    well, i'll be smokin tomorrow and thought i'd post a few pics of the menu....spare ribs and a pork butt rubbed with my own rub. i was going to do some abt's as well, but was in such a hurry to get out of the busy grocery store, i forgot the main ingredient.....jalapenos!!!!! so i guess the ribs, butt and lots of beer will have to do! i wanted to smoke with apple, so i called gander mtn. to see if they had chunks. they put me on hold and said yeah, we got apple. i said is it chunks or chips? they told me it was chunks, so i was out in a hurry. got down to the store and they had the saw dust looking chips and normal chips. i was kinda mad about it, but picked up a bag of mesquite instead, although i think i'm going with the tried and true hickory tomorrow.

    here's a shot of the ribs


    and the pork butt

    well after falling asleep by the recliner, i was awoken by the sound of my timer going off. it was time to spritz both down and put the ribs in the foil. dinner is supposed to be at 5, but the butt isn't cooperating with me [​IMG] . still haven't hit 165, nor do i think i hit the plateau either. oh well, it's always worth it when it's done. thought i'd post a few more pics. enjoy....

    well, i'm getting ready to pull the ribs here in about 15 mins. the butt still hasn't hit 165 (at 158 now), but hopefully once the ribs come out, it will speed up the process a little. i was hoping everything might be done around the same time, but since that isn't going to happen, i was going to wrap the ribs in foil and place them in a cooler with a towel to rest exactly like you do with pulled pork.

    has anyone done anything like that before? just wondering if it would be alright to do, or would the ribs turn to mush? i'll post some more pics here shortly.
     
  14. I've had to foil ribs a couple times but I just tented them instead of wrapping tight. They came out pretty good, maybe slightly "mushy" but still ok. I think you'll be just fine. Great looking qveiw! [​IMG]

    ribs are done and resting in foil right now. i didn't wrap them tight in foil, but did wrap them in a towel and put them in the cooler. i think we're going to dig into them soon though [​IMG] ! the pork butt is up to 162 now, so foil coming soon there! here's a few more pics.
