    Well another weekend I didnt get overtime so mine as well smoke something.  Decided on this when i woke up so something reasonable was in order, figure I'd try spare ribs again.  Gonna try a 3-1-2 method this time for better bark and some pull.  Made a random brown sugar based rub and loaded even more sugar on!  Ill keep ya posted!

    With untrimmed spares you don't always see the pullback as well. Those are looking mighty fine to me!

    So after 1.5hrs in foil they didnt look so good, meat was really soft and the bones were disconnecting completely from the meat which i didnt want. Was gentle and put them back on and sauced them up to get some better color and everyone liked but I wanted better, plus the ends were very dry though the middle peices were nice.

    Well the ribs look pretty darn good to me. But I'm in fla and I can't feel the ribs. You said that you wanted some pull to the ribs too. Now I have found that if you limit the time in the foil you will get more pull. That's why when I do spares I only foil them for an hour maybe alittle more but not much. Then I take them out of the foil and back into the smoker for the last hour. Now ribs ribs do look yumO

    Those do look delicious!  I've also adjusted my foil time for spares back to about 1 1/4 hours to get a little pull.  I've been pretty happy with the results.  Wishing I had some ribs right now!  [​IMG]
