"Car Wash Mike" ribs on the big green egg
did three racks of baby back ribs today as a tribute to "Car Wash Mike" from the big green egg forum who passed away this week.

cooked at 215 for 3 hours indirect, misting every hour with 50/50 apple cider vinegar and apple juice. i rubbed the rub into the bone side after i removed the membrane, but just let it sit on the mustard on the meat side. refrigerated for one and a half hours before i put it on the grill.

after 3 hours, i bumped the temp up to 250 for the next hour and a half, misting at hour four and then two more times 30 minutes apart. sauced the ribs and finished them for 30 minutes at 275.

he used a fruit wood in his smoke, usually apple or cherry, but i couldn't find it, so i used the sm spicy apple rub. i followed everything else using his technique. i'm not sure why i ever changed. these were the best i've made since the last time i used his technique and seasonings.

Beautiful cook and pictures. The first time ever that I cooked ribs over livefire I used Carwash Mike's recipe with great results. This is a great way to honor him DS.
