    Just had to do some ribs. Been looking at so many other peoples here I couldn't stand it anymore. So lets get right to the pics.

    Here they are after being rubbed and sitting in the frige over night. Ready for the smoker:

    Smoker is ready, temps pretty much stabilized on both sides:

    Ribs on the smoker. Had to cut a couple of the slabs to get them all on:

    TBS working its magic. Using just apple wood for smoke:

    Trying the 3-2-1. Here we are just before foiling:

    It occured to me that I didn't have any liquid to put in the foil with the ribs, so I made up a cocktail of cherry Kool-Aide from the fridge  and some of this mixed 50/50. Actually tasted pretty good:

    Ok, here we go. Right out of the smoker. The only complaint I have is that the rub got a bit crispy around the edges. Check out the pull back on the bones:

    Well, this is what I ended up with. The meat was surprisingly tender and juicey and a smoke ring that wouldn't quit:

    Hope they looked as good to you as they tasted to me. As I mentioned, the only complaint was that they got too crunchy around the edges. But I'll live with it. [​IMG]

    Thanks for looking. Happy smoking all.

    Nice looking ribs! I would guess the extra crunch came from a large amount of brown sugar in the rub? Either way they sure looked tastey!

    Yeah, that's my thought too. Only thing is, if I cut back on the brown sugar, I basicly am changing the recipie and I don't want to do that because it really tasted good the way it was.

    Maybe skip the last hour out of the foil? Might try that next time.

    Now your ribs do look delicuous and the smoke rind is a good one too. I like touse some brown sugar in my rub but not as muh as some folks that I have seen here this past week. I saw someones ribs had about 1/2" of brown sugar on them and they must have burnet pretty bad too. 
     
  11. yall are freaking amazing i hope i get at least half as good as yall are at smoking
