My name is Crissy and I have lately been interested at trying my hand at smoking meats. I don't know what brand of grill I have but I do know that it is a charcoal grill and believe it is also a smoker. Today I am attempting the 3-2-1 method of smoking my ribs. I watched some videos on YouTube about how to remove the membrane and I lightly coated the ribs in mustard and sprinkled a dry rub on them. I started a small fire with twigs and paper then added 5 or 6 chunks of Mesquite wood. It wasn't doing much at first but then suddenly my screened in back porch was FILLED with smoke! lol. So I added the ribs and did my best to maintain a temperature between 200 and 250 degrees. That part was rather difficult and involved me constantly going outside and adding more chunks of wood. Just a few minutes ago I wrapped the ribs in foil with a couple splashes of Apple Juice and they are now cooking for the 2 hour time.
How does it sound like i'm doing? lol
I have read that smoke does not necessarily penetrate the meat when it is wrapped up in foil so is it alright to use charcoal briquetts for the 2 hours that it is wrapped up?
Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! :D
