    My First Least Meal Ribs

    OK, so I moved the discussion of my inaugural cook on my new electric over here since this really was a last meal ribs cook. The final product was pretty good, but not perfect. 1 of the racks was a bit overcooked and was falling apart. The other was shoot on as far as doneness. The bark was a nice color with good smoke flavor, but very moist. Predictably, there was no smoke ring on the electric. Next cook I will try adding a Kingsford, bricquet to see if it will generate a smoke ring. Here are the pics: The first photo is when they first came off. The next one shows the inside of a rib from each rack. The overcooked rack is on the left. The next shows a close up of the inside and the last one shows the bark. The taste and texture were good. #1 noted that they were less salty, which she liked. This was thanks to AR since I deleted the salt from my rub recipe based on what I read here. The dry-brining worked out great. I'm sure I can do better as I learn the idiosyncrasies of the electric, but for a maiden visage, I was overall pleased.

    DEW! You the man! They look great.

    Forgive me for saying but you can't taste a smoke ring. I know its like shooting a big buck and all but ya can't eat antlers.

    I WISH my first ribs were that good looking.



      Thanks, Jon. I graciously accept ask accolades. But, to be fair, this is hardly my first rib cook. It is only the first on my new electric Christmas present. All prior experience has been with a leaky propane vertical at my vacation home in Virginia.


        There are no ribs before last meal ribs are there?

        Again they look great. Cant wait to see more out of that new box!

          Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

          We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

          The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
