    Well the big Son is off at college now, so it's just the three of us and we don't need as much food on the smoker, so here goes. The Labor Day smoke started off with one Blueberry Pancake Fatty, it was delicious. Sorry no pics.
    After the Fatty went on some Raspberry Vinaigrette marinated steak tips, trying for that bitter/sweet thing. They were more tangy/sweet, but tasty.

    Then came the Chocolate Chipotle Baby Backs. Done in the 3-1.5-.5 method.
    going on the smoker.

    After 1.5 hours.

    Firming up after the foil.

    And on the plate with a neighbors version of Dutch's Beans
    (Her new favorite, thanks Dutch)

    And just because a pic of Sparky, my ever-present 4 legged buddy.

    These ribs by the way, were some of the best I've ever cooked as far as texture and chew go. Nice clean pull off the bone, and nice and tender.
    The taste was also excellent. The recipe came from Raichlen's Book "Ribs, Ribs Outrageous Ribs" page 110. The ingredients were chipotle peppers, onion, garlic, cilantro (I left this out ), semi-sweet chocolate, lemon zest, brown sugar, Ancho chile powder, kosher salt,lemon pepper and oil.

    norrell6- check out this link-it's to a radio show that Raichlen was a guest on. There is a pdf download link that has the chocolate chipotle ribs recipe as well as several others.

    Buy the book. there are lots of really good recipes in there from Peanut Butter ribs to Jamaican Jerk ribs plus sides and drinks. And yes these ribs where really meaty. I got them at a BJ's Wholesale store and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. $3.69 per pound though. Last time, June, they were $2.79. But these were far superior. Guess you get what you pay for.
