After reading through the 5-day course and numerous threads on here, I got brave today and started smoking beef ribs for dinner tonight.
I made my own dry rub consisting of brown sugar, black/white/cayenne peppers, garlic, and paprika on top of the mustard smear to keep it on there and placed the ribs on a rack.
Temp @ ~240/245 (although it crept up on me in the 1st hour to 300....didn't stay there long...as soon as I saw it up there, I removed enough charcoal to keep it around the 240 mark. I'd of preferred it to be a little lower, but this isn't the end of the world (hopefully). I started them at 130p. I'm at the 2.5h mark, but my camera decided to die on me....once it's charged, i'll give the updated 3h mark pic. Also been spritzing w/ apple juice @ the hr marks.
This is at the 3hr mark with internal temp between the bones @ ~160*
