So during my weekend smoke-fest there had to be ribs or there will be hell to pay from my son


I mad three racks. The first rack I had cinnamon/chipotle rub & finished with sauce & honey for the last hour. These were for the boy. Second rack was Famous Dave's rib rub. First time trying it & I really love it, different flavor ever time? I also put on a second coat after the rest but before the smoker. Wife said it was too spicy
   Third rack was one coat of Dave's the a good coating of turbinado while coming up to room temp. It took a little while to melt in, but wow that really kept that rack moist. I also couldn't get all the membrane off that third rack? Tried for along time & started making the rack look very hacked up so I left alot on. it still came out OK? All in all not my best? Didn't get much pull back AT ALL. More tough & tug then I wanted, but I'll get that smoker dialed yet!!!





The ones on the left are the extra sugar ribs. No pull back even after the foil??



Almost forgot i also tried some butter on the sugared rack, not for me

Looks good to me. Some people like pull back and some people hate pull back. I guess  its a personal preference thing.

Great looking ribs Terry. I had planned on doing a rib smoke this past weekend but Ma put the kabosh on that real quick like. I've been fighting a major head cold for the last week and a half and she didn't want me hanging around outside and getting worse-I mean how worse can I get? It was 60° weather for Pete's sake!!

Thanks guys! They were juicy. Not a tender as I usually like, but still juicy!

Nice looking ribs..will have to try some of that raw sugar. My last rack wasn't my best effort either. A little tough to get off the bone with a straight 3-2-1. Gonna wait till the weather warms up a little and do another run.

Terry, those ribs look awful good to me, if they taste half as good as they look you got some first class ribs!  Keep up the good work!

Your SMF Friend,

Man those look good! I haven't had my smoker lit for almost 2 months now!
 I am thinking I will give it a try at the end of next week, me legs are healing up well and I can actually move around and walk with almost no discomfort, so getting some ribs on the WSM is very, very high on the list!

I'm real glad to hear that Johnny, but be real careful---Don't cause it to flare up, by jumping the gun!

All 3 look very good! Tell me more about the Turbinado.... what is it?

It's raw sugar. You can get it at Wally World. It comes in a box about the size of a big box of Morton's Kosher salt. It has the same kind of spout on the side of the box as the salt box does.
