I posted this on another forum, "thesmokering" but I thought I'd share with some here incase there are those who don't frequent that forum... I guess I'll call this the 4-8 method... Last night I had a craving and at 8 pm I threw some slabs of Spares on the grill... For some supid reason I figure on them being done about midnight... Well, midnight comes along and the ribs are nowhere being close to done and I'm fading fast. So I wrap them in foil and stick them in the convection oven at 250 thinking I'll take them off in a few hours... Yea right...! Well, come 8 am I awake with a start and immediately envision some charred hunks of coal in the oven... Funny, I don't smell anything and I rush to the oven, take out the foil packs and unwrap them to find the moistest most tenderest Spares I've ever had... They literally dripped off of the bone.... Only thing I wish I could have done different is to put some BBQ sauce on them earlier and let that carmalize but I did do that later... Just for the record I started the fire with some lump coal and maintained with maple logs. So, ineffect it was a wood fired cook... I've never been a fan of Spares but I think I'm going to play with this and come up with something... My grandson said the meat was awesome but still pink... Pink, it had a awesome smoke ring and I explainded that to him... _________________ Hair today, gone tomorrow... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
