Smoking Ribs Part 2

These first two pictures are of the ribs at the 3 hour point. They were smoked at 240 degrees F with hickory smoke. They had a rub put on them as well.

They were then put back in the smoker wrapped in foil and sprayed with apple cider vinegar for 2 hours when they were taken back out and smoked for another half hour (it was supposed to be an hour but they were already so tender that I only did them a half hour).
Here you go. This is the ribs when done.
 These were without a doubt the best ribs we had ever eaten. The baked potatoes, however, did not get done even after 2 1/2 hours in the smoker and I had to finish them in the oven. We had turnips with them and sourdough bread. 
The sourdough bread didn't rise much and I mistakenly thought it wouldn't when I put it in the little oven. Should have put it in the big oven because it rose up right to the top and hit the top burner and I had to snatch it out and put it in the big oven. It also could have used a pan of water in the oven with it as the crust was really crisp but the sourdough favor was wonderful. 

I am so full!

  5. Sounds fantastic! Now you'll be wanting to smoke some chicken, some quail, some duck, some ham, some sausage...
    I wonder why the potatoes didn't cook so well. Perhaps they need a higher temperature?

  6. I don't know Mark, I think they might have gotten done if I had put them in the whole 6 hours but it never occurred to me that they would need that long.
    I have several different meats waiting in the freezer already for me to try in the smoker.
