Okay 2nd try, first one crashed on me :cry:

The ribs were dry rubbed with Wild Hog (from Grillstock) then put on the racks. They recommend spraying with apple juice or other flavourings, I didn't as we had no apple juice :oops: . I wanted to keep them as basic as possible (as befits my abilities). I didn't glaze them either as I didn't want to compromise any test of the moisture.
Ribs at 2 hours

Ribs ready to eat, nice and moist.

Would I do anything different........I'd try spritzing with different liquids, maybe try brining and of course various rubs and glazes.

Will they be up to competition standard? Possibly but not in my hands,
Will it get regular use, Yes probably more for chicken, sausages and other foods as I don't get to Costco that often :D
Am I glad I got it? Yes depending on the Euro exchange rate it's around £95
Is it a fun bit of kit? Most certainly :D

The racks are in the dishwasher so I'll let you know how they clean up. Also when I find my gauge I'll measure the thickness of the steel, should anyone want that detail.

What else a nice cup of tea. After a bottle or two of Jeramiah Weed Sour Mash Brew (with a bourbon top ;) ) of course. The racks washed up nice and clean as expected, conveniently all four fitted the bottom rack.

It has bourbon background notes, and whilst loving bourbon I like "long cold drinks" at a bbq especially in this weather (while it lasts) and don't like diluting the flavour too much. :D
