Good Day fellow Smoking Fanatics! It's a fine day on this 3 day weekend for some ribs, and I've been craving these babies for weeks! Here's the run down: Bought the tyson pack a week ago on sale at WalMart, 4.5 lbs. Ran to the store this morning and luckily found them laying out MORE RIBS ON SALE for $1.99/lb. Can never have enough ribs in a college town right?? Will be doing the 2-2-1 (or thereabouts) method today, with pecan/cherry and a bit of apple wood. Keeping it very simple this weekend (Gotta make a good impression for the pals). This first rub is an applewood. Used a mustard base. These fellas are sweet n smokey. Also mustard applied. Took me a while to figure out how to organize it all to fit, since my 3rd rack has my drip pan. Had to bust out the rib rack. Also, I am trying a potato out to hold my thermometer. This will be the first time I will go strictly off my thermometer instead of the door, hopefully will give me a very accurate calibration on where my door gauge stands. Using my thermometer... it I did not warm up the smoker beforehand. As I type this it reads 205. My door reads just under the 250 line (240-245). My temp control is still cranked on high, I'm hoping the thermometer will start jumping up soon so I can turn it down to low like normal. Quite a large gap, so I hope this works, or my ribs are cooked! Quicker than I want that is hehe. Enjoy!
