Been trying to educate myself as much as I can by reading old threads and articles. Great info buried in this forum.
Father-in-law passed down a digital MES 30" that hadn't been used it a while.
First test tomorrow will be with 3 racks of ribs - 2 baby back, one a larger spare.
I'm going to be using 2 different rubs - one a little more sweet (decent amount of brown sugar), one with a little more heat.
Will have the family (wife & 2 kids) do blind testing to see what everyone prefers.
Looking forward to tasting and testing my way through the learning process for all kinds of meat. Next will be a few pork butts... gotta love pulled pork sammiches!
