    First try at Last Meal Ribs

    Well like the title says this is the first time I'm making ribs with this recipe and I'm off to an ominous start. Cooking on the smoker listed in my sig.

    First off I woke up about an hour later than I really meant to, so I immediately rushed out to get my fire going. A rather large spider ran across my foot as I'm getting the smoker out. I'm not proud of it but this grown man screamed like an eight year old girl. I hate those damn things why must they be so creepy.

    The days second tragedy occurred right after I finished putting the rub on. I was going to boil some water for the pan and turned on the wrong burner on the stove. This would not have been a big deal if it were not for the fact that the burner I turned on had my bag of MMD on it.

    I feel like I'm marching with two left feet today. On the plus side it's an absolutely beautiful morning here in Michigan, about 70F, no wind, perfect.

    I will try to post some pictures of the ribs when I'm done. Didn't really feel like looking for the camera this morning. In any event I will let you all know how everything turns out. Hope I was able to give you guys a laugh today.


    LOL I think we all have those types of days - and like you said it's beautiful here in the glove so enjoy the non -30* weather and the ribs!! I'd love to hear how your cook and the rest of your day goes


      Aside from first thing this morning it's going great. About 4 hours in took my first peek and did a quick bounce test. Not there yet but they look amazing. As soon as the wife wakes up so she can tell me what has become of my camera I might be able to share some pics.

                            Thanks Jon. Yeah they came out pretty good. I think next time I will use just a bit more salt as I think I went too light on it this time.

                              I went saltless in the rub and will sprinkle a tad on them when they are done.

                            Oh yum!
