4 hrs, i wish i had cut them a little more even because some came out FOTB and some bite through. but all tender!

Happy Smoking,

Boy howdy Aaron, when I saw ribs and you in the same post I was sure you were breaking in the new Lang. I never tried cutting a rack up like you did, they look wonderful, Like! RAY

So what do you think? pro's and con's of separating them first? I can see it cooking faster.

Nice job there Aaron. Good report on something new to you. I do riblets and they are small so it is a different way of learning verse doing a whole rack.
