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 -
