A few days ago I made my first attempt and dove in. Picked up a rack from the local Winn Dixie, went home, built my fire and when at the desired temp, I put them on. They were St Louis and I went with 3-2-1 method. Was honestly my first time smoking anything and I was definitely satisfied with the end product. The picture of the temp shows 250. I was able to get it down to about 230 and held consistently.
