Hey from Savannah, GA

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I will admit that I am most likely the LEAST knowledgeable noob to grace the annals of this forum.


Yesterday, while at a client's house, I was offered some smoked pulled pork and ribs. They were AWESOME!!!!! So, on my way home, I darkened the entrance of my local Lowe's and purchased the MES 30 and a bag each of apple and cherry wood chips. By 9pm the box smoker was assembled, seasoned, and a single rack of pork ribs was exchanged for some greenbacks..


Which brings me to my first question:


Now what?


Second question:


2-2-1: 2 hours smoke, 2 hours in foil, and the last? smoke too, or just heat? If it is just heat, can I just throw it in the oven for the last 3 hours?


I hope to gain enough knowledge to keep my loved ones out of the hospital.

Thanks for the welcome!!


I am on day 3 of the 5 day course and I just ran my first rack of ribs through its paces. Not bad, but could be better...



First problem encountered when I moved the ribs from the rack in stage 1 to the foil in stage 2. Seems the bones were just falling out..... I dropped 3 bones in the transfer.


Seems my MES30 is running about 5-7 degrees COOLER than what is displayed. Adjustments were made in both time and temp. We'll see in the morning if anyone gets sick... lol
