We have great weather today right now it's 63°, so I put some BB on the GOSM, I made a sweeter rub today, my wife can't handle spicy foods, so I made a basic rub with, paprika, cbp, kosher salt, garlic powder, onion powder, a little bit of chili powder and cayenne, more brown sugar than I usually use, some granulated sugar, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and couple of packets of cherry Kool-Aid, I think I read that from Meat Hunter I do believe ( forgive me if I'm wrong ), it turned out to be pretty tasty, sweeter than usual, but with a little bite. Don't ask me how much of what, I didn't really measure.  

rubbed up and ready to go

 Atta boy! I hate measuring stuff out. I may do it to try someone's recipe so I get as close of a duplication, and then it's my own hand after that. The only thing I have found, other than cures, that needs to be exact is baking powder and salt ratios. Put to much baking powder in something and it will tast awfull no matter how big it is.
 
Looks like these will be done with no-foil, cause we're out of foil  
 I did some ribs awhile back and I took my inlaws to a old mining/ghost town for the day. The ribs stayed in the drum the whole time with no spritzing, foiling or anything else. I sauced them when we got back and pulled them a little later, they were good to go. Don't sweat the little things..

Ribs are done, and I really like the added flavor that the cherry kool-aid in the rub added, these taste awesome

Sometimes, the greatest tasting food is achieved by experimenting or even an accidental omission/addition. It's all good my friend.

 I'm getting better, but even after I've done this for years, I'll still be a greenhorn compared to many of the seasoned veterans we got here.

Those look awesome greenhorn! I love that color. From the kool-aid I guess. Neat idea I've never heard of doing that! Great job on the ribs!
