I usually do a decent job with other things , but my spares have been coming out oversmoked(creosote taste) and tough even after spending a long tome in my silver smoker. Yesterday I finally turned out some falling apart tender ribs by using the 3-2-1 method , lowering the chimney to grate level. I got around the creosote by using natural charcoal with some pecan for smoke. Thank again folks all the great advice here is already being put to use in my smoker. They were so good I even had some for breakfast! Ribs for breakfast may sound weird , but it worked for me.
