grilling before smoking for ribs.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys.

Tomorrow morning i will start smoking ribs and brisket for a party. Im planning on grilling the ribs over very high heat (a large wood fire) then placing the ribs in the smoker for a few hours.

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? Prior experience would be great.

When im done ill post on the results.

My home made smoker that will be doing the work.

Thank you.

Spent almost three days building it. I'm still planing on placing a chimney on top, though thats just to funnel the smoke out from under the porch overhang.

also going to paint it blach high temp (1200 degree grill paint) except for the fire box on the side, the firebox will be orange (2500 degree ultra high temp paint. I will also be adding a warming oven, so to speak, over the fire box, for other slow cooked non smoked foods.


as for the food...

i have done it before gives the ribs a great flavor. I gave them a good sear on both sides and then smoked as usual, i think they were on the grill for a total of 30 mins or less
