Baby Backs

I fired up the Horizon to smoke 6 racks of baby backs. They were marinated over night and I pulled them out of the fridge this morning to warm up. Patted them dry and applied a sweet rub. I'll let them go for a couple hours or so at about 200F to take on smoke, then foil and finish. Four will hit the freezer after being vacuum sealed. I figure I'm burning the pecan anyway, might as well fill the smoker. I'll post some pics later.

I've never had that happen as I use a little cider in the packets and the temp is below 225F.

The ingredients for the marinade and rub are ok to post, but directions, word for word is a copyright infringement. Here is a link.

Apple City Baby Back Ribs Recipe from Shaun & Kelley Schnettgoecke

I wouldn't know where to begin for an alternate to a smoker, other than different methods for a BGE or Weber charcoal grill. Both can do a decent job, but nothing can compare to smoking with a pure wood burning pit for full flavor.

Your smoker looks identical to mine. At least the hinge part looks exactly like mine.
Ribs look great!

Craig, are you trying to make me a carnivore! I already eat probably more meat in a meal than I should. I need to eat veggies too. Those ribs look like something I could dive right into, head first with my mouth open.

Just post some great veggie and fruit sides to go with them. Help me remain a true omnivore.
