TONIGHT'S COOK: Baby back ribs

Done using CWM's tried-and-true 3-1-1 method, using JH Pecan on the bone-side, and Dizzy Dust on 2 of the 3 racks, Redeye Express on the other. Used one chunk of hickory, and one chunk of pecan for the smoke. Wife cut into them before I could get some pics:


Mine on the plate now:

Got a fattie on the cooker with about another hour or so left before I take it out of there.


  • Dang good lookin ribs right there. I finally made it statside last night. T-rexing some Ribeyes now. Will post some pictures later. Great to be back in the U S A!
  • Mike: Glad to see you are still active on the forum. These ribs are really beautiful looking. We always us the 3-1-1 method and have found it pretty much fool proof.

    When using the 3-1-1 method, do you foil for 1 hour? I usually do 15-30 minutes.

    Welcome back! Hope that your home was spared from Ike...I'm happy that you're eating some nice steaks now instead of the chicken feet you showed in the pics a few weeks ago.

    Hi Mike,

    Hope your ribs turned out well for your cook! Yeah, it's good to see you on the forum again, too. Just waiting for the weather to turn just a little bit cooler, as it's still a bit on the warm side to be tending to the cooker right now.

    Take care,

    I follow the recipe to the "T" and just extend/shorten the last part as required. I went to the grocery store today during the first "1" and made it back just in time to unfoil and sauce the ribs.
