First Smoke with Q-vue!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Today is the day. Got my 22.5" WSM and all my goodies over a week ago. Just been waiting to get a day to fire things up.

Smoking a 5 pound pork butt, 3 racks of ribs, and some ABT's.

Got the butt in the smoker around 06:30. Plan to put the ribs in around lunch time, and have everything ready to eat at 6 tonight.

I have been reading numerous post's and getting tips all week. Hope I can give the search button a little rest now. 









More to follow as my day progresses.

The verdict is in, I'm hooked. Great pulled pork, and ABT's much better than propane grill.

Ribs were ok, but I pulled them off to soon. They were not fall off the bone ready, but just a little tuff off the bone. 

Did pretty much like a 2-2-1 method with them, but may need a 3-2-1 next time.

All in all, bellies are full and happy.

Nice first run, all looks delicious.  I have found that 3-2-1 works best for me, I try to keep the temp around 235.
