    I'm trying the 3-2-1 method today, and was wondering if there was a specific amount of apple juice i should add. Couple capfulls? 1/4 cup? I'm doing two racks cut in half, so four foil pouches total. Any help would be great, and I have about an hour before the "3" is up[​IMG]
     
  2. i just spray them real good before i wrap them

    Suppose you don't have a "spray bottle"[​IMG]

    Mop it on or just pour it on like you suggested. 1/4 cup sound good to me.

    I don't think you can really go wrong here, I don't have a spray bottle but I do have a brush that I use to keep them moist. Just splash on a little before you close up the foil, I might use 1/4 cup in each foil when I am wrapping a whole rack.

    Holy Crap! Just finished them, and wow. Unbe-frekin'-lievable! I'm going to have to try again next weekend, just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. Here are the results:



    The upper right and lower left got sauced and an extra 20 minutes to caramelize, so we'll have to wait and see what they taste like. 3-2-1 FTW!

    Nice job... I use a natural fiber small paint brush to "mop". Have several around... cheapos. They last about 10 smokes before they get nasty and bristles start breaking off...but they are cheap.

    I typically fill my smoker whether I feed me or a party. Seeing your ribs, I'm going to feed my office the remaining ribs and pulled pork from 2 weeks ago just so I can run out of meat in the freezer, just to give me a reason to smoke this coming weekend!

    Damean, nice looking ribs. I used the 3-2-1 method yesterday for the first time, with Jeff's naked rib rub, and they turned out great. Best ribs I've done so far. Looked just like yours! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm good!!!
