    Aloha,

    Yesterday a friend of mine helped me with some minor welding chores. I promised him some ribs....so I smoked a rack for him this afternoon. I thought I'd practice posting views as well as practice my smoking technique.

    Here's the end product:


    I foiled these ribs. Next smoke will be unfoiled. I'll also try to take better pictures....Thanks for looking. I hope everyone has a productive week. :>)

    These were only the second set babybacks I've smoked. Most of the time I've been smoking spare ribs which I trim St. Louis style (thanks SMF).....and I've learned to stay away from any "enhanced" babybacks. Boy....I like this forum...great place to hang out and learn.....

    Hahaha! Classic mballi!!

    Those ribs look really tasty Dog! Thanks for the post. I've never trimmed ribs St. Louis style (honestly, I don't really know what it is). If you have a sec, could you pass on a bit more info about it?

    Thanks!

    Hi ISUTroutBum,

    If you look under the Pork Thread, there is a Sticky that has all about trimming St. Louis Style. There are much folk there who explain it more clearly than I ever could. I think someone on there posted a link with pictures too....that's how I picked it up.

    I've found that the trimmings can be used a variety of ways....For me I use the trimmings to make a Filipino dish we call Adobo..... I like to drip some of the Adobo fat onto hot rice, add some salt, and eat the rice along with the pieces of meat. Others just put rub on it and toss em into the smoker to serve as the "cook's fingerfood" to go with beverage when smoking. PS..thanks for inspiring me to smoke some salmon a few weeks ago. I had a bit left over, so I made a sandwich spread with it. I had smoked salmon sandwiches for lunch for a few days....They were great.

    Thanks for the heads up on the sticky.

    Also, I'm glad you liked the salmon!!

    Best,
    Trout
