    Smoker ready as well as the Babybacks..... Off to the smoker, the tensions a rising....
     
  11. I am doing some baby backs this weekend also.  Put mine in brine last night, my neighbour, about 3 pm today sent me and his girlfriend out to get 2 pkgs for him. I put his in the brine I had mine, took mine out and dusted with rub, wrapped in plastic and set in the fridge.  His ribs, at about 9 AM Sunday, I will remove from the brine, apply rub and smoke them all.  I know his are not done right, but hey, that is the way the ball rolls!

    You did remember to explain about holding your tongue in your mouth the entire time the ribs are cooking, and its either the left side or the right side, I can't remember which but that's what makes the best ribs. Its all about tongue position. You have to roll your tongue and hold it on the left side... I am pretty sure.

    These are looking good and I love you are cooking with your kids. My fondest memories are doing things with my Dad. They are going to love this, you are going to get great food, and your family is working together. What a great project.

    Thanks cf, they are a kick in the pants to smoke with !! And good point on cookin their own food, ya just don't know what ya miss with cookin (smokin) your own food.... beats down the store bought stuff any day and the bond ya get with smokin with your kids is somethin that hopefully will stay with them forever!

    Thanks cf, honestly this rub is just somethin we threw together last minute.... So we'll see how it turns out... Had a taste before putting on the ribs and there was just a little heat & a hint of sweet..... The pitmaster's did approve it however ! LOL
