1st smoke on MES

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Decided first smoke would be 2 racks if St. Louis style spare. Prepped them and they have been in the MES with apple and pecan chips for almost 3 hrs. Plan on wrapping for a couple and then saucing one rack and more rub on the other for the last shift. I have the 30 so had to cut the racks. Some pics up to now...

What did you put in with them? I added a little apple juice and probably only gonna let them cook for an hour..then sauce them and let them cook for 30 mins or so.

Final meal... Did one rack with sauce, one just rub. Rub wins... Did 3-2-1 at 230. Also coal fired sweet potatoes and beans on the pit smoker, and husk grilled corn on gas grill with creole butter...
