    How many of you grill your spares for a bit after smoking?

    I have done it with good results.
  3. I guess I've never tried it, but I wouldn't be against it if they came out alright.

    Set the sauce especially a sweet one, it will carmelize it.

    Well, I have been grilling, but I really wonder if it adds anything to a great smoke....thus the poll. Thanks, ya'll!

    I am not sure that a grill could make these 100% smoked spares any better.[​IMG] I used the grill for ribs before I learned how to smoke, but since I have had my smoker going the grill has hardly beeen touched, its been at least a year!

    I've used the grille a couple times to finish some ribs, most of the time it's just the smoker.

    sure have, Im always trying new things, and kind of like the char taste it adds. Of course I am only using lump charcoal on the kettle when I do it.

    I don't want to be bothered with firing up the grill (it's a charcoal one) when I'm smoking ribs (or anything else really) just to finish something off for a couple of minutes. If I already had it going for some reason then I probably would because I'm sure it would taste good to set the sauce that way as ronp has mentioned.

    Now in years past I have grilled spares on the grill and it's one of the reasons why I now smoke such things now. For one thing they are alot more tender and much tastier too. As far as the oven No never not gonna happen. I will always start and finish them in the smoker.!!!!

    I would throw them on the grill if I were to cook them a day ahead or if they had to be placed in foil for several hours and they were getting cold. Other than than I just pull them off the smoker and foil them a while and eat.

    yes well i dont sauce them anymore, i sauced em with an hour or so left and it caramelized and absorbed all the smoke and was bad.
