    Look really good - What internal temp did you have when you did the bend test?  At 225, mine normally take about 5 hours.

  • There you go J!  If they tasted as good as they look, your family is very fortunate.  Welcome to the forum!  It's good to have you here.  Make yourself at home.

    The glaze looks good. What sauce did you use?

    3.5 hours @ 225...they cooked much quicker than they should have.

    Oh, it's always good when they realize you're not crazy.

  • Looking like a pro already. I too, am surprised only 3 hours at that temp. Usually takes me 5 hrs as well.

    Unfortunately I didn't have a thermapen at the time, so I couldn't get a good temperature reading. Because it was my first cook I agonized over how quickly they finished. Everything I've read on this and other forums showed that they should of cooked a lot longer, but the bite test finally proved it. It wasn't until a couple weeks later that I realize why they had cooked so much faster. I was shopping at the local market for another set of BB and thought that they were much larger then the ones I had previously cooked. When I got them home and reviewed my notes I realized the original pair were only one pounders. (1.2 and 1.1 respectively) I'm assuming the weight, coupled with my inability to keep the temp at exactly 225, caused the shorter cooking time. The next set of 2 pounders took almost 5 hours.

    Thanks Cazzy. I used a thin honey glaze (1 part honey, 3 parts water) Heated it up in the microwave for a minute and then dabbed the ribs. It doesn't impart much in the way of taste, but it really shines up the presentation. Makes my mouth water every time I look at them!

    I glaze with Bone Suckn' Sauce...you should try it as the flavor is awesome on ribs.
