Johnny Trigg Ribs
Did some research and decided to take a run at Johnny Trigg's ribs. I have always cooked ribs unwrapped and was really wanting to see how wrapping and the adjusted 3-2-1 method would work.
Dusted with Famous Dave's Rib Rub as I have tried a number of commercial rubs and seem to like this one the best.
Used a MES 40 with oak wood chips. Cooked at 275 with a 2-1-30 min method.
I wrapped at the 2 hr mark per the Trigg recipe. Brown sugar, Parkay, clover honey, Tiger Sauce and apple juice.
Unwrapped and placed back in the MES for 30 min to firm up. I thought they turned out well. I was worried about them being to sweet but we really enjoyed them as is without sauce.
For me the take aways were that wrapping gave me more tended and moist ribs than I was getting unwrapped. I am also excited to try different things in the wrap to change the flavors.
