Lisa & Jim Koca, the Escapees HOP Director (her) and SMART Weigh Advisor (him) arrived at the park here in Livingston. I immediately invited them for some smoked baby back ribs. I also invited Wayne & Beth Roberts, retired Escapade Directors. I have 4 slabs of baby back ribs that I’m gonna try 3 different rubs/cooking procedures. Yes, I needed guinea pigs. Mark might even show up for a test bite.
I got 1 hot rub rack, 2 normal rub (what ever normal is) and 1 with BBQ sauce. Last time I smoked them for 3 hrs, then two hrs in foil (no smoke) then the last hour out of foil and smoking all at 225 degrees. This time was different.
AND the results were……………….so so. Mark and I decided that the rub was right on this time but I had lost the fall off the bone texture. The other testers all agreed that they were delicious. Hey, when the ribs are free you have to say something nice. Mark & I are going for perfection or damn close to it.
Jim is doing everything for her to speed up her recovery time of about 5-6 months. Hey, I wonder how the bathing part goes %&^*(!@)&?>!!!!!
So tomorrow (Fri) I start getting ready for more smoking on Saturday then to Mark’s to try some of his smoking and more of mine.
