Hey all, I joined this forum back in October with a Brinkmann Upright Electric smoker, which always turned out great fish and poultry, I tried ribs on a cold day in the old bullet and couldn't maintain temp so my old man and I decided to take the plunge and buy a shiny new MES 40! Dad just made a bunch of Chicken: Legs, halves and game hens last night. And today I'm making ribs! I soaked them for a few hours in some unfiltered apple juice which I've never done before, I'm hoping it really sweetened up the meat, and I'm trying out Oak Ridge BBQ's Secret Weapon Rub. I'm going to use the 2 2 1 method and I'm expecting great results! My mouth is alread watering!
