    Default Spareribs 2 ways

    Both slabs were ruubbed and vaccumed sealed overnight and smoked at about 240 for close to 6 hrs. The rack at the top of the picture was smoked 3-1.5-1 and sauced the last 30 min. The bottom rack was rubbed only....both were very taste and tender but the top rack that was foiled for 1.5 hrs is like my wife likes them...almost falling off the bone...used about 8 oz hickory.

    Damn, those look good. I'll have to try my next ones the way your wife likes them. Nice job!

    BillyBob....3-1.5-1... Correct in assuming 3 in the smoke, 1.5 in foil in the heated cabinet and 1 in a cooler? Or back in the smoker without foil? Please clarify. They look great!

    bigwaleye....3 in smoke...1.5 foiled back in smoker at 240...1hr unfoiled back in the smoker and sauced the last 30 min. If you try to foil for 2 hrs, they will be too tender and hard to put back in the smoker. Just take them out...let them cool a bit and enjoy!!!

    ...and I did try them today on a run of 2 racks of BB's. Ran a little short on time, so modified to 3.25-1.25-.75 (hey, I had to have the wife start them while I was at work, and the commute today was brutal) and then sauced 1 rack with 20 min left in the .75 cycle, 240, 2 oz of apple. Might have to try a big load loke BillyBob does some time just to see...... Going to do the full 3-1.5-1 method next time,with a sauce at 30 min, but this was a great result. Very tender, but not too tender, fell off the bone, great flavor, and still held onto that salt/sweet thing that I like.

    A BIG +1 to BillyBob.

    Smoke on!

    Kept a half rack in foil and warmed them on the grill at the lake over the weekend with a nice baking spud. Even on the re-warm they were killer. Half a rack, a baked tater, and a couple cold ones really hit the spot.
