First ribs on the AD 26er
« on: August 12, 2018, 12:35:58 PM »
I always buy baby back ribs as they have been my favorite cut but Iíve been trying to make better spare ribs lately.  I built a snake in the 26er with Stubbs. Not a happy start. I dumped the coals and many were broken in half, like the bags were hit with a hammer for fun. Setup the snake and lit the head and let the temp settle.

Hit the St Louis ribs with Stubbs rub and once she settled around 275 on the lid thermometer the ribs went on. I occasionally brushed on apple juice to keep them moist. They went on at 1:00 and guests were coming at 7:30, I planned to pull them at 7. At around 6 they were tender but needed to render some more. I threw the remaining coals in my SnS and sure enough the lid temp shot up to 375. They ran that temp the last hour.

They were beautiful. Fat rendered nicely, tender, and clean bones.

Snake in the 26er is rock steady!

Mine didn't come out so nice today, but I just take that as an opportunity to keep trying and getting use out of my kettles!

I donít know why but ribs are the most fun to cook. You can try so many different methods and end up with great results. Best thing to do is keep making them. I know this rack isnít competition worthy but Iíd like to try a competition in the near future for the hell of it.
