    I'm not too fond of the vertical rack method as it allows adjacent ribs to touch and form pink, raw-looking spots that mess up the appearance of the bark.  You can cover it up with some glazes, but after years of judging I can spot it right away,  Has no effect on flavor or doneness, but I'll ding you in the appearance category if I spot it.  You did say perfect...;)

    Thanks for the comments..   I will have to make them without the vertical rack.  It's the only way I have ever made them.  Thanks for the hint PhotoPro

    racks are great if you're doing 6 slabs.  As long as they taste good who cares about the pink spots.  I've ribs now a couple years and never noticed them...lol.  I'm sure they were there.  Enjoy  :)

    I leave the daisy wheel open about a quarter of the way. And, my bottom draft maybe an inch to inch and a half.  Make an adjustment and let it sit for 10 mins or so to regulate. Once you get it the first time. You will not have to mess with it as much the next time. Just start with the bottom and top in the same place once you dialed it in.  Just be patient.. It's worth it in the end.

  • Nice job! They look great.
    I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike Bar.

  • I can't cook mine over the plate setter without them getting a strange texture that almost makes the meat seem raw. It's not of course, but I prefer them direct cooked on a raised grid. Maybe I'm cooking them wrong or something. Usually do around 250 or so for a couple or three hours. Meat is nice and done at the bone with about 2/3 smoke penetration into the meat. The texture is just wierd. I talked to a guy who does competitions and he said that's what they look for, but I don't like the taste.
