The problem with not being able to eat is not being able to taste this stuff. When no one is around or immediately available, it’s impossible to get a victim to taste test it before anyone else eats it.
The ribs came off the smoker after about 4.5 hours.
The meat has pulled away from the bone.
I pulled a portion to look at before everyone was home/awake, to see how the first time rib smoking worked out for me. It worked: nice smoke ring.
More cuts, as the fam began arriving.
Nice and juicy.
And did I mention the zucchini gratin? Still bubbling, right out of the oven.
