Only been smoking for less then a year. Have a cheap water smoker i got as a gift. Not the best but gets the job done. I have read a lot of post on here and combined what I read and gave it a try. I was going to attempt the 2-2-1. I watched youtube on how to trim them up and attempted that. Just bought a general rub and then put them on the smoker. I kept at 250 pretty steady. After the 2 hours I was a little nervous on how they would turn out. Wrapped in foil with some brown sugar and apple juice. I like them sweet so that was the flavor profile I was going for. After another 2 hours and I struggled to get them out of the foil with out falling apart. Was it to much time in the foil? I wanted it to stick a little more. I ended up getting some back on the smoker with a light coat of sauce for a little.
Overall I think they turned out good for my first time. Didnt turn out exactly like I expected but as long as they taste good its a win.
Here are some pics.
