My first attempt at a low and slow baby back ribs, I started the cook at about 11am, after stabilizing the temp right at 250*. It was pretty easy, actually, just get the fire lit, close it up, and slightly open the vents until it stabilizes. Adjust a bit at a time, if necessary. There was a bit of fluctuation when the meat went on, but otherwise, fairly straightforward. Decided against the Maverick thermometer, and I was fine. Small steps, but they bolster my confidence, ha.
Anyway, two pics. The first is before I foiled, still haven't pulled back from the bone all that much, but were getting there.
The second is just a shot before they come off and out of the foil.
Really came out great, sweet with a bit of heat. Sad part is, I won't eat any but the one I had as I am off to a SB party. I had one and pops had one, and we are hooked. Plenty of room for improvement, but holy shnikes, this was a homerun :woohoo:
ETA: I used Gator Bait's recipe, thanks for the tutorial!
