Well, I took delivery on our Yoder YS480. Very excited to try it out, my family is new to smoking so sorry for all the recent threads I've started!
This weekend we plan on doing some St Louis style ribs. It seems to preferred method is the 3-2-1, I tried this in my Masterbuilt and they turned out extremely dry and tough. Now I only spritzed them (brown sugar, apple juice, apple cider vinegar) once when I wrapped them so maybe that's why. But I want to try it again.
I plan on setting my smoker to 180 for the first hour then bring it to 225 with a blended apple/hickory pellet (bought from BBQ store) and doing a 3-2-1 method of smoking. I would be very open to any criticism or ideas. Really hoping to impress my family!
I'm assuming for the first 3 hours to not mess with them or maybe spray them a few times with my mop? Then put apple juice in the tinfoil before I wrap and put the rubs meat side down? Once un-wrapped spray again, after the last hour should I let them sit for an amount of time?
