first turbo baby back ribs

fasst1fasst1 Posts: 7

I kept reading about turbo style and tried the other day on some ribs.  I must say I was amazed by the time and how tender/juicy they were.  attached is a picture of  the finished product.  I decided to use mesquite just for the heck of it.  looks like a powerful smoke ring..  They tasted wonderful and I used a new pork rub from Costco.

    It's a turbo butt for me on Sunday too. I have too hard a time holding a low and slow temp and I'm not bold enough to do an overnight cook.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Turbo Butt came out pretty good but I didn't hold a 350 temp so it took about 6.5 hours.

    How long and what temp did you do the ribs?

    Turbo rules..... Baby Back Turbo Ribs (No flip) 350 indirect for 1hr 40 min. Before cooking: Pull membrane , rub, mustard, rub. Put on at 350 and leave the hell alone for about that time. This is called turbo ribs and I will never go back to 4 and 5 hour ribs. Note: with or w/o mustard works .. I like Bad Byron's Butt Rub / I like cherry & pecan mix for wood. If you want sauce: opened 15 min early and sauce. I like the sauce on the table.

    TURBO BUTTS. · Hot'n fast, 350 for 5 hours to internal to 200. Falls apart and oh so good! Have fun! · Be sure you only get a 7lb butt or so for the time (or a couple ((same amt of time)) or more for more protein ) . Note: The butt box is not required unless holding for dinner. I use mustard & Bad Byron's Butt Rub (both not required). I put on the rub, then mustard, then rub once more. Ps: I do not foil. Also good with the coffee rub.

    Thanks! I always have admired you on these boards, Mickey.  Met you a couple years ago as a shy, timid, picking up my first egg gentleman in Salado at the fest.

    Sorry but can't put a face. Just saw where you live in Austin. That first and second Salado Fest I could not remember myself being there.
