Who smokes ribs here?
I did it last Memorial Day, with pretty good success, but I want to make sure I have GREAT success this year.
I'm only using a charbroil charcoal grill, that I do heat on one side with wood chips on the charcoal...on the other sides I have the rack with ribs and a drip tray under it, full of apple juice. I then had a sprayer of apple juice and ACV that I sprayed once in a while.
I did St. Louis style ribs, as I find them meatier than baby backs.
Not a true smoker, but it does the job, and I think they were dern good.
I made a rub of what I had on hand, but I wonder if maybe you could share your rub recipe, as well as which BBQ sauce you've used?
Also, if you have suggestions to make this smoker work even better, let me know!
My heat got a little high last year, so I need to control this more, but it's a PITA, trying to fluctuate between not enough heat and needing more charcoal...and too much heat!
Oh well, as long as the beer is cold, and I can relax all day, I'm a happy man.
Thanks for any help!
