Ok so first off, hi everyone I'm grebs. first time smoker, long time eater. I love bbq and ive been wanting to try my hand at smoking. I cant even say I have much exp in grilling as I don't do it a whole lot but that's about to change..
after a few weeks of research I pulled the trigger on a gmg db. it was between the bd and a rec tec. deciding factor was I could take the db home and the rec tec I would have had to order After saving a few more pennies.
I seasoned the db and today I tried my hand at a cpl racks of baby backs. The gmg was everything it claimed to be. the ribs turned out great. smoke ring and all. keep in mind not only was this the first time smoking, but also cooking ribs.
I used louisiana grills competition blend pellets, three lil pigs rub. cherry flavored.. pulled the silver skin. rubbed on some yellow mustard and threw on the rub the night before. wrapped them in seran wrap and into the fridge. not sure if doing this over night is a bad thing or not.
anyways I tried the 321 method and it turned out great. smoke them about 5 and a half hours but I think the 2 hours in tin foil was almost too much. .but still fall off the bone good. sweet baby rays honey bbq was the choice for this smoke just because its really the only one my family uses. I did like using apple juice for the moisture. great taste.
I need a better knife, have much to learn, and its freaking awesome
