    So last weekend was a 2 night trip to GA to see the in laws. I got a request for ribs. I saw Walmart had whole spares $1.84# so I got three. I made two honey sweet and one bacon Chipotle. Here is how they come out

    Trimmed, seasoned, overnight, on the smoker, added sauce, let it set up

    They were a huge success!

    Thanks for looking and comment if you like!

    Enjoy the Smoke,

    The first pic was before they were trimmed. I cut off the rib tips and cooked them separate with a different rub and sauce. I didn't square the end of the rack because once I have the tips off I figure it will taste ok.

    Here is the trimmings:

    And here they are on the smoker:

    Happy Smoking
