Rib Cook on the Kettle

I prepped and rubbed 3 racks of loin back ribs with Wolfe Rub at 11am and placed them in the refrigerator.

At 1:45pm I set up my Weber Kettle as a smoker using the BBQ Baffle and placing a drip pan with water on the opposite side and a drip pan over the coals.

Used the Minion Method and lit 10 briquettes and added them to approx. 40-50 in the kettle. I used Guava Wood for the smoke and placed ribs on the kettle at 2:15pm

At this time the kettle is running at 238º with all bottom vents closed, hoping for it to settle in around 245º-250º.

Will keep you posted and will have pics later.

Took the ribs off at 6:45pm due to time constraints with wife & daughters dance class, they really could have used another 1/2 hour but they were 95% done.

Used 3 sauces KC Masterpiece Original and Classic (my new favorite) and Ole Rays Apple Cinnamon.

Weren't falling off the bone but the bone came clean with one bite and a little tug. Great flavor and good smoke ring. Liked the aroma of the Guava Wood and Larry's rub added a nice crust to the ribs with tender meat underneath.

Finished pics are here:

57º and sunny today Nick, thanks for caring!!!
