I am in a house of baby back freaks, but the selection was not great on Friday as a sale had wreaked havoc on the Pork Aisle! So I picked up a couple racks of St. Louis'. The typical mustard smear, JH Pecan and Germantown Commissary rub, saran wrapped overnight, and on they go - 250 with Pecan and Hickory.


A bit of forum surfing indicated a longer I decided on a 4-1-?. Four without foil, 1 hr in, and cook em til they're done. Wound up with a total of 6+ hrs to get to the fold test. Sauced the last 30 mins with Commissary sauce (can you tell I went to Memphis recently?) thinned with Apple Juice:


They were tasty, but drier than BBs, at least with the treatment I gave them. Plated with some scalloped taters and beans. BTW - after removing the rib foil, the honey/apple juice/rub mixture from the foil went into the beans - KILLER!


Hope all you guys had fun in FLA and on the Gulf Coast. The next couple weekends will be spent "testing" TexasEggfest recipes.

    They look great. If they were dryer than BBs, I suspect it's because you cooked them too long. IMO, 4 hours is too long before wrapping them. I only go 2 - 2.5 hrs before I wrap for 1 - 1.5 hr.
