First smoke on Mini WSM - Ribs

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

A week ago I built and seasoned my mini WSM. Today here in the D/FW area, since we were iced in anyway, I figured it would be a good day to smoke some baby back ribs. I had some rub I got from Joe's Barbecue in Alvin, TX, a while back, so I tried that. For the heat I used plain old blue-bag charcoal briquettes, and for the smoke I used chunks of hickory. It was cold and windy but the Mini WSM held 225 pretty steady for the 5-hour cook. In the past I have done the 3-2-1 method. But today, since it was so cold and windy, I decided to keep the little smoker closed throughout the cook.

Here's the smoker, cooling down after the finishing the job...


Here's the product after resting a half-hour...


And here's what went to the table. They were fit to eat. Joe's rub worked out well.

Great looking ribs! The mini does a great job in cold weather. As I type it's -16 in my neck of the woods and I wouldn't hesitate firing up the mini and smoking with it. I have two of the mini's and I wouldn't trade them for any other smoker !

Thanks guys! I was really pleased with the mini's first smoke. Like others have observed, it was really efficient on the fuel burn. I can tell it's going to get a lot of use.
