Thanks. I'll post pictures, just cause, tomorrow if this thread manages to not get locked before then.

Now off to start tonight's ribs! Finally got a decent rib rack...
I love a nice firm rack.

Looks amazing...makes me real happy that I've got a big hunk of the stuff in my fridge, just waiting for me to get home.

I always done fat side up with no problems. Maybe I'll try facing it down instead...

Got it in a "Bobby Flay" style squeeze bottle, ready for next time.

I'm not a big fan of smoked beers, but I wonder if a smoked porter would be a good match? Or would it be a bit overwhelming? Hmnn...
Glad you like it. Ya gotta shake it before squirting to get the cayenne & chipotle spices into solution. The heat & vinegar make the sandwich IMHO. Lots of folks are turned off by vinegar, but the ones that try it come back for more.

Smoked porter would be a good last beer of the meal for me.

I forgot to mention I whipped up some of your sauce yesterday - although, in haste, I doubled the Chipolte. Its very addictive stuff!

Sweet! I bet that kicked in the afterburner about 10 seconds after your first bite!! I love the delayed heat in Chipotle peppers.
