2 days in a row I get the pleasure of smoking something. First attempt at bb ribs and 3rd rib smoke total. Didn't realize that I was running low on charcoal so we have a mix of lump and kingsford. Pray I get there. Have apple wood for my smoke Last time I used a butt rub and I thought it was too salty so this time I made my own rub with no salt at all. Hope it works. Peeled the membranes off on 2 easy as pie and one just wouldn't give it up. Hopefully it doesn't ruin the experience. I am new to the rib thing so not sure about meat side up or meat side down so I am trying a bit of both. I am thinking I am going to run 3 to 4 hours untouched and than start basting. I have a suggestion for a maple syrup sauce I think I am going to try. Not really a foiling fan so we will see how this goes.
