    Well I rubbed down a rack Friday night was going to smoke them Saturday but ended up cutting down a big tree so I never had time. So I'm smoking them tonight haha. It's cold and rainy took about 2 lit chimneys and an unlit to get it to temp.

    Apparently I didn't get the pic of the rub down. So you will have to wait for the finished product

    Not as much smoke as I like but still good no foil this time. Used cherry/hickory

    There was meat on the ribs I was debating about cutting off but I figured if it wasn't any good I wouldn't eat it. I think they just didn't trim it very good it was almost like a pork chop consistency a little dry. Anyone ever have that
     
  10. What temp did you smoke at   AND is your temp gauge accurate ?

    225 and yes its accurate. It wasn't the ribs that weren't tender it was a hunk of meat hanging off of the ribs

    Was it a chunk of loin still on the rib that dried out?

    was it just a boneless flap left on the end of the ribs,if so it's common with the sheet rib, it dries out pretty quick and becomes tough.baby backs won't have that flap.
     
  14. I took that "flap", which I think is called the SKIRT?, and cut it off my spares.

    I took it and rubbed it, rolled it up, and stuck a toothpick in to hold it together.

    On one of the steps in the 2-2-1 method it looked done, so I pulled it off.

    Can`t really recall how long it had been on, running a pretty constant 250, but man....

    it was a pretty tasty snack while waiting on the main event to be done.
