Smoke advice for the following diff rib recipes
For July 4 (technically, id3), I plan to make a trio of ribs on my large bge:
Hot pepper glazed beef short ribs
Chipotle cherry baby backs
Given the mix of flavors, what kind of smoke would you recommend? The chipotle cherry ribs should have something robust, but the others should have something light, or nothing at all.
Right now at home, I have alder, cherry, sugar maple, hickory, and mesquite, though I can run out and get something else if any of you have a strong opinion one way or another. Right now, I'm thinking sugar maple with a smidge of cherry. Part of me was wondering if alder would make sense here.
