Nicely done. I've got a rack thawed in the fridge and a batch of Steven's 'Lemon Brown Sugar' sauce on the stove right now. I hope mine look that good.

Beautiful job on the prep work. I'm sure the finished product tasted as good as it looked. Thanks for sharing.

I let it go for about 30 minutes to thicken it up some. I also added a tablespoon of honey and two teaspoons of Frank's Red Hot to this batch.

Thanks to all for the kind words.

Yes, the ribs were marinated in apple cider and lemon juice.

Murman, how long were they marinated? A few hours or over night? What does this marinating process do for the ribs? I may have to try your marinate process to see what the difference is between the marinated and non-marinated slabs. I've never marinated ribs. I just prep (remove membrane) and trim spares to St Louis style, apply rub, and put them in the smoker.

The ribs and marinade were put in a two gallon food storage bag, then refrigerated for two hours. There are two reasons for the marinade. One is to add flavor, and the other is to tenderize. A win-win! Many of the fruit juices used in marinades, such as lemon and pineapple, contain enzymes that break down proteins, making the meat tender.

You are welcome. I hope it turns out good.
Man those pics are making me hungry! I just sampled a little bit of the flap that was trimmed off the slab and man was it goooood! I can't wait for dinner time.
I just foiled mine. I did it a little early because the CG is running a little hot today.

So Murman, are they as good as they look? :D

Thanks much for the info!! Been smoking ribs for quite a few years and I've never looked into the benefits of marinating them. Mostly because I didn't find a need to do it. :wink: But I'll give it a try. About how much lemon juice do you use? Is the juice from fresh lemons or bottled lemon juice?
