Smoke day Sunday with Q-View

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

And a good Sunday Morning from  Deutschland! Its a great day to smoke some meat, but then again, what day isn't? I will be smoking a rack of spare ribs this morning, rubbed it down with my own pork rub. Going to be using the 3-2-1 method, coating it with butter and brown sugar when its wrapped. I am smoking these fine slabs of meat in my El Cheap-o Char Broil vertical smoker that I have modified.

Before this smoke the mods I have used are:

- Higher quality in-door thermometer

- Grill wok as fire pan

- Sandbox sand in water pan

With these mods I managed to smoke some great Q, but I noticed I was losing a lot of smoke from around the doors so I just added some of the green egg felt seal last week, this is the first smoke since. I loaded up the fire box as normal, went out to check and I was pegged out on the thermometer over 475* WHAT A DIFFERENCE! 

Currently waiting on my temps to drop down so I can throw the ribs on, here they are patiently waiting. 


More pictures to come in 3 hours or so

So here we are after 3 hours. I can't tell you enough how big of a difference that felt made. Usually I have to tend to my coals every hour or so to keep a steady temp of 250-300, I have not touched it until just now, temp was still at about 240 so I threw a couple coals on before putting the ribs back in wrapped in foil.

Sure does look good. Glad to see your mods are working for you. Controling the temp is the key to great Q.

Happy smoken.
