    My wife's brother was in town last weekend and he had wanted some Q. So I said sure no problem. But there was a problem. We had a potluck memorial service to go to at noon on Sunday and we would be having dinner with him at 630 pm. CRAP!!!!!!.

    I wasnt worried about the TriTip or Chicken but the Ribs needed time to cook.

    I decided to do the ribs at a higher temp then normal because I had to have the smoker higher for the chicken.

    So the Ribs went on at 1430 I had the smoker near 300. Was using pecan wood. Sprayed them with apple juice at the 1hr mark. Foiled at the 2hr mark with apple juice. Pulled out of the smoker at 1800 so they were in foil for 1.5 hrs. Finished on the grill with Chipolte Cherry BBQ Sauce.

    TriTip went in a marinade of Italian dressing at 1400. Put on the smoker at 1600ish. Pulled at 1730 and did a quick sear on the grill then foiled.

    Chicken went on at the same time as the Tri Tip and pulled at 1800. Finished on the grill with the Chipolte Cherry BBQ.

    So everything looked great. Tri Tip was great. Chicken was nice and juicy. Ribs were tender and pulled from the bone nicely but were a little salty which bothered me. I just couldnt figure out why my rub was salty. Atleast not right then. After thinking about it I realized that I grabbed the SeasonAll and not my rub out of the cabinet. CRAP!!!!!!!. All in all I was happy with the food. Lesson learned is to never rush grabbing for spices.

    Below are a few pics. Thanks for listening

    Congrats on a great smoke Brian. The ckicken, tri tip and ribs look tasty. I pulled the same switch with a hot BBQ sauce and didn't realize it till after someone had picked up the Q. I've got to read labels that look alike...

    Yeah I didnt realize it til half way thru dinner then I looked at the ribs and there were still alot left so I knew everyone realized it but didnt want to say anything. [​IMG] I guess that's what I get for using a old seasonal container to hold my rub.

    Your telling me. Salt Salt go away and come back another day.
