Ribs… part II

We spent Friday evening preparing our 6 slabs of ribs for the contest. Trimming and rubbing them down with our special blend of spices. Saturday morning started at 6:30am, cold and windy, very unusual for September in Georgia. We lit our fire at 6:45am and started setting up our tents and chairs. Buy 7am our smoker was at 225 degrees and ready for the meat. We placed out ribs on the racks and closed the lid hoping for perfection in about 4 hours.

Unfortunately it wast meant to be. We came in 10th in the rib cook off this weekend. I can only assume that the ribs that beat us were out of this world because our ribs were fantastic. Tender, juicy, sweet, and a little spicy. I’m not sure what else we could have done but rest assured we will continue to practice until we can win a contest, or get sick of eating ribs.

I said the other day that I would post the recipe if we lost so check below for that, and I am also posting the recipe for the jalapeno poppers that we made up to snack on as well. If you make these be careful, they were pretty hot wow were the good.
