Question from a new guy to smokers.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I got a char broil propane smoker, it is the big easy tru infrared vertical for Christmas and yesterday tried my first time on baby back ribs using a guide I read on smoking meat the complete how to.

So first I believe this was a guide for smokers using charcoal or wood because I could not keep my temp. below 325 degrees and the ribs turned out a little on the over done side. So my question is, how do I control the heat ? do I just compensate for the higher heat by smoking a little less time?

All help is appreciated, thank you in advance.

I went and looked at the specs for that smoker and they say it should go down to 200 degrees. I would call their customer service and see whats going on.

I like Babybacks cooked @ 350*F for about three hours. I mop/spritz after an hour and again after two hours. At two an a half I sauce.

But I agree, a smoker should be able to go low n slow.

I called customer service and they said ,open the lid to let heat out. practice until you get the right amount of heat.

Success, today I smoked a 6 pound pork picnic roast. smoked it on the bottom rack where the heat is not as high, used apple wood chips in the smoker pan and 3.5 hours later a perfectly done roast.:icon_biggrin:

After reading on the forums I installed a needle valve and that cured my problem with to much heat.
