    Went home at lunch to throw some spare ribs on my new MES 30'. I started the smoker, got the ribs prepped and threw them on about 1150. I'm hoping to squeeze out of work for a few and wrap them up around 1430-1500. I wanted to try them with only salt and fresh cracked pepper and then sauce them in the last hour. Hopefully they are as good as I want them to be. I'll post some pics later!

    sounds like a plan....ahhhh, the age old question 'foil or no foil'.....if you can't squeeze outta work guess it'll be a no foil operation.....Willie

    I like 'em with just salt and pepper best! Is that the smoke I am smelling now?

    One of my favorite ways to cook ribs is with just salt and pepper and no sauce, Bare naked ribs!

    I just wrapped them up with a little margarine and a drizzle of sauce. They were looking pretty good. They seemed they would be pretty tender even without foiling. Next time it's no foil no sauce and only salt and pepper. I'll post back after they're done.

    Well here is a final pic. I didn't snap any good ones. The bigger end of the rack was just tender enough, but as the rack got smaller it was kind of tough. I just gave the smaller ones to the kids, they didn't mind.
