2nd test drive on the Joe

Recommended Posts

So today was my second go at Mr. Joe. I decide to try St. Louis style ribs. I probably should have seasoned them for 24 Hours, but who has the time lol. So this time I put charcoal on both sides and also used both deflector plates. Yes I used aluminum foil on them again because by the time I read the other thread warning me about the aluminum foil, I had already started the cook. I got the Joe up to temp as I seasoned the ribs and by the time I went outside it was sitting at about 300deg. I had the bottom and top open. I closed both about half way and waited a bit. The temp didn't really change so I opened the lid and let some heat out. I then closed both top and bottom to about 3/4 and put the ribs on the grill. I used a drip pan underneath with water. The cook started at about 11:30 am and I pulled the ribs out at about 6pm. About 4 hours into the cook I drizzled some of my cousin's harvested honey on the bottom side and spread it. Yes, my cousin harvests real honey from real Bees in Europe and actually does pretty well just on doing that. Whenever I travel there I stock up on honey and obviously " Fire Water". I do have to say that these were probably the best ribs I have ever cooked. The Joe kept 250Deg on the thermometer for about 5 hours fluctuating no more than maybe 5 degrees. Towards the end I tented the ribs for a bit and that was it. I am extremely happy with the cook, and by the thumbs up from my wife and son. I think they were happy also. Some salad, sweet potato, Avocado, and my favorite Beer. Please see the pics and comment. I am up for all suggestions.

That is very cool that you can get honey like that.  Where does your cousin harvest?

When you put the honey on the bottom, do you finish the cook with the top side down?
