Ok earlier this week for my first smoke ever I went with some chicken quarters. Now for my 2nd smoke I also decided to go with cheap just in case I screw it up somehow and to get me more accustom to my equipment. I found some country spare ribs on sale yesterday so I bought 2 packs. I ended up only rubbing 1.5 of the racks because it ended up being more then I was thinking lol I did 1 pack in a cajun rub with a little Tony C sprinkled in and the 1/2 pack I rubbed on a garlic herb mix for the kiddies. Wrapped them last night and thru them in the fridge.
I found much controversy on the forums about cooking them in a pan or directly on the rack and I decided to go with the easy route and they are in pans. I preheated my MES to 250. In the meantime I prepped my pans and lit my AMNPS. In the MES they go!
I am planning on going 3-2-1 so I will update as I go with some Q-view! Here is what I have so far.
Wrapped and in the fridge they went
Above is the garlic herb rub and below is the cajun/Tony's rub.
Here is what they look like together.
Lighting my AMNPS! (Yeah I live in MN and it is like 12* and lots of snow around.)
Into my MES where the magic happens!
I will edit this and update with more Q-view as I go but this is where I am at so far.
