Alright it has been a LONG time since I have participated in any Q-View posts. I recently picked up a MES 40" and have been using it quite a bit for parties here and there but have been slacking on my documentation. I have been really craving some beef ribs and I hit up a local small town butcher here in Phoenix and picked up a slab. I have never marinated them in the past and figured this would be a good time to try it and make the ribs seeing as I will probably be really short on time with my first son coming any day now. The marinade is a just a complete out my arse concoction and I have never made a marinade before so we shall see how it comes out. I made it with a good amount of stuff but it largely some apple cider vinegar, and mixed juices. I also have some habanero hot sauce, cayenne pepper, black pepper, kosher salt, honey, thyme, brown sugar, cinnamon and I think that was it. Anyway here are some shots of the meat and marinade ready to sleep for the evening for smoking tomorrow, as long as I don't end up at the hospital with the wife. Also of note don't worry about those bottle near the meat they are just sitting there in anticipation and still need to be cleaned and sterilized. I will post some more pics tomorrow as the afternoon progresses.
