    Well I'm finally done cleaning up and all from our first smoked dinner. Had spare ribs and Dutch's Wicked Baked Beans. Made my own sauce also. All turned out well. Here is some qview.

    Overnight would be great.....as they might still be warm. I should have known better than to look at your Q view before bed.....now I need to head to the fridge for a snack. Good job.

    What method and what did you think about the ribs?
    Not gonna bother asking how you liked Dutch's beans because who doesn't?

    For smoking I used the Old Smokey Electric smoker. It seemed to work fine. Next time I will line the drip pan with foil! They say not to use water because it's a sealed unit. The stuff in the drip pan really burned in and I wonder if that had an effect on smoke quality. I don't think I put enough wood chips in, maybe a little more next time. Looking at this forum I see the OSE is quite unusual to other smokers. No door for the wood chips, sealed, etc. It has a flat lid and the juices evaporate, go to the top and then baste the meat as it cooks. I think I may pull them next time and put them on the grill for a few minutes. We served the sauce at the table. I used a rub I found at another rib site. I liked it. Made a sauce from another site. Rub was called "Name" Memphis Dust and the sauce was KC Rib Sauce. My wife thought the beans were a bit too sweet. That may be because the Bush's beans already had brown sugar in them. I think they were the home style.

    I'm sorry, but I can't ship any because there are none left. I guess that answers the other question, "What did you think about the ribs?".

    I have already learned lots here. I can't thank you enough.

    Thanks everyone. My wife's comment was "You can do this again tomorrow." Of course I did all the cooking. I even made salads to go along with the ribs and beans. I don't know how much of a part that played in that decision. [​IMG]
