I finally finished my mods to my cbss and got back to smokin. I'll start another post to show what i did in case it can help someone.
I finished my mods and seasoned it a couple of Saturdays ago and was going to smoke some ribs on Sunday. I thought it was going to be a pretty straight forward smoke but was I wrong.
I started the charcoal and had the smoker warming up with the intake fully open when work called. By the time I got finished with them, about half of my charcoal was gone. Ok no biggie I have enough charcoal so 3-2-1 method here I come. Two hours into the smoke I get another call from work and realize I am going to have to go in to fix the problem. I go ahead and foil the ribs early and add, what I thought was enough, charcoal to finish the smoke. My mom agrees to watch it for me and I instruct her to open the intake if the temps start to drop. Off to work I head and two later I get a call from her telling me its stating to drop. Well I make it home an hour later and the temps were down to about 150 so I restoked the fire, remove the foil and started making the sauce. I finally finished about 10 pm. and the ribs actually turned out pretty good. With the temps dropping I did not want to take the chance of anyone getting sick so just me and my mom had them although I felt the extra time foiled cooked them good enough. Here's 2 pics I took with my Lens Baby lens on my camera.
The pics didn't turn out like I wanted so just think of it as the distorted veiw we get from the withdrawels of going too long without good Q.
