My best side ribs yet
« on: May 13, 2018, 08:46:04 AM »
I don't think I'd be too welcome at that vegetarian association's booth across the street at the convention centre.  Anyways, I don't have any in progress pictures but I just had to post the finished ones I took because these side ribs are the best ones I made yet.

I picked up two racks  of side ribs w/breast bones and seasoned them up with some commercial rub. I need to mix up more of my own at some point.  Then put them in the WSM and let it go while I did chores.  And there they stayed much longer than I intended, about six hours total.  That made a huge difference. In that one picture, you can see how that tender, juicy meat just flakes apart no problem at all. They were great. The other picture was the lunch I took to work.  I'm going to have to plan on 6 hours plus safety margin for all future side rib coons from now on because I don't want to go back to how they had been turning out on me.

Beautiful ribs!  Just tell those vegamatics that you would be a vegetarian if bacon grew on trees!

Looks grate! I think that if I tried that for 6 hours they’d be hard as concrete from drying out.

“Veggie Challenge” looks like it involves eating pamphlets.
It's the iconic symbol for the backyard. It's family/friends, food and fun. What more do you need to feel everything [is] going to be all right. As long as we can still have a BBQ in our backyard, the world seems a bit of a better place. At least for that moment. -reillyranch

Being veggie is not for me.

Oh, I did forget to mention, I did spray them with water twice around the three and five hour marks.  I also use water in the WSM's water pan.  I know some people cook without it, or with it dry or filled with something else like sand or balls of aluminum foil.  Without the water in the pan and the two spraying, I'm sure those ribs would've been hard as a rock.

The last pork I had was from pigs that were fed with no animal byproducts. They were vegetarian, so, since I ate them, I'm vegetarian.
