Beginner from KY.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone.  Beginner from KY smoking on a 18" Weber Smokey Mountain.  Making some apple smoked spare ribs for the family dinner later tonight.  I've attached some pics!

Used some Private Selection Texas Barbecue Rub today.  First time trying a purchased rub, usually follow recipes online.


Put them on about an hour ago!  Going to spray with apple juice after the 2nd hour every 45 minutes until completion.


Currently running at 253F degrees, trying to get it around 225, want these bad boys to slow cook for about 5 hours.  I'll be transporting these about 30 minutes away when complete.  I am thinking about wrapping in tin foil then putting in a cooler, any suggestions?

Welcome to the board! When you transport them, keep the cooler out of reach of the driver or else you could get a ticket for Open Ribs.

Agree with your plan, try wrapping with a couple towels after foiling, should keep them plenty warm. Next time try 3-2-1 method on your ribs, it's our go to method.welcome1.gif

For some reason I forgot all about the 3-2-1 method.  Going for a 3-1-1 method due to time constraints!

Transporting to the family dinner, I'll try to get some pics there too!
