"New Years Ribs" - The Pictorial
« on: January 01, 2009, 03:38:58 PM »
Well my smoking new years started on New Years Eve when I made up some the Sheekin Rolls that 10.5 posted. Here is a quick snap shot of those and how they turned out. These are a family favorite.



Now on to the ribs. I picked up a couple racks from a local butcher here. I didnt realize how much meat were on these things. Too much meat for ribs if you ask me. Its almost like I had the ribs, with a loin or roast still on top of them. They were huge! Here are a couple pictures out of the pack.





After a light coating of the rub I made, I wrapped them up and put them in the fridge overnight.



At about 9:30 the next morning, I took them out of the fridge and unwrapped them.



While the ribs were coming up to room temp, I put a coating of brown sugar on them. I saw this on a "competition ribs" video on Youtube.



The brown sugar will melt down as the ribs come up to room temp.



The smoker is now up to heat, and the ribs go in for 2 hours and 40 minutes of Hickory smoke.



After about 7 hours of heat, and some of Iceman's sauce, we have a finished product. As mentioned before, these things were huge and had a ton of meat on them. You can see it in the cut open picture.





Needless to say, they were very very tastey!  :P

Happy New Year Everyone!

Pork back ribs. I asked the girl working why they were so thick. She said it all depended on who cut the meat - some guys leave a little extra on and some take it off. I could have bought the thinner ones, but come on.... MORE MEAT sounded like a no brainer to me  ;D

Thank you everyone for the kind words. I have about half a rack left over so I know what I will be having for lunch today!

La Quinta - 10.5 posted the Sheekin Roll Ups first. You should really try them out if you haven't. They are wonderful! All credit goes to him  ;D
