Okay, so I smoked some 3-2-1 ribs this weekend. I set the water pan on the floor of the smoker, wrapped the drip plate in foil, and used unsoaked applewood chips. My goal temp was 225 and I had to set it to 245 to get my thermometer to read near 225. There were times when I checked the temp during the smoke and it would read below 200. Strange.
Anyway, the ribs itself turned out pretty good. I wish they were a little bit more tender and "fall off the bone" but I'd say I'm pretty happy with the results. I think I had a hard time managing the amount of smoke. It seemed like I had to add every half hour. I bet the AMNPS will solve that issue though!
