This site has made me feel way more comfortable about jumping into smoking meats.
I'm in the Seattle area, yes the beautiful damp pacific northwest. Don't let the title throw you off, I'm not worried about smoking in the rain but most likely will be. Just finished a uds build and planning on my first rib cook on Sunday. I used the popular mechanics design found online. It was fun but definitely thought it would be cheaper. Found alot of money saving tips here after the fact. Already looking at an offset smoker\bbq on Craigslist. Like the versatility of them.
Just saying hi and look forward to lots of good eats.
Any pork rib recipe recommendations for a newbie?
