So I bought a smoker for my dad's birthday on the 3rd and we just got it going tonight with some ribs. My question is can we skip the 2-2-1 method and just smoke them once and get it done with? If so how long and how hot? If we get them to the 170ish area will that be ok? Dangerous? Basically I want to know if I will die from this and if so what would be a better plan for the future? Thanks.
