Welcome Home Baby, Rib smoke w/Q-view

  1. I have not done a smoke in about a month as I was waiting for my wife to give birth but have been itching too.  A few weeks ago she gave birth to our first child, so this past weekend we decided to have a BBQ so that everyone can meet the him.  We decided to do ribs as the local supermarket had them on sale for $1.50/lb.  We did 4 racks with Jeff's rub and 2 racks that were purchased pre-rubbed from a speciality butcher a few months ago.  I used apple wood for smoking on both.

    Pre-rubbed ribs going on the grill (yes it is a gas grill)


    I had no issues retaining heat on the gass grill, but my smoker vgave me hell and took a few hours to get to maintain above 225.  I set out to do the 3-2-1 method.  the first 3 hours went smoothly minus the heat issues.  When it came to wrapping in foild we used Coca-Cola as the liquid for all.  After 2 hours foiled, it came time to remove the foil but the ribs were already at temp.  So I unfoiled them and laid tem back on the grills but at a lower heat to keep warm.

    Ribs all cooked and cut ( Sorry, my father Cut the racks and mixed them up,so I can't tell which is which)



    When it all said and done everyone loved the ribs (those that like ribs at least), especially Jeff's rub. 

    All in all it was a good smoke and daddy's little helper was pooped out at then end of the day.
