Newb Check-In

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi everybody!  My name is Thom and I live in Pflugerville, Texas (suburb of Austin).  I have absolutely ZERO history of smoking anything, been a bbq'er my entire life.  I have a good friend who smokes regularly with a Masterbuilt electric unit so I picked one up from Sams today.  Got her fired up right now doing the pre burn-in procedure, with some dry-rubbed babybacks and spareribs in the fridge waiting on the burn-in to complete.  I plan on following the 3-2-1 cooking procedure.

Welcome to the SMF Family...The Spare Ribs and Baby Backs cook at slightly different rates...Put the Spares in then 1 hour later add the BB and complete the Smoke as prescribed by 3-2-1, they will be done together...JJ

X2 Start with 2-2-1 with the baby backs and 3-2-1 on the spares.  After that you can modify the method to your preference.


More importantly, welcome aboard, Thom!


Good luck and good smoking.

Roger that fellas!  I'll pull those baby's early and foil them up.  I didn't check back in soon enough on these replies and started them all together.  Not a problem really, we'll just be eating bbr's as an appetizer!
