    mmm, Stopped by the butchers today and picked up 4 racks..
    Plan on slow cooking, roughly 3-4 hours this Sunday, with just a tad bit of Hickory (wife not a big fan "Smoked" food, so I aim for just a hint of it)Rub
    5 tablespoons, plus 1 teaspoon paprika
    2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
    1 tablespoon, plus 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
    2 teaspoons chipotle powder
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 teaspoons mustard powder

    I use indirect cooking, keeping my temp between 230 and 250.. I also Lay a strip a bacon across the top of each rack and let all the bacon goodness seep down on the ribs as they cook

    I put Apple Cider in a spray bottle and Spritz em down around every 20 minutes.
    I think I may change it up this time and use this Mop Sauce for a bit of added Flavor:

    2 cups apple cider
    3/4 cup cider vinegar
    1/2 cup bourbon, rum, or orange juice
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon of salt

    After the Ribs have cooked 2-2.5 hours, I take em off, wrap in Foil and fill the foil packs with a Finishing Liquid. I then return them to the grill for 1 more hour...

    Finishing Liquid
    1 cup apple cider
    2 tablespoons cider vinegar
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    3 cloves garlic chopped

    While those are finishing up, I make up a batch of the Wife's Fav BBQ Sauce. Its a Ketchup/7-up based sauce and really compliments the ribs..
    I serve the sauce on the side so you can dip or cover to your liking.....


    I'm a bit stuck on what Sides I want with it..
    Probably grill up some carrots (very tasty), but Could use some suggestions... May try some form of a veggie medley, or you tell me....

    Tried a different way to do my Veggies

    Made up Foil packs with
    Mushrooms
    Baby Red taters
    Baby Gold taters
    Corn on the Cob
    Chopped Onion
    Carrots

    They were coated with a mixture of:
    1/4 cup Melted Butter
    2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
    1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
    1/4 teaspoon Black pepper
    Savory Salt Free

    Foil up and put directly over coals for around 35 minutes...
    LOVED EM...

    Wife also had me directly grill some carrots coated with Olive oil and Savory Salt Free... Wife and kids gobbled those down so fast I didn't even get to taste one... They don't even taste much like a carrot cooking them this way btw...

    It's real simple. Just get a deep dish and put the ribs in and cover them with mouintain dew. Let them set at least over night, the longer they sit the sweeter they will be. Then you can put any dry rub on them you want, but I would try to stick with a sweet one with brown sugar. Then just slow cook them bad boys.
