A couple of Saturday's ago I performed a not-so-scientific taste test consisting of three racks of ribs purchased from Sam's Club rubbed with three kinds of rubs I happened to have in the pantry-- The BBQ Guy's Original Spice Rub, HomeBBQ.com Rib Rub, and Billy Bones' Original BBQ Rub.
Three racks of ribs rubbed up and ready for the cooker. I usually marinate them in the refrigerator overnight, but this time I put them straight on the cooker.
After two and a half hours in the smoker at 225 degrees.
Here's a picture of the ribs after cooking for 3 hours. I turned them meat side down and added some apple juice.
Even though it's upside down, this picture shows the ribs after flipping them meat-side-up. Just prior to the final stages of cooking.In this picture I'm adding some brown sugar just prior to the last 45 minutes of cooking.
Here's a picture of the finished product. I like to add the bbq sauce during the last 10-15 minutes just prior to serving them.
