    Unthawed that second rack of ribs I got at Kroger a few weeks back for 99¢ lb. and am cooking them up today. Don't need to eat them today however, oldest son has invited us to his house for a Father's day dinner with NY Strip Steak grilled w/all the fixin's, so I'm hogging these babies all to myself for tomorrow night's dinner! (well, share with the wife of course!).

    Here they are after 3 hrs. on the smoker, ready to foil and put back for 2 hrs., doused with apple juice with a little in the bottom of the foil to braise.

    Thats some beautiful looking ribs, Pops! Wow....i wish mine would look that good. Gonna take your advice and stick to apple juice in the foil.

    May I ask what- if anything- you coated them with prior to foiling? They look outstanding!

    Here they are, all done after saucing and refrigerated overnight, going to reheat these for tonight's dinner!



    I rubbed them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika and Altern© (Walmart's alternative to Splenda©) before smoking, smoked for 3 hours with mesquite on high (about 250°), foiled and poured applejuice over them and braised for 2 hours on medium (about 180°), then unfoiled and basted with Stubbs BBQ w/soy sauce and Worchestershire sauce added for ½ hr. each side back on high (about 250°)w/ more mesquite a-smokin' into the sauced ribs for a final shot of flavor.

    Great looking ribs, Pops! I don't think I could have put them away without at least trying one bite. I think ribs are my favorite.
     
  11. Beautiful ribs Pops, that is what is for dinner tonight here... At least I know the pig didn't give his all for nothing when SMF members apply the TBS!
    I delivered the Winco ad for one of their stores last week, .98 a pound... so picked up 22 pounds (have some in freezer so didn't stock up).
    Thanks for sharing the q-view proved to me that my salivary glands are working... Am drooling before I get my first cup of coffee!!! [​IMG]
