Black Friday, football ribs.

I started the smoker set at 220, came in and Salt/Crackled Black Pepper/Tony's to the spare Ribs. Let the box heat for 30 mins then remembered I was going to use mesquite chips anyway. Doh!

I tried something different I had read somewhere for getting ribs in a small smoker. I circled it up and used a metal Skewer. Sort of looked like a crown rib. Worked great and I will probably eat more ribs now that I know it works. I just hate cutting a SMALL rack in half.

I used 3 2 1 method. Preferring the 2 & 1 in the oven since the ball game was on and they needed my coaching help. Sorry very few pictures because of it too.


I foiled with squeeze butter, Short Sugar's world famous NC tomato BBQ sauce, apple vinegar.


These are some happy ribs, I know they made me that way. BTW I only did 30 mins of the last hour, I just couldn't take it any more. And they were perfect! Nice pull, tender but attached.


I don't know what pig this plate belonged to, but they should be ashamed of their little piggy selves! Ribs, Smoked Mac & Cheese (that's the ones under the panko crumbs), Mom's smoked "Boy Scout" beans (she did her's in a roaster for 18 to 24 hours), and some most excellent sweet NC cole-slaw.  Some one was really a little piglet, weren't they?


Sorry 'bout the lack of Q-View, sorry bought the quality of the photos, and I apologize for whomever was the little piglet that ate this whole plate!

And that's it for Black Friday.

I think I would rather come to your house any day instead of shopping, Heck it wouldn't even need to be Friday a Tuesday would work for me.
It looks great, except for the beans not a bean guy,

Thank you sir, but you should try the beans first, you have not had anything like 'em I assure you. Mom's secret recipe for a reason. Every BBQ or party they always asked for "Boy Scout" beans. I think she normally made 4 or 5 gallons, and we never brought any home. Of course we hated them back then....LOL

 Thank you, well of course we had pork today, sheeeeesh!

I have 4 or 5 little cayenne plants that have been growing by the back door for 3 or 4 years, never die off, and just keep making maybe a dozen a year or less.

The ribs are a little dark, its because I went old school and used Mesquite today, (Actually I planned to use hickory, grabbed the wrong bag of chips and was to lazy to change).

Should have been here, this apricot is not quite smooth yet but.............. I wish it would cool off some in here...LOL

I can't do Jalapenos, something about them just make me physically ill. Its the taste not the heat and it stays with me for days... Nope, I don't do Jalapenos.

Nope nope nope....Not even those atomic buffalo do-hickies. Just means more for everyone else and I don't sit in the little smokers room and miss the whole party.

I didn't know that Louisiana was the American home of great ribs. Those look great. I am shocked that you didn't invite your Canadian friend but I will live vicariously through the pictures.

I tried to put some in the mail..... seems there is some type of ban on Louisiana smoked spare ribs in the great northwest. Then I was going to send them cross country in a lunch box (like the St.Benard's keg), but the dang neighbors dog kept stopping he'd pick the lock and he'd eat the dang ribs! And who am I to argue with a 200lb Rottweiler. But I tried, that's my story and I am sticking to it!

And who would question the word of a southern gentleman?
