Ribs,,,, It's what's for dinner.
« on: April 24, 2012, 08:05:38 PM »
Along with Coleman appliances, I'm a bit of a stick burning junkie.





Meat drawn up exposing 1/2 inch of bone? Check!



Smoke ring?  Check!



Clean bite through without pulling all the meat from the bone? Check!

You totally nailed it. I sometimes get it right but when I miss especially the bite without pulling it all off the bone, no one seems to notice or at least they donít say anything. I bow to you mastery. You are the man.

These look delicious, but I guess I don't know enough about ribs....I thought you want them to "fall off the bone".?

Yes and no. We want to eat them that way, but in competitions they would be consider overcooked.

What kind of wood did you smoke with? I've been using apple lately and like it a lot.

I don't really have a wood preference. I generally start with a little hickory and oak. When time to add more wood, I just add oak for the remainder of the cooking time because I am focusing on heat control more than smoke at that point. In reality, I'd just as soon not produce much smoke for the second half of the cook. I figure the flavor is already achieved in the first half, and the tenderizing happens in the second half.

When I can get it, I'll trow in a bit of pecan. When I lived in Arizona I had access to a lot of mesquite,,,,,,, I really liked it!
