First Cook

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to say thank you to everyone on this forum for contributing to a successful first cook. Spent a lot of time here gathering knowledge and advise before attempting my first smoke and I wanted to let you know it was time well spent. Did 2 "yard birds" and a mess a ribs ..... family couldn't stop raving about how good they were. The birds were brined for about 8 hours and basted with apple juice every hour once they were in the cooker. 3-2-1 method was fantastic for the ribs (although I did cut the time down a bit as they were baby backs). Everything done on my GOSM with a hickory smoke at 225-250 (see attached photos). Thanks again everyone .....

Re: First Cook

Hiya, Ron!

Welcome aboard! Always nice to have a lurker come forward with a success story like yours! It is obvious that I do not have to include a "schpeel" about the forum. You seem to already have made excellent use!

Got to get a paper towel and wipe off the monitor! Man those pics are nice!

Hang out with us and please share more of your successes as well as your flops! I am sure now that you are out in the open that you will rapidly make friends and become a part of the family!
