Pitmaster "T"'s HnF Weeping Ribs (PRON)
I decided to give Pitmaster Donnie "T"'s weeping rib recipe a go. For several reasons.
1) I wasn't all that happy with my L&S ribs.
2) High heat is easier to maintain on a big offset instead of tending the gentle L&S flame.
3) I offered to bring ribs for lunch and wanted to sleep in.

#3 is probably the greatest motivator. I must have watched Donnie's Tony Montana impression at least a dozen times. True to form I blasted my firebox with oak real hot. Toss on the ribs and waited for the foam. Now I didn't get as much foam as I'd like but eventually like magic, it went from bone dry on the surface to a sweaty weeping mess like James Brown on the video!

I then shut off all my vents and foiled up my stacks as their covers are crap.

30 mins later the probe slid through like butter. The Ribs were a hit! Juicy, Tender, Perfect. Check 'em out -

Oh man I love ribs and the look great.

This looks great... You did a great job.

I think these are the first ribs a guy should make that is new to making ribs OR just wants to experiment at the Baseline of what ribs can be.

I joke A LOT about these being the best ribs and I assume everyone gets the joke... yet some don't. BUT as I mention in the "Edict," this technique, is one of those easy things to master... and from there you can go your own direction.... Its just a good, easy starting point. The discovery also of what the rib does (you can see since its not in foil) is cool too... it goes from moist and flexible, to bone damn dry, making you think you have ruined it... it tightens up and then POW... it weeps.... the meat literally goes from dried out and chewy and tight to moist, tender and dripping with sweat.

Remember the Candy Glaze... surprisingly it does not take away from the taste but adds a nice sheen and retains the moisture

And also The Flea Powder

Yep. I tried Donnie's method a couple years ago, modified it a little for my cooker and haven't looked back since.

Thanks Pitmaster T! I'm looking forward to putting out your brisket as well. I just need a crowd willing to sample.
