I wasn't celebrating Cinco de Mayo, hence the title.
Mrs SJ buys a pork butt, a chuckie, and a rack of ribs (this is a GOOD woman. no, she is a GREAT woman).
The weather here on Sunday was overcast and cool (California cool). Perfect for smoking though.
So in go the ribs (Big Mike's Rub from Chicken in a Barrel - Kauai), chuckie (South African smoke bled - Trader Joe's), and butt (South Seas tri-tip rub).
Had some wind (2-3 mph), so the temps in the pit went between 225 and 270.
My memory failed me, so I smoked the ribs for 2 hours, and foiled them for 2 hours. You can see how done they are by the pic.
I would have shown you how they looked sliced, except ribs + teenage boy = nothing when your back is turned.
The only thing I heard was "OMG! They are falling off the bone....nom nom nom nom".
Here are the butt and the chuckie!
Happy Monday to all!
