Default On A Whim And A Beer (pr0n)

OK, maybe more than "a" beer.

My wife went out, no in-laws, it was just my son and I today. Good weather, the Jets were playing and I had an urge for something a bit different.

I had one full rack of spares in my freezer, and a lot of rib tips. I pack the tips, two rack trimmings to a freezer bag. One frozen rack and one bag of tips gives me one square cut rack and three racks of rib tips.

I love my ribs spicy, my wife doesn't. Oops, somehow, some cayenne powder wound up in my rub today.

I always foil my spares after about 2-3 hours. No Texas crutch today, bare bones all the way.

Today, I used red oak chunks for the first time. I have a fireplace and I always have plenty of red oak on hand. I fired up my 22 1/2" WSM to 275F.

I put the rack of spares on. After 2 1/4 hours, I put on the thick tips, after another 1/2 hour, the thinner pieces. When I put the thin rib tip pieces on, I started spritzing with a mixture of 3 parts apple cider to 1 part apple cider vinegar every 15 minutes.

After 4 1/2 hours, I cut up the tips, sauced them with Sweet Baby Rays Vidalia Onion BBQ sauce and panned/foiled them. After 5 1/4 hours, the ribs passed the toothpick test.

Let the feast begin!

The big thing about the spares was the bark, really good. The ribs were tender and really tasty, I just love the spice! The rib tips came out great, with a kick. I wish my wife liked cayenne, it was really farking good!
