So glad football season is here again. All we need is one more reason to fire up the smoker, right? Decided on some baby back ribs as I have not done them in years, I usually go with spares. Rubbed down with a 2/2/1 mixture of DP Dust, Stubbs Rub and Fiesta Rib Rub (I'm trying to use up all my rubs so I can start blending my own again)

Threw them on the smoker at 250 with a mix of hickory and apple

A few hours later they were joined by some ABTs

Rather than going the 2-2-1 method, I opted for a modified 2.5-0.5-1.5 method which seemed to get my ribs done perfectly to my liking, not falling off the bone, but with just a bit of pull.

I feel like that by blending the three rubs, it added a bit of depth and complexity that none had on their own. Just reaffirmed my decision to start blending my own rubs from scratch again.

My Baylor Bears put up a strong showing, the ribs came out nicely and no work on Monday. All in all.....could my Sunday have been any better? I think not.

Those look great Griff! I like my ribs dry as well but everyone else in my family likes them presauced for the glaze....I've also found the 2-2-1 method if you leave them for the entire 2 hours in foil they are just falling apart...I usually pull them a tad early as well.

Griffin, I like your inspired idea of blending rubs. What kind of particular flavor(s) do you like? I could easily see myself gnawing on those bones in front of a Chargers game! :D
Got beer???
