Chicago Condo & Electric Smoker

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Jumping in today w/Smoke Hollow electric. Experimenting w/rack of baby back ribs and a chicken. About $25 worth of meat so I don't cry too much if there's a catastrophe. Am I looking at about 6 hours?

welcome1.gif to SMF!!! We're happy you found us! You've come to the right place, we have over 50,000 members who just love to share their experience and over 1,000,000 posts describing it! Yea that’s right over 1,000,000!

The search bar at the top can be your best friend when you are trying to find answers to your questions but you can still ask too if you want!

We have an Articles section that is full of great information about smoking to include a lot of recipes and instructionals. Check it out there is a lot to learn in there!

Would you do us a favor and add your location to your profile, it helps others to know where you are when they offer advice, Thanks!

You might want to check out Jeff's Free 5 day E-Course, it will teach you all the basics plus a whole lot more!

You're looking at about 5 hours on the ribs, try the 2-2-1 method, it's a tried and true method that is very popular!
The chicken will be about 2-3 hours but you really need to take it to an internal temp (IT) of 165* in the breast and 175* in the thigh. It's really hard to gauge chicken just by time. Not enough and it's still raw, too much and it can be dried out, that's why checking IT is so important!

Embeded photos are fine, Kat was just letting you know about offsite links not being allowed, she wasn't saying you did post one. Sorry for the confusion!
