Hi All Well I'm finally getting around to smoke some beef ribs. Picked up a package of Angus Short ribs at RD..Trying to smoke them on my converted E Smoker, having a very hard time with keeping temps down. I have to leave the top half open to get temps in the 250-275 range, once it gets covered the temps go up real fast Checked my terms before in boiling water they were all right on. I took some pics of the ribs before posting, but they weren't good enough to post, hopefully the finished ribs will be good to post?
Same problem I had last time smoking a chicken. This time I added some vents/dampers, only used a 1/2 Weber chimney, made a circle, put 3-4 Kingsford Blue to get things started. Closed or open with the vents/dampers still the temps went up real fast.
Don't know what else to do?? Maybe next time try the snake method?. Use lest charcoal.
Well after 2 1/2 hrs and with the top just closed temps are holding 261, me thinks the it is coals are dying down?
Any thoughts/idea's with the temp problems that I am facing.
Ribs are at 171* after 2 1/2 hrs.
Here is a link to what my E conversion looks like. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/1...n-this-be-done
PS I didn't want to fire up my COS just for 1 rack of beef ribs.
