Just cranked up the smoker. Using oak for smoke. Mmm. Time to sit back and have a cold one.
Beer thirty already? ... Looks good, enjoy...
Been a looooong week...
Smoke times up. Next, foil and apple juice concentrate.
Looks wonderful and a good choice of beer! Just curious, Why one without rub?
I did the rub on one rack, the other I used a seasoned tenderizer. Wife wanted to try it so I did.
I snuck some rub in the foil. Just didn’t seem right not seeing any on there. Time will tell.
How do you use the apple juice concentrate?
When I wrap the ribs in foil, I put a little bit of the concentrate in there and seal it up. Sometimes a bit of butter on them but not this time.
They’re very close to coming out of foil and getting sauced. The fam likes them wet so I use heavy smoke with the last heat to tighten it up.
Didn’t you eat ribs on a bike ride yesterday?
Lol, yep. I should have got the brisket or pulled pork! We’ve been to that place before and never had the ribs so we said next time we get there, ribs it will be. I left my friend take all the leftovers, which were quite a few bones! $30 for a full rack! Way too overpriced imo. $17 for a 1/2 so we split one.
Back on smoke all sauced up.
Couple potatoes hanging out in there. If you’ve never had a smoked baked potato, try it. Makes for unreal smoke potato salad!
Wife made two Key Lime pies for desert...
The wait is over.
Only one more pic after these. Gonna be a while before we feel like eating pie.
And a few lunches.
That looks awesome!
And you're killin' me with those pics!
Don’t forget... pie!
The Wood Wolverine. That food looks spectacular. You are obviously much more ambitious. This smoked rib recipe only involves covering with steak
seasoning at least 24 hours before smoking. I have never used oak. I used combination of hickory cherry and apple. 5 hours at 225, tasty but yours look
better. Okay I'll admit it. Also I like charcoal better but could never seem to keep at consistent temp. Is that why you just use smoker at first?
You sharing did involve a little torcher looking at them pics but you gave me some good ideas going forward and for that sir I thank you.
