    Old kitchen counter top. It was a good "use what we got" project

    K got a question. Back ribs going with a 2-2-1 method but running temp generally around 225-230. With a few spike or dips either way 10-15 degrees. Should I extend any of the steps or just just 2-2-then toothpick?

    2-2-1 just a guideline as you probably know....when they be ready they be ready. So, yeah..toothpick or bend test, your preference. Or, never mind the foiling at all and just rock them as is till done. They look real good so far for your first run in figuring out temp control. I often don't foil
  9. Hello.  Gotta agree with the other members.  It ain't about pretty it's about results!  I LOVE it!  Probably plenty of folks who spent 10 times the money on their pretty smoker and they can't achieve those results.  Holding temp well and some GREAT looking ribs.  What else could you ask for?  Great job on the smoker and the ribs.  Keep Smokin!

    Man I would love to gnaw on some of those and have beer with you. You get my vote for ingenuity and creativity. I gotta add that is the ultimate rat rod of all smokers right there!

    The only problem I see is.... Doesn't look like you have enough firewood (1st pic, background)
