Out of Practice mistake and Christmas Gift

First for the mistake. Only my second cook during my vacation from Iraq. Made a spatchcock the other night for dinner. Today smoking 9 racks of bb ribs for son and daughter to eat while wife and I are taking a belated (23 years) honeymoon to Vegas. Also some for the neighbors and for a friend of my son's dad who took him to the bowl game in Houston, paid for tickets and dinner.

Oh, the rookie mistake was that on 5 of the racks I forgot to pull the membrane off and didn't realize until I was seasoning the last 4 and the others were already on the grill, hope they turn out alright. Also tried rubbing them with yellow mustard before applying the rub. 5 racks with JH pecan rub and the last 4 with just fresh ground pepper, seasoned salt, and paprika.

Also trying out the new Christmas gift from the wifey, hope I get it right.

Sorry to be so long winded. whew

Will post pics of the finished products later.

    Welcome back AG. Leave the membraned ones for the kids, they won't even notice :laugh: Enjoy your vacation/ honeymoon you've earned it.
  • Thanks Poolman, you're right had the son do a taste test and he said they were good and didn't notice. Just hard to admit a mistake when you know you should have caught it. :sick:

    Will enjoy the trip, first one without the kids in like 19+ years!!
