So i wanted to try to smoke some back ribs for the first time. iv tryed to slow cook them before on a gas grill, they were edible but i felt i could do much better on my new MES30. So i went down to Costco after work and got 3 racks of back ribs in a vacume pack. i washed them down and used a rub i found on here from Mnola917 adn let them set over night. i took off work a little early the next day becuse the excitment was killing me and i just had to get home and cook these puppys up. I used a modified version of the 2-2-1 method because i like a little more bite to my meat, so it ended being more like 2-1.4-.30 with the last 30 mins on the gas grill on high with a liberal brushing of Sweet baby rays Mnola917 3/8 cup Paprika 3 TBSP Brown Sugar 3/8 Cup Dry Mustard Powder 1 1/2 TSP Garlic Powder 1 1/2 TSP Celery Seed 1 1/2 TSP Sea Salt or Non-Iodized Salt 1 1/2 TSP Ground Thyme 1 1/2 TSP Ground Marjoram 1 1/2 TSP Coriander 3/4 TSP Cayenne 2 Cups Cane Sugar, or Granulated Sugar 1/2 Cup Seasoned Salt 1 TSP Ground Allspice 1/2 TSP Ground Ginger 1/4 TSP Ground Cloves It makes about 3.5 cups. If you want a spicy variation (which I highly recommend) you can add: 2 TBSP Black Pepper 1 TBSP Cayenne 1 TBSP Dried Jalapeno Powder i tryed the tile fix because this was my first smoke that lasted more than and hour 1/2 I got a bit busy and was unable to take any pictures of the meat in the smoker..sorry folks Dont mind my sloppy mess of sause and the apple juice! i have to say, even though these were the first ribs i have ever slow cooked all i can say is omg i need more! Thanks for all the help guys i coulds have done it with out this forum!
