    What is the fastest spare rib cook you have done and what temp and time did you do them in?

    It all depends on your personal preference, do you like tight ribs or tender, fall off the bone?  Spare ribs need TLC and hours for a truly great product, but to each his own.  I am sure there will be numerous members coming behind me with their faster methods, but for me I smoke for 3 hours at 250, wrap in foil for 2 then use 1/2 hour back out of the foil on the grate for setting of my sauce / glaze and to firm the meat back up a bit.  I would assume at a higher temp, you could give them less smoke time and less foil time and end up with just as good a product, but I have been very pleased with my ribs, so I have yet to fool around with different temps.


    These (above) ribs won me $500 a few months back...and these (below) were for a friends family reunion...

    Just a few quick notes on running a stickburner 450 plus degrees.

    There's no room for mistakes.
    • Wood under the smoke chamber will catch fire.
    • Clear everything around and under the pit.
    • Have a safe way to extinguish the fire
    • Keep kids and pets away during a high temp cook.
    • The smoker will pop and crack like lady fingers on the 4th of July.
    • Extra clearance is needed.
    • Pit will steam like crazy. (3rd pic in my post is steam, no smoke)
    • Take care opening the pit, wear gloves, shield your face until the initial burst of steam dissipates.
     
  12. 8 min in 350 deg peanut oil. Cut the ribs into singles Then deep fry. Fair results.

    Happy smoken.

  17. I got through my first baby backs in over a year in 2 and a hlf last night. Got a late jump and singed them at 325-375 Came out real good even though the bark was a bit dark. It is a must to minimize sugar in your rub when doing hot and fast.
