I made this yesterday because I was smoking some ribs as a surprise for Alexis and her co-workers for dinner at work. Trevor and I packed the "to-go" boxes and dropped them off at the store just in time for dinner.
I've done posts on ribs several times so I'll just give the basics for my bbq nerd friends.
Ribs: Loin back ribs (what most people call baby backs but technically baby backs are smaller)
Smoke: 2 hickory Mojobrick Bar-B-Cubes
Rub: my version of Wild Willy's Number Onederful and Dead End Rib Rub layered on both ribs
Foil?: Yes, with real butter, brown sugar, hot sauce
Times/Temps: 270f because I was trying to get them done quick. 2 hr 45 min bare, 45 min foiled, 45-60 min bare. I lost track of the time on the second "naked" stage but it was definitely at least 45 minutes and not more than an hour.
Glaze: Blues Hog (they like sweet ribs)
- 3 pounds red bliss potatoes (b sized), quartered
- 3 boiled eggs, diced
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup onion, diced
- 2 Tbsp celery, finely diced
- 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp BBQ rub
- Boil the potatoes until fork tender. Allow to cool.
- Add the eggs to the potatoes in a large bowl.
- Mix the rest of the ingredients together for the dressing. Pour over the potatoes and egg, toss to coat.
|Setting up the Egg for smoking. I put new coal in, the wood, and now putting the used coal back in on top.|

|Then just pull it straight up and off in one piece.|
|Ribs rubbed and going on.|
|Just about ready for foiling.|
|These silicone pinch bowls that my sister gave me rock. One of the most used things in my kitchen.|
|Not everyone likes eggs in their potato salad. I do. Sue me.|
|Taste the dressing for seasoning before mixing into the potatoes. It is easier to adjust at this point.|
|Gratuitous rib shot.|
|Very meaty ribs.|

The ladies hated their food. Just kidding, they loved it.
