  6. wow they came out pretty darn good!

    heres some pork porn....







    i used apple wood chips, real nice smoke taste.what other wood is good for ribs? the top rack ribs were a little strong tasting. i might use a little less chips next time.

    smoked them for 3 hours, wrapped for 1 , and let them rest for a half hour.

    ....hmmmmmm....wonder what i should try next......maybe brisket.....any other suggestions?

    I usually use Cherry and it turns out great.  As far as whats next, you can never go wrong with a fatty...or a turkey, or a brisket, or a chicken, really anything, i guess i'd suggest the fatty, nothing better then bacon wrapped meats[​IMG]

    A Chuckie is a thick, 3-4", chunk of Beef Chuck Shoulder Roast. It's one of the most perfect cuts of Beef for, "LOW and Slow" smoking. It has a good blend of Fat, Lean and Collagen (a connective protein that breaks down into Gelatin) that will yield a Tender, Juicy, Rich, Beefy Flavored piece of Heaven.

    Nice work on those Ribs! They look mighty tasty...JJ
