I have typed this six times keeps disapearing hope not repeating post.  Been reading forum for a while and thought I would try a post. Baby backs cooked for niece who has been under the weather.  Rubbed with dizzy dust, spritzed with mixture of apple juice and apple cider vinegar,and finished with orange glaze. 


  • Nice job Doc.  How long did they go and at what temp?
  • What time is dinner? Looks good. Thanks for sharing.
    Love me some maple.  Go Canadians.
  • Took longer than I thought they would almost six hours,dome temp 275. Had them over plate setter and foil wrapped drip pan.  I did open the lid a lot to spritz and also cooked some boneless chicken breast and asparagus for supper on the side since I was giving the ribs away.  Was reading forum after supper and thought why not take a picture of the ribs and participate instead of just reading all of the time.
  • Got it.  Certainly the chicken/asparagus added some time to the cook.  Nice multi-tasking though.   Just a thought.....try some bbq sauce/honey mix for the final glaze next time.  I picked this up a while back and I do it almost every time now.  Good stuff.
  • Used my late dads glaze        1 cup ketchup
    1/2 5oz bottle A1
    1/2 small can frozen oj conc.
    mix and heat.
    Will try honey and barBecue sauce though
