first smoke

wish me luck ribs are going on in a few....


4 or so pounds of baby backs. rubbed them down last night. three different rubs. first one a "kanas city" from smoke and spice. other two are both different "memphis" rubs. I tweaked them all a bit.

I have to agree with Puff once again, it all looks great except that beer! We marched in a FD parade 2 years ago for a neighboring dept. They were serving us that crap for nothing after the parade. I just went home! BTW, in the second picture, if we get Scotty to zoom in, we can get the secret recipe to Gordons rub! Nice job Gordon!

that is from here. I work at a smaller local micro brewery called asheville pizza and brewing co. we don't even do kegs yet (except for employees) won't be long though. I mostly just deliver pizza but it's a great place to work.

I'll look up the pizza place next time I come to town. I love Asheville and go as often as the schedule allows. Wish I could find a job that would afford me living there.

How'd the ribs turn out?

about four and half-five hours

the two on the right are the first kc rub. they were the best we thought. on the left at the top is the last rub and on the bottom is the second rub, i really liked the top left. lots of brown sugar






so good!! no need for sauce at all. I didn't want any in the first place but my girl did so we made one from the smoke and spice book. it was nasty. not one of the guest even tried to use it cause it wasn't needed. one of my good friends that ate with us was a vegetarian for years until about three weeks ago. nothing like seeing a former vegi killing some ribs off the bone

Gotta love that

A little dark, but that the sugar in your rub. My bias. not a fan of sugar but if you liked it, that what's counts!

Good job on the first smoke.
