Rainy Day Ribs

This time of year is usually pretty dry here in Souther California but over the last couple of days we've been getting some record rainfall. I put an EZup over my Performer a couple of days ago when the news said we would be getting rain for a week solid. It pored rain most of the day on Sunday so I decided I needed some ribs to brighten things up.

Opened up a pack of Costco baby back ribs and prepared one rack for the cook and vacuum sealed the other two for use later. Rubbed the rack with Suckle Busters Hog Waller. Set the Performer up with Stubb's charcoal and some Royal Oak lump with cherry wood for smoke. Lighted a few briquets with my torch and immediately placed the ribs on the grates and placed the cover on for the cook.

The Performer came up to temperature quickly and by adjusting the vents on the bottom, I was able to maintain a cooking temperature of between 285 and 300 degrees for the 3 hour plus cook. brushed on Susie Q's Sherry Citrus Rib Glaze for the last half hour of the cook.

I never realized that you can smoke ribs so nicely on a Performer until Larry Wolfe posted some of his rib cooks. It works great if you are looking for an easy way to smoke a small quantity of ribs.

Plated the ribs with some left over Pinquito beens and a mixed salad. The ribs really tasted great with the beens.

Great looking bones Lew!!!! I have learned a lot form Larry's posts too. I don't want to tell him that though, I don't want his head to swell up anymore than it is.

Re: Rainy Day Ribs

Great lookin' plate Lew, super smoke ring on those bones. I like the EZUp idea ... Wonder if it would keep the snow off my OTG?
