    So this was my first time smoking some ribs. I didn't take a bunch of pictures but I will give you a run down of what I did. Started with a slab of St. Louis cut spare ribs. I trimmed them down a little. (There was a little flap of extra meat on it) then I applied a Cajun bbq rub that I got from our local butcher shop. I heated my MES 40 to 225 and the ribs went in. I did the 3-2-1 method. I foiled them
    After 3 hrs and put some Brown sugar, honey , and apple juice in the foil. I cooked the extra meet clippings and pulled them out at this point and had for a snack. The rub was spicy! After 2 hours, I unfoiled, put some more honey and Brown sugar on top,and let it finish cooking. I passed the bend test with flying colors. Here is a pic of the finished product. Take a look at the smoke ring![​IMG]
    Let me know what you think!

    Ribs look fantastic. Nice smoke ring.

    I presume they tasted as good as they look.

    Since that was your first time, how do you plan to improve on that??

    Good job..............

    Probably going to switch up the rub. This one was really spicy. I will probably mix it with something. Next time I am going to do some bbq sauce with them

    Thanks guys! Everyone enjoyed them. I think they tasted better after a couple days in the fridge.

    Those look really nice, ACS! I'd keep the sauce on the side, not on the ribs! They don't need it..
