Hi All: I am new to SMF and have never created a thread. I have been smoking meat for a long time but I am still learning. I have read a lot of comments in forums and have learned a lot in the past few months. But I have wanted to ask questions concerning my own smoking and "Queing".
I do my work on a couple of Big Green Eggs which work quite well. However, I have not perfected the product as of yet. I have real difficulty getting spare ribs to have that nice soft texture when finished. I have been using the 3-2-1 method and getting pretty good results but a lot of ribs come out tough. I don't know if I am not cooking them long enough or too long.
This is the type of stuff I would like to explore with you all out there.
Also, I would like some comments on the best ways to get the Green Eggs fired up. Recently I read in a forum about a method, which I assume is not new, of starting the charcoal by dumping a half chimney of coals on top. Seems to work real well. In the past I did the opposite with putting the coals on the bottom and pouring more charcoal on top. This resulted in taking hours to get down to cooking temp.
I have been messing with que for 20 years or more but still can learn more. I live in Indiana now but in the past we have lived in Michigan and Georgia.
I also would like some tips on how to navigate around the site. For instance I am not sure how to sign up for different forums.
So all the help I can get would be apprecited.
Hope to hear from some of you.
