Smokin' Baby-Backs

Wow,  it's been over a month since my last entry and we have some catching up to do.  I removed the last of the summer plants this last weekend and planted some cool-season cabbage, spinach and swiss chard.  More on that later, but I wanted to post some pics of a recent rib session before the weather cooled off for good.  Hickory-smoked Baby-Back ribs!

I set up the Weber for indirect grilling and soaked some large chunks of hickory in water for a few hours. After removing the silver skin membrane, I let the ribs marinate with the dry rub for a couple of hours.

Next, into the rack over a drip pan, and add the hickory.  As the ribs cook, I keep the mop handy.

When the meat starts to pull away from the bone, it's time.

Is summer really over?
