After laying on my back in the horsepiddle for a week, I’m back on the smoker.

After waiting for a break in the weather to try it out I decided to keep it in the shop year round. I installed a range hood directly above the smoker and vented it through the wall. This way I can smoke and not have to depend on the weather.

Country ribs were my first smoke. I made the mistake of either using TQ or to much TQ it was a surprise to have a mouth full of great tasting tender ham. I have to do more reading before the next go around. This photo is after one hour @ 260 deg.

This photo is after three hours @ 260 deg. At this point I mopped on the bbq sauce and bumped up the temp. to 300 deg for 30 minutes.

Good idea for the range hood.i have a few exhaust fans set up in my garage with a vent to the outside.I think their a must have when you smoke indoors! As for the ribs, did you brine them? or just use TQ in the rub? For country ribs i don't think you really need to cure them,they have plenty of fat on them to keep them moist.Or is there some other reason for the TQ?

The ribs look great from here too - I love country ribs

 

One thing you might want to check on though is the use of the smoker in your garage. I checked with my insurance agent and my house would not be covered in the event of a fire under your setup.  There was some clause in there would void my insurance.  I have an electric SmokinTex and thought it would be easy to just keep in the garage with a vent and my insurance guy killed it right away.

I have State Farm and my agent said as long as I don't burn my house down on purpose I was covered.

Convinced me, smoking inside not a good idea . The hood worked ok for the LP and small chip box but not the fire box. th_dunno-1[1].gif:
