    I prepped two racks of spares all the while knowing that a storm was brewing on the horizon and the ambient temp was at 57°. I gave them my regular 3-chile rub, letting them rest in the fridge overnight. I then started smoking them at 225° with lump and mesquite chunks.

    After the first hour, I gave each rib rack a mopping of sauce. After the second hour, I mopped them again and foiled them for 2 hours. Finally I unwrapped them, giving them another 1 ½ hours of TBS.

    Pics left to right are before smoke, just before foiling, last hour, plated, and the suace mixtures. Sorry about the plated pic, that's all that the folks left me to work with.

    The flavor was spicy and smokey, with some fruity sweetness in the background. I don’t know if the sauce is your type, but I was looking for something new. BTW, I did beat the storm.

    Spicy Hawaiian Tropical Sauce:
    5 parts Curley’s Mesquite BBQ Sauce* (courtesy of Rivet)
    4 parts Cranberry mustard
    4 parts Hawaiian Pineapple mustard
    4 parts Maui Onion mustard

    Thanks for checking out my smoke and Q.

    That sounds really good.
    Some really interesting mustards you used too, never heard of pineapple or cranberry mustard.
    That Curley's is great stuff though, that much I know for sure.
    Thanks for sharing the recipe Rich, definitely one to try [​IMG]

    Great job Richoso, very nice. You say you have a storm coming? HA, that system you guys have is making its way here, to Minnesota. Only were expecting it to be around 10 degrees with 12 inches of snow. I blame this one on you guys out there. LOL. Points for a great looking smoke.

    Great looking recipie there rich. This storm is huge. Still raining way down in the southwest like CA, AZ and NV and it's just starting to snow here in IA. Supposed to get a foot of snow and 30-50mph winds. Gonna be a nasty one. Guess the smokers won't be going around here for a few days.
