Did a practice smoke today for Sundays comp…. There is a time limit of 8 hours for ribs and 8.5 hours for pork butt. Started out with two different injections, none are super top secret but one is highly classified. Got the smoker up to 250 degrees and butts went in for their voyage to delectable land. Then got the ribs prepped for a 11:30 date with the smoker as well. Rub the ribs with Mad Hunky and let sit in the refrigerator till time. Of course I trimmed them down to a St Louis style for presentation. Here is what surprised me from this whole smoke today…. All the trimmings I used a new rub to me from good old Paul (beer-b-q). Man let me tell ya Mad Hunky has some competition in this house hold after today….I love the MH but I believe I have enough room in my heart to love to rubs….Paul’s is a slit more peppery to me ( my palate sucks tho, I am a pepper head) however my wife and buddy loved it as well. I have decided to use Paul’s comp rub for the ribs and MH for the butts on Sunday. After all was said and done I did the ribs with this time line @ 300 degrees. 2.5 hours-1.5hours-1hour…. they were a tad over done but with a little tweak they should be fine. I have never done a hot rib smoke before so this is new to me. The Butt’s came out great and juicy and I re-injected them after a sit out of the smoker, the family is jaw jackin on them as I type…thanks for lookin and if you haven’t tried Beer-B-Q’s rub you might want to jump on it, hell of a rub and HELL of a guy as well.

 

 

All rubbed and ready to go…one with a simple apple juice and brown sugar injection. The other has the same with a little garlic and pinch of all spice added….both were great

 

Beer-b-q (Paul) rub on the trimmings…none lasted longer then 5 minutes

 

Ribs trimmed and going to rest in the refer

 

All the kids tucked in to the WesTern SmOker

 

time to foil the ribs with your basic top secret classified method

 

butts before foil…Man I hate foil sometimes, but it is a necessary evil with this time schedule

 

out of foil and headed back to the WesTern SmoKer…man I have not had to mess with anything for heat control to this point…gotta love a good insulated cooker

 

just out and sliced with the new cordless electric carving knife…this thinkg rocks for cutting ribs where there is no power and you want a good presentation…IMHO

 

butts out and waiting for some attention

 

and a shot of the money muscle….

 

thanks for lookin.

Gorgeous Jerod! If you keep cooking like that you're going to be a sure-fire winner in that comp.
Remember to take lots of pictures at the comp OK?
I know better than to ask what you dressed the ribs with, but I have my suspicions.
Go ahead...play with your food!

Oh it's no secret Dave. I used some more rub, brown sugar, squeezable margarine, and then sprayed with the apples juice brown sugar mixture that I injected also. At the end I took some of the juice from the foil and apple juice then re-injected after it had set for about 10 minutes also....it was great !

the super top secret thing is a joke with a couple fellas.
