I like to mop. Last 1/3 of cooking time. Lots don't. I mix my favorite BBQ sauce with some apple juice for a quick mop. Another good one, vinegar, water, chili powder, some dry mustard mixed well. I've even thinnned out teriyaki glaze with water and added apple juice and some worcestershire sauce. Only yer imagination limits ya. :)

I spritz every 30 minutes, 2 parts regular Dr. Pepper 1 part apple cider vinegar.  I put a healthy dry rub on the ribs to start with that contains brown sugar salt and assorted spices.  Never been a mop fan, never sauce them either.  have 5 racks to throw on the smoker this Sunday morning for my son's 15th birthday Hootinany.....  naturally, I will be following Minnesota statute 53-2.7 paragraph 2 which states " an open container or alcoholic beverage must be in hand when performing any kind of cooking outside" lucky me, I have both, and two hands

as a side to this whole topic:  has anyone ever put maple syrup on their ribs?  I have some maple syrup from a friend in WI that kind of got away from him (he might have been sleeping it off) but it is still good.  I am thinking of putting it on as a glaze with say and hour to go meat sized down for the last 2 hours or less

YES I HAVE!!!! It's great, really! A tad sweet, though...might want to add a bit of apple cider vinegar to it, or a tad of BBQ sauce. I've also brushed ribs with peach or apricot jam, mixed with rib rub and a touch of OJ..... drooling-sign-smiley-emoticon.gif

Well, I added a little Dr. pepper (1;1 ratio) and some acv along with some dry rub, reduced it down on heat and basted the rack the last hour of the cook time.  Next time, I will baste them the entire 4-5 hours (I do a 3-2 method, no foil, just smoke, low and slow baby) there was a hint of maple but not enough of a glaze on the ribs.  The rest of the racks were dry rubbed and were a huge hit.  One brother in law who claims to be a foody, said they are better than anything he has had before and he travels a lot and hits a lot BBQ places.  I think he was just being nice, but I am my own harshest critic and I thought they were okay.  sorry, no pictures of the finished product and only on picture of when they hit the grill.....yes, I cracked a beer at 7:15 in the morning, I don't like breaking the law

I smoked a rack last weekend using 3-2-1 method.

I added brown sugar and honey, top and bottom of rack before wrapping in the foil.

Pretty darn good. Especially if you like candy...:grin:

(probably wont try that again)

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
