I picked up my new Smokin-It #3D on a trip back home last weekend, got it seasoned (twice) during the week in preparation of a couple of planned smokes this weekend. First smoke ever on my #3D is 3 racks of St. Louis Spare Ribs (picked up for $1.99/lb at Costco) and a huge package of Country Style Ribs from the pork shoulder (picked up for $2.69/lb at Costco). I got them rubbed down and stacked on racks:
Foiled the smoker box lid and floor of the smoker:
And loaded up the SLRibs and CSRs, set the temp at 230* with a 5 oz hunk of hickory, got the timer set for 3 hours when I'm going to pull the CSRs and foil them for a couple hours...leaving the SL Ribs to continue cooking. I'm going to try the no-foil method for the SL Ribs this time (first time for that as well). And here we go:
The smoker hasn't even started this morning yet, and I already smell all smokey from the build-up on the walls of the smoker...it's a good day already!
