Done lots of babybacks on the kettle but never any spares. I've always liked babybacks better but I'm trying to make my spares better. I was pressed for time yesterday and only had about 3hrs to cook these so I smoked them at 225 for about 45mins then upped it to 350 for the rest of the cook. Cooked with regular K and mesquite chunks. Rubbed with yardbird and these came out pretty good but they definately would have been better if I had more time. Oh well it was fun and I always enjoy cooking on the kettle. This thing is the most versatile cooker I've ever used. I've converted a few people already into buying them :-P. I should have trimmed them before but oh well there is always next time. Just ate them with white bread, beer and they didn't need any sauce.

Look pretty darn good from your neighbor a couple states north. Sure look full of flavor for the little amount of smoke time.

Good lookin' eats right there! I do way more spares than back ribs, mainly due to the cost.
