My parents came up from Kansas for the weekend so decided to do some back ribs last night for them. I like spicy but my mom (and my daughter) prefer no heat. To keep everybody happy I used different rubs. On one of the racks it was yellow mustard and bone-suckin rub. On the other it was yellow with equal parts hot bone-suckin, DP redeye, and DP Jamaican firewalk.
I put them on with the PS legs up, drip pan, grid on top of the spider and let them go low at 215* while I went back to work (didn't know exactly when I'd get home). They weren't that close after 4 hours so I sped them up in some foil at 300* for an hour. They bent okay (and everyone was hungry) so I pulled the plate setter and licked 'em with a little direct flame for a smidge.
They turned out pretty darn good. Not the best meat to work with, but the bite was good and the flavor was there. I used a different finishing sauce than my normal blue's hog/gates combo but my dad said he liked it and that's good enough for me.
The downside was being on this frickin diet and having to settle for just a few ribs and a salad!
