I know, it’s Thursday but my Phone has been jacked up and i had to send all the pics to my computer. Sooo......

     Sunday was my second ever stick burn in the Open Range. I had a few slabs of beef ribs so I figured what the hey, lets do it! My wife had wanted to whitewash the bricks on our back porch so I was already going to be next to the smoker anyway and this could be my reward. I put just enough briquettes to cover the bottom of the chimney(10-15) lit it up and went inside to pull the membrane. Once they were lit, I dumped them in the center of the fire box and stuck a couple small oak splits on top. 

     Finished rubbing the ribs with S&P, through on another small split and brought the smoker up to temp. Once I was up to 275, I put the ribs on.



Of course, lunch had to be made so put the grill on the firebox and grilled some hot dogs.


Bout 3.5 hours in and I’m ready to wrap. Nothing in the foil,j ust wrapped up tight in a double layer of HD foil and back on the rack.


Once the ribs were foiled, I scooped the coals to the center and dumped a chimney of unlit coals on either side with a couple on top. It worked perfectly and burned @250 for the next 2.5 hours.

Verdict? Phenomenal!!! Super tender and juicy with an incredible smoky flavor. I can’t even describe the difference. The smoke ring seemed to go all the way through but it was nowhere near over smoked. I’m sold on the stick burning and I can’t wait to try spares and brisket.



Plated and devoured with some cheesy broccoli and pringles.

Hope Y’all have a great weekend

Thanks Al, I'm a big fan of just about anything with cheese. Think I'll make some Mac and cheese today as well.

Hey thanks Joe! And thank you for the points!! Beef ribs are my favorite as the richness of pork can sometimes get to me. I don't tend to do them very often since it's hard to find slabs with any meat on them. 1-2 bites per bone is just not with the effort. However, I've had good luck lately with a new brand at my Walmart that's marketed for bbq.
