New to smoking from England United kingdom

  1. Hi all I have just bought a Bradley original smoker and yes us English folk love smoked ribs too , I have tried two smokes so far on ribs and they have both come out a little tough and can not seem to get the baby backs to pull from the bone, can you wrap the ribs in tin foil and leave them in these Bradley smokers

    Yes, you sure can wrap them and set them back in the Bradley.  The best guideline for fall-off-the-bone-tender BBR's is the 2-2-1 method: 2 hours in smoke at 225-250*, 2 hours in foil at the same cook temps, then 1 hour back in the smoker unwrapped at the same cook temps.  Your patience will be rewarded, and they will fall off the bone!
  3. Hey thanks for the reply , going to try again this weekend need a rib rub recipe as I was given a rub from a guy called Steve in Texas. We have a American girl in our office in London and she brought back the rub for me to try out , the rub was fantastic but like I said the top rack of ribs were bit tough but tasty , the bottom rack were slightly better,, The problem I have encountered is keeping the temp at 225 when the whole smoker is loaded, I had 4 racks ribs smoked for 5 hrs and sprayed them every hour with apple juice , And a 4lb Brisket which I left in there for 7 hours and was tough as old boots, is it best just to smoke one type of meet in these models.

    Welcome to SMF - glad to have you here with us - the issue with the brisket is you should cook it to 165 then foil and take to 195 for slicing or 205 for pulling. Briskets and Butts are notorious for stalling and can sit at the same temp for 30 min to a couple of hours so temp is the way to go

    Welcome aboard!

    2-2-1 for baby backs.  3-2-1 for spare ribs.  Then you can modify to your taste from there.

    Good luck and good smoking.
