  1. I initially started a thread HERE  and never got around to it last weekend but was determined this weekend to smoke some ribs. I only did one rack in case I screwed it up somehow.

    Well it was more of a time consuming process that I thought. I had to constantly keep stoking it to keep the temp up, I never got above 200 but I did the 2-2-1 method on it then finished it off on the grill for about 20 mins on high to get a crisp to it.

    to be honest, i thought I was in over my head but the true test was when I took my first bite and fell into instant heaven with it. They were AMAZING!!! I didn't even need bbq sauce for them, wow!!!

    Here they are getting ready to go on the grill, just used some Famous Dave's BBQ Rib dry rub.

    Learned a lot on this first smoke, some ways to make things better (more holes into the pan for ventilation), etc. Next time I plan on smoking more items at once to get more out of it.

    I'm hooked!

    Way to go Rascus[​IMG]  Keep on practicing,like Rod said,start with the less expensive meats, experiment,learn your smoker and most of all...LEARN PATICENCE[​IMG]  Good Que doesn't just show up on the grate.You gotta let it do it's thing. Once you learn your sweet spots,you'll be off in a flash.

    Practice over and over, and soon you'll be doing Briskets[​IMG]

  5. Thanks oldschool! I was going to try and attempt a brisket for a BBQ i plan on having at my house in a few weeks. Not sure if I'm fully ready for that. Think I'm going to try some chicken next.

    How much wood chips does one use during a process? I think I went through half a bag of them.
