Default Rib test (w/ppron)

I had a couple racks of BB's and was walkin thru Farkways with the Mrs. and spied some Famous Daves Rib Rub. Well always up for a challenge I bet the Mrs. that "Not so famous Eds" rib rub was better than that other guys. And off we went. It was over 40 * this weekend which is normally enough to cause the EDS to get fired up anyway.
I rubbed mine with my homeade rub and did the other with FD's.

Looks pretty good after a couple hours.

After about 3.5 hrs half of each one with secret sauce ready to chop.

Let the contest begin! (i told you guys I can't cut up a slab of ribs to save my arse)

Well afterthe blind tasting "Not so famous Eds" rib rub came out as winner in both the dry and wet catagories.
Yeah me.

I like the looks of that browning on em and they look good ever which a way. To cut em good and straight turn em up on their end with the back of the rib facing you (bones running vertical wize) and before each cut spy out just where the bone runs and the curve of it and then when you cut you will know where the knife needs to go bro. It's just too hard to cut a curving cut with em laying flat.
