Update: The ribs came out awesome, perfectly cooked, nice smoke ring, meat came off the bone easily with a little pull. I might have overdone the rub, the kids liked the ribs but thought the flavor was a little strong. I used a rub I found at Trader Joe's that has coffee and garlic, kinda heavy on the garlic.
2nd cook: 8lb pork shoulder for pulled pork. Also came out amazing, although I'm not sure if 18hrs at 225° is long but the meat temp was only at 44° 1hr out of the fridge when I put it on, probably should have let it get closer to room temp.
My biggest concern about the grill was that it went through way more pellets than I expected but after speaking with tech support my +/- 2lbs/hr at 225° use is actually in the norm. Don't know where I read it but I was expecting that to be below 1lb/hr and 2lbs at sear temps. They said at 500°+ I will burn 5-6lbs/hr. This thing is going to be pretty expensive to run, I'm going to have to convince the wife to let me keep the Weber gasser for fast grilling.
I'm also going to consider a couple of the mods I saw to insulate better to reduce pellet use.Edited by TruckLoan - 7/13/16 at 6:07pm
