Back to the basics

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Lately I have been doing a lot on my stick burner, trying to chase the elusive post oak brisket that is so popular these days. But today I decided to go back to where it all started - spare ribs on the 18.5" Weber kettle. I haven't smoke anything in the Weber in probably a year but it was funny I immediately fell back into the rhythm of setting it up and fine tuning the air intake. Today made me realize that sometimes I tend to over complicate the whole smoking thing and it felt good to get back to the basics. More Q-view to follow when they are done!

Thanks hardcookin! Definitely fun to try new things but simple is better sometimes. Here we are 2 1/2 hrs into it and it's been steady at 255 for the entire time.

Probably got another 2 hrs to go

Looks great!

My Weber kettle is my go-to grill. I cook on it 3-4 times a week when the weather is nice. Once you get proficient with them, there's not much you can't do with them..

I agree pit 4 brains, they are awesome. Lately I have been using my propane grill for cooking steaks and salmon and what not during the week. But I'm in south Texas and this time of year I try to minimize my time out in the sun!

Can't beat the old stand by, Weber kettle.


I even had one that had a BBQ Guru set up on it.
