Last Sunday's BB rib cook

A little late getting these up, but here's my rib cook from Sunday, first ribs with Dizzy Pig, one rack with Dizzy Dust and one with Swamp Venom on top of yellow mustard with the membranes removed.  Did the 2-1-2 method this time instead of 2-2-1 at approx. 230-240* grate and they turned out fantastic, very tender with tons of flavor just a hair short of falling off the bone at completion.  Am going to probably go with a straight 5-hour cook next time with no foiling and see how it goes.

Both rubs were fantastic and the Swamp Venom did have a little extra kick, but not so much that it was overwhelming for those who don't care for too much heat.  I also added some red potatoes with EVOO and Dizzy Dust after the first two hours.

Getting started....Dizzy Pig on the left, Swamp Venom on the right.

    Looks pretty good, ever try "smashed potatoes"?   You might consider wrapping your probe cable in a couple of layers of foil to reflect some of the direct heat from your lump below.  Just that portion inside your egg.  Might save you some hassle with probe cable failures??

    Those look great. Smashed potatoes are great but I have not done them on the egg.

    I second the foil suggestion. I have the same CGS grate and have a hard time attaching the temp probe to the grate. I wadded up a piece of foil and stuffed it between the grates. No I just attach the probe to the foil and it is easier for me.

    Did you prefer the ribs with mustard or without?

    I do, but a very light coating and more so because the rub sticks to the meat more efficiently.  And I will add some foil to my probe cables.....haven't had a problem yet, but can't hurt.

    I neglected to mention (and there is no edit feature?) that I did of course go indirect with lump and a combo of apple and hickory, about 3-4 good size chunks each.

    Ribs look great.  I love smoked taters as a side item. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    Care to explain the 2-1-2 method for a newbie?
