I forgot to congratulate myself last month on Two Years Being Smoke Free and also Two Years Without Being  Preachy Asshole Against Smoking.

If you want to know, I did the Chantix treatment and worked amazingly well. I had no side effects.

But some smoking was done last Friday:

I love that smoke ring. And I feel I am getting better results since I began to slit the skin under the ribs. Three long cuts seem to do it fine.

And if you read about my fixing of the smoker back in May, I want to let you know it is still working like a champ. I don’t know if the Cast iron pan may have something to do, but it seems that I can control the temperature better.

PS: We are using Jack Daniel’s BBQ sauce. It adds some sweet & tangy without overwhelming the flavor of the smoke and the meat.

Spread the love

  1. Well done Sir. My wife did the hypnotism thing to quit. Coming up on a year now.
    Where do you make the cuts on the ribs? New at the bbq thing

  2. How is the temperature control on the masterbuilt propane smokers? I have a 40″ electric with the cold smoke attachment but I had to replace the controller with a separate PID controller a few years back and now it’s starting to have issues getting up to temp.

    1. I used to leave ribs in a bag with orange juice, but sincerely I did not see any improvement or benefit. I will salt, add granulated garlic like maniac, then the McCormick run and top it with a lot of black ground pepper making a heavy coating. After a couple of hours of smoke, I do the tin foil wrap and I pout about 1/3 of a cup of some fruit juice before closing. This particular set of ribs had pear juice… because they were little boxes were on sale at the supermarket.
