After Barry arrived today I was itching to do some cooking since I haven't gotten to for a while. I decided for my first cook on the new grill I would try cooking ribs. I went to the store and got 2.5 racks of pork spares and then trimmed them down to St Louis style just like Mike showed me. I then got the ribs ready to hang and got the charcoal ready in the chimney. After dumping the chimney I added 3 chunks of apple wood to the coals. The whole cook took around 4 hours or so and for a first time on a brand new cooker I have no experience with I think they came out pretty good. After munching on rib tip cuts prior to the main course being done we have lots of leftovers. I will put the progression below.
Ribs trimmed and hooks in place
Rebar in and wood chunks in ready for the meat
Ribs are hanging
One hour in
Off the grill and getting ready to cut after removing hooks
I actually got a small smoke ring
