    Got some country ribs at a marked down price at Sam's club yesterday. Rubbed them last night with a new rub i'm working on with the help of Richtee. [​IMG]



    They've been in the smoker for 3 hrs at 230. I'm using hickory today. Sprizting every hr with a mix of 3 parts apple juice and 1 part Capt. Morgan. Ready for foiling.



    They've been foiled with some of the spritz liquid for an hour now. Oh yeah! They are done! I tried to pick them up out of the foil and it fell apart. I've put them back in the smoker and cranked it up to firm them up a bit.

    Mmmmmmm......
    Looking really good.
    So if the meat pulls off a little too easily rewrapping them and tossing them back into the heat will firm the meat up a bit? If I heard right and am on the same page then that is an absolutely amazing and handy little tip!

    I did not rewrap them. I just couldn't pick them up to take them out of the foil so i folded it wide open and left it on the rack.

    I don't know yet. They will be eaten in about an hour. I will post the taste test results later tonight.

    We have to have a very early dinner today due to scheduling issues, more like linner. It's not really lunch, but too early for dinner. [​IMG]

    I will say first of all that you have way more will power than I do...I would have eaten the first piece that broke off at a minimum! Have to make sure that it is good for the rest of the crew to eat! [​IMG]

    Ok, they got mixed reviews. The ribs themselves turned out excellent. Tender, juicy and falling apart.

    The rub was a disappointment. Get this, my wimpy family asked me "Where's the zip?" I never expected them to ask for it. [​IMG] I'll have to give some serious thought to what it needs. Oh well. [​IMG] We slathered them with some Sweet Baby Rays and they disappeared.

    Those look incedibly delectible...[​IMG]

    I have a family pack in the freezer...for about a month...I was thinking of smoking 'em, now I'm gonna have too! I'm thinkin' lemon/rosemary rub (spicy/hot) and mesquite/hickory blend.

    Thanks for sharing! Those look great![​IMG]

    Anyone that would ask me "Where's the zip" would pay dearly next time. I like spicy food, but I try to keep it manageable for the family. The next time would be blazin'. I'd use my jerk seasoning rub & lights out!

    Oh, it will definitely be zippier next time. [​IMG] My family are a bunch of wimps, which means medium salsa is too hot. I've been slowly increasing the heat level of food without them knowing it. I think I've just gotten some successful test results back. [​IMG]
