The colour is great in my opinion, but is there a smoke ring?

Could be my eyes, I just woke up.

They also look like they need to pull back from the bone more.

Although I'm not the cook, I also think the cut needs to be cleaner if they were for a turn in box.

cuts need to be a lot cleaner, do you think they are too dark?

You read my mind. I was wondering if they were too dark, or was that a prob with the camera. I like my ribs to be lighter.

I think they're a little dark Cappy. Also the cut needs to be cleaner. And it's hard to tell from the pic, but if you can't take a bite and have that bite pull clean from the bone, then they might not be done enough. ("pretty much bite through")

they weren't bad, but because of something I did after purchase,
they came out ham on a stick.

today will be better, I'm sure. gonna end up switching to spares
if they don't come out perfect though.

I always thought bb's would be more impressive to judges and
win more often, but I think the judges are growing in their sophistication
to where they can appreciate spares as well.

Spares are easier to perfect, so I was hoping for some "degree of difficulty" points, but I think in the end, what's good is good.

Chicken skin needs to fully cover the chicken. Crisp sauce cooked on skin with a nice even color all the way around. Judging is very different here in Texas, we turn in a fully jointed 1/2 chicken. Ribs look good, but I think the meat needs to pull a little more from the bone to show how tender they are. Just my .02 cents, overall everything looks fantastic!

I'm cooking with hickory and cherry, maybe the cherry is
giving it the dark look

Yeah, judges' preferences aside, they look like real good eatin'. I'd be happy to serve them. How did they get hammy, Cap'n?

I basted with melted bacon fat, the curing agents were strong enough
to give me ham on a stick.
