2nd time || Babyback Ribs || Weber Kettle || Oklahoma N00b

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

First go around at smoking ribs last weekend I learned a lot about my Weber Kettle and intend to put that knowledge to use today with my second try at smoking some loin back ribs.

 

Last Saturday when cooking the ribs I used a foil pan under the meat as a drip pan and also filled it with hot water to use as a heat sink.

 

I was using the snake or ring of fire method with the charcoal and used way to few briquettes in the ring.  The ring was 2x1 halfway around with only 8 or so to start the fuse.

 

The water in the pan kept the temp stable but with me being a n00b and the small amount of charcoal in the ring even with the vents wide open it took me about 2 hours to get the temp up to 225.

 

It's definitely a learning process!

 

Here's a shot of the rubbed up ribs:

 

 

Hope to get them on in a few hours.  Thanks for lookin!

Here we go!



Gonna try to stay between 225-275. Ideally on the low end but still learning the Kettle's fluctuations so I'm leaving leeway.

Thanks guys!

I didn't foil last week so I figured I'd experiment with that and see what Mrs. Carbine's preference is.





These look better than last weeks ribs, pretty excited to see the final product. grilling_smilie.gif
