My name is Garret and I'm from southern California. I thought I would go ahead an add meat smoking to my big list of hobbies even though I know nothing about smoking. Today I just built a Smokey Joe WSM and did a dry rub on a rack of baby back ribs. I used salt, brown sugar, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and dried chili pepper flaked. The ribs will probably sit in that for about two days and add a second salt, chili pepper, and brown sugar rub just before smoking. any tips or tricks you can throw my way on my first smoke will be greatly appreciated.
