I was craving some spare ribs yesterday, but time wise I was on a burger budget. Steaks last night, but today I cut out from work early enough to get the Backwoods Party fired up.

I was in a rush because of a 3:30 appointment. I got home at 2:15 and fired up the smoker.
Then I threw 2 slabs of spares in the kitchen sinks, both full of tepid water.

I let them thaw while I hooked up the Guru. then a quick rub with a new BBQ rub made here in Tulsa ( I'll post a pic of the bottle in a bit)

Here are the ribs

More of that Sterling silver stuff. Nice ribs. Good fat content and fat distribution

Nice regu;ar shape w/o a bunch of extraneous meat hanging off the edges. I really didn't see anything that needed trimmed. I left what little flap meat there was on the slabs and will need to trim one before serving, but the other won't need trimmed. These things look like someone new how to trim a slab 'o' ribs.

More pix as they come done. They went on at 3:15, but will be a while cuz I keft the shutter choked down too much while I went to my appointment. I got back @ 4:30 and the pit temp was only 217.

I don't mind using IBP ribs but I can't ever find them under 4.5#. Not only that, but they are usually very irregular and have a heavy brisket bone, not to mention a lot of flap and tail.

I just started being able to get these Sterling ribs about 9 months ago and I cen get a lot of 4 and downs and they are almost always in pretty good shape, not a lot of waste.

I never mind paying a little more for a better product.

LMFAO on the BBQ Rub Picture Tim.

That picture is the perfect set up for something that was already put in motion to get a laugh out of you a couple days ago.

Glad to see 3 Guys branched off a little locally, as I know they folded the team (from national comps anyway, I think Brad still does the local one they started) and their sauces and rubs have disappeared from the market for the most part (unknown whether still local)

Hooked up with one of the team members a few years back and got my own distribution line :cool:

Incoming!!

Right after taking the pic, I got out the .22 cal air rifle and popped him right between the eyes. He'll eat real good after soaking in MSG water for a couple days.

That's a wombat James!

But if I cut off the juicy meaty ends of the ribs, what would I have left to eat?

Actually, I bought it by mistake. I thought it was from Patrick from the Saaaamokin' team.

It tasted good by itself, but after they were cooked, I couldn't really taste much more than the salt.

If you like their products, they are still available from specialty stores in the area. If you want something, let me know.

Your getting something a little different.

Great for grilling pork chops, good as a butt rub too.

Watch mail box Sir!

Dem bones shore look good!!!

Personally, I prefer alot of meat on the flap because I always pull the flap meat and make a batch of chili with it. Makes real good chili!

We usually run whatever trimmings there are ( after cooking) through the food processor and freeze it for Baked Beans.

Tim, There is a spice company in Fresno Ca. that makes spice mixtures for all meats and seafoods that give you the choice of regular salt content, half salt content, or no salt. I have have been to the Santa Maria Ca. area where they the local cities have their " Santa Maria style tri-tip cook offs during their local festivals. Several of the people that I talked to used a rub called Pappy's Choice Seasoning. I bought some, tried it, and thought it to have a great flavor.
heres their web site....www.pappyschoice.com

Tim, I've used the "Pappy's Choice all around Seasoning" on tri tips, and flank and skirt steaks after marinading just prior to grilling for Fajitas. Also used it to season chicken thighs. Excellent results.
Would order the seafood rub but have no decent seafood in southwest NM. Have to shop for a supplier that can ship here on ice ( not likely ) or save room in the rv's freezer and fill it up on our next trip to the coast.
