    Nothing fancy but haven't done beef ribs in quite a while so I figured I would smoke some tonight.
    Also picked up some sausages and brats while I was out to smoke and figure out later what to do with them.

    Firstly I have a question for all of you good folks.
    Bought my pack of beef ribs, well when I opened it hidden underneath were some scraps, 2 were basically nothing but bone and I thought it was kind of unacceptable figuring they were just adding to the weight of the package.

    What do you think? Not that it was a lot but when I buy meats I expect a certain level of quality but maybe I am just being fussy about it...

    So anyway, on to the meat!

    First slab I did coated in olive oil and my chipotle rub

    The second was Worcestershire and some Kansas City rub I got in an exchange with Beer-B-Q

    Took the couple of scraps that had meat on them and coated in wasabi mustard, wasabi powder, sea salt, pepper, garlic

    Sausages because a full smoker is a happy smoker and I like to keep my baby happy [​IMG]

    Heading outside to fire it up now, going to smoke over cherry and do a 3-2-1 on the ribs spritzed with apple juice.

    Those ribs look good and with the rubs you have tried they should be really good.
    Now I could only come up with like you that the butcher just wanted to add weight to the package and I think I would have to say something about it next time I was in there. Will you get any smoke flavor on those brauts when you heat them up.[​IMG]

    1 hour in, need to rotate the sausages but coming along nicely.
    Am trying one of the racks of ribs facing down to see how it comes out.

    Sausages took just over an hour to come to temp, when they hit 162 I wrapped in foil and left on for an additional 10 minutes.
    Hot on the left, Italian in the middle and Brats on the left

    The hot and Italian were ok but the smoked Bratwurst was outstanding!
    On a slice of white with sauteed onions and cayenne honey mustard from Beer-B-Q, it is unbelievably delicious!

    Just made a fresh drink, Snapple (I LOVE it!) and vodka, gotta go wrap the ribs in foil and on with the show.
    I'll snap a pic of the ribs before wrapping.

    Looks GREAT!
    At first glance at the PIC's of the Wasabi pieces, I was like "What the #@$%", then I stopped to read... Another great idea! - Thanks,

    Wasabi rib pieces were good, definitely something to work on, wasabi flavored rib-with the smoke it really has a nice flavor.
    Ribs were good, nice and tender as the 3-2-1 allows, KC rub was nice and sweet with just a little kick, chipotle rub has a nice bite that lends well to the smokiness.

    After a great smoky meal I'm ready for bed...
    Night all.
