    Nothing fancy a couple racks of spare ribs. Pulled the membrane and trimmed the fat. Salt pepper garlic on one. Store bought savory spice pearl street plank rub on the other.

    Set the Traeger to 225 with cherry pellets. Should be done in 5-6 hours. No foiling no mopping.

    I did a set-it-and-forget-it smoke today, too. But it was chicken leg quarters and only took an hour and a half. I watched football.

    Well I just looked at the smoker. Seems to be doing it's job I guess. Temp readout says 225, there's smoke coming out the stack and the fan is running.

    The only way to get less excited as you sound like you are is to go to sleep.

    Instead of watching your smoker watch some football...

    What kind of pellets you using?

    Edit: I see cherry pellets! I don't look as dumb as I am...

    Yeah real easy to be a college football fan with the ducks! I'm a huge college fan when my rainbows are doing well... We didn't win a single game last year!

    Ha, I have endured some pretty bad Duck football over the years!

    Okay got the sauce simmering, changed it a bit. Used raw sugar, and cholula instead if Tabasco. Doubled the hot sauce.

    Pretty tasty on a potato chip!



    Probably will use apple cider vinegar next time.

    My oldest requested sauced ribs. So I broke the norm and sauces both. The salt pepper garlic ribs got the mustard. The other got store bought Sweet Baby Rays Honey BBQ sauce.
