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?
