Hi Everyone, I am new to the site and am pretty excited about whats happening here. I was actually given the thread from a couple of nice people over at rv.net forum. Floridacamper also intriged me with pics of his ribs that looked just tantalizing and mouthwatering. I purchased a Smokey Mountian propane smoker and will be firing it up tomorow for the maiden voyage into cooking up what I am hoping will be great baby back ribs. I come from a town called Slave Lake , which is about 2.5 hours North west of our capital Edmonton (home of the OIlers). I live 5 minutes from one of the largest lakes in the province that hosts walleye, Northern Pike, whitefish, ling cod and other species in abundance. Hunting is basically off the doorstep with Bear, moose, elk and as many deer as I have ever seen. Local body shops can hardly keep up. A couple of friends also have Bison farms so I can hardly wait to get my hands on some dinosaur bones and give them a whirl. I haven't even fired my smoker up and here I am sounding like a veteren ! LOL. I purchased Jeff's rub and sauce recipes and was wondering if I could apply the rub tonight and rewrap and place back in the fridge or if I should wait until just prior to me smoking? I was also wondering if I could use the sauce inconjunction with the rub in the last hour as I am going to use the 321 method? Any suggestions would surely be apprciated. What about a little splash of apple juice in the foil or am I getting too carried away here? As far as my handle...I am into hot rods and I had a 68 Camaro SS that was bad and I was bad evertime I got ito it ...hence the name BADSS. That ones gone and am now running a 69 Barracuda as well as a 69 Beaumont (Canadian Chevelle) Thanks everyone for allowing me into your forum and am really looking forward to my new found hobby! Cheers from BADSS.
