    We finally finished harvesting tobacco, so.... time for some ribs. Smoked 5 racks of st louis and 4 racks of spares. All rubbed w/ Jeff's and smoked in the offset & vert propane.

    Goin in a smokers

    3 hrs in & ready to be wrapped

    Wrapped up in the offset


    One guy that helped us out w/ the tobacco said his brother was into cookin up Q. I had him try some of the ribs and asked him his opinion. I was surprised to to hear him say "Those beat the **** out of my brother's". He is suppose to stop by next week with a couple of racks for me to smoke for his brother to try. LOL By far the best complement I've gotten to date[​IMG] !!! Thanks to all here who've shared their knowledge with me!!![​IMG] With out all of you, I'd still be eatin ****!!!!

    Thought for sure you were using tobacco for the smoke on these ribs when I read the title.

    They look great! Do any in menthol?

    LOL, that's all we need. Two things that could kill us when eating ribs. Tobacco and smoked foods. [​IMG]

    Looks good.

    Man, I don't miss tobacco at all. I talked with dad over the weekend. They apparenlty planted too much this year, and think the frost may get some of it before they crop it all. Sucks, but live and learn.

    Is Conn. Burley tobacco?

    Ahh, thanks. I have zero experience with cigar tobacco.

    Flue cured, and very little burley.

    I'm sure it's nice to be finished.

    Thanks everyone!

    Erain - Glad ya asked. I forgot to mention the difference between the two. In the offset, I preburnt oak for the fuel. The vert just used oak chunks. The darker ribs came from the offset and had a more pronounced smoke flavor. Don't get me wrong, the vert ribs were da** good - just the offset's were just a little bit better. IMHO - others may argue my findings. LOL I'll ask the others that tried em ( doubt they even knew the difference ).[​IMG]
