The results of my weekend Q.
I gotta say, I haven't straight smoked ribs on a BBQ in a long time. They were bite off the bone tender leaving a clean bone, and moist. No foil or crutches used. I surprised myself.
I ran a fatty over to my buddy next door and they enjoyed a slice while we BSed. He told his wife, then his BIL, as they were slicing into the fatty, "You won't like that"... I thought that was funny. I'll have to sneak him his own one of these days. They gave me some ribs that someone had given them, cooked with a grape jelly glaze. I ate them walking back home. They were pretty good. I'm not sure how they were cooked though, but they had a nice look to them. Like they were at least grilled or something. Gawd I love eating
I "taste tested" an ABT and a slice of fatty myself before going over, then ate those grape ribs walking back home, then ate a couple of more ABTs and half a rack of ribs when I got home. Life is good.
