First batch of ribs on the new smoker

Discussion in 'Pork' started by roke87, Apr 18, 2015.

  1. First off I would like to thank everybody on these forums for all informative advice I have read throughout this forum (main reason for me signing up) long time reader, first time poster.

    Anyways I have been "smoking" for a couple years now but mainly just with a smoker box rigged up in my broil King bbq. This spring I decided it was time to take the leap and bought a master forge propane smoker based on reviews and reccomendations on the forum. Seasoned it a couple weeks ago and haven't seen nice weather since, so with a plus of 21 degrees (Celsius) today, I thought it was the perfect day for some ribs. I am pleasantly surprised about the results, and couldn't be happier, some of the best ribs I have tasted and with a little tweaking who knows, it could be time for competition? Lol. Anyways here's a pic because I know how visual you guys and gals are on this forum, wish I would have taken more though. Tips and critics always welcome! Happy smoking.
  2. Color is great, look tender and meaty  I'd say you hit a home run    Good Job !!!       [​IMG]

  12. Thanks again everyone! :thumb1 copy: they definitely were a very meaty rack of baby backs, but I guess that's what we're used to up here in the great white north.

    I am pretty happy with how they came out, the girlfriend absolutely loved them, and I thought the smoke flavour was spectacular. I did em low and slow with the 2-2-1 method. 2 hours of TBS at 225, then 2 hours wrapped in foil with my concoction of beer, butter, and brown sugar. Then unwrapped and back in the smoker for another hour with the last half hour for saucing.

    Wow, those are some meaty ribs. I would love to find some of them! I guess I'll have to start buying my ribs in Ontario, cuz they don't make them like that around here! LOL. Great job!

    So now the big question...... What to smoke next weekend ?
  17. Couldn't wait, the next day I was doing burgers!

    As for my next adventure in the smoking meat world, not exactly sure yet, can't wait to do a butt or a brisket though. Also been eyeing some jerk chicken or beef ribs. Oh the weekend needs more days...
