    Used a rub and wrapped them in foil for 1 hour in the fridge

    Then I put them on my WSM - Mini

    1 hour in

    After 3 hours

    After 3 hours on the smoker I took them off and wrapped them in foil and added apple cider

    Then I put them back on the smoker for 2 more hours

    After 2 hours I removed them from the foil

    Then I put them back on the smoker for 1 hour and brushed them periodically with sauce 

    For my first smoke I was really happy they way they turned out. Fantastic!

    Looks great! Make sure to experiment! I never foil my ribs as I like a slight tug not fall off the bone but there are many ways to success. I also have my ribs dry most of the time, maybe a touch of sauce on the side. Different wood or mixtures of wood can be great as well.
  3. Meijer just had Spare Ribs on sale for $2.99 a pound, so I bought 2 racks in preparation.

    What temperature were you running at ?

    They look delicious, and make me want to run home now and do mine!

    Well done.

    Great job Chris...I use that exact technique too but when I foil I toss in butter and brown sugar instead of the cider.

    Great pics and great looking ribs!
