The race is on... Turbo Babybacks
1 Attachment(s)
3 slabs of babybacks, liberal coating of Yardbird, on the Egg at 300 at 10:30 am. Want to eat and leave for Lakeside Speedway opening day by 2:30 pm.

Plan to foil after 2hrs, unwrap after another hour and finish unwrapped. Will I make it? Do I need to bump up the temp. to 350 while in foil? Go a half hour longer and eat on the way?

Tune in in 3 hours for the exciting finish! :thumb:

I think you'll be done since they are baby backs.

2 hrs. in... Wrapped after 1hr, 45 min. Copper colored bark, split and weeping... Not much bend when held in the middle of the slab, though. Temp. now at 320 and rising slowly.

Yes! Tender, juicy... but not falling off the bone. Good bark, pink smoke ring. One slab 2/3 eaten... rest for after-the-race snack. 2 slabs vac-sucked & in the freezer. Pron when I get back.

Attachment 93550Pron., as promised...

Left 2 slabs in foil (20 min. more) while we ate... Nearly "fall off the bone" Surprised at the difference the extra time made. Guess it like H&F brisket... Window much smaller than at lower temps. Both of us preferred the first slab. Will enjoy the others when we thaw them, though.

Picked up a 3 pack at Restaurant Depot. Dug through a stack of them until I found the ones that looked the best. Don't remember the price... It's not on the sticker.
