Baby backs on the Mini

While at IKEA the other day I saw a little cart that I thought would work with my Mini & get it off the nest on the ground to a more comfortable cooking height. It got a test run yesterday:

Seasoned a small rack of baby backs with 50/50 mix of Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple & Cherry Rubs, then put one half on then a raised grid (barely high enough): Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

The Mini was cooking in the 260-275 range and a few hrs later (with some spritzing of AJ) they were close: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

They shrunk just enough to finish on one level: Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Felt like going without sauce this time. Sliced (ignore other ribs in back of pic as they were not cooked on an Egg): Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Ribs were good but it was sure a tight fit. St Louis spares lie a little flatter & fit a Mini a little easier. The cart passed the test but I may look for a little bigger casters with locks. I might add some weight to the bottom shelf as well for added stability. Thanks for looking!
