Just starting out and have a few ???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Well Ive been working all winter long on welding up a smoker. Its made out of a 225 gallon boiler. It has a 100 lb propane bottle welded perpendicular along the back which is used for the smoke box. It rides on a trailer and is looking pretty good. I have been experimenting all spring long and have been trying several different meats and techniques. If I can figure out how to post a pic I would love for you all to check it out. But anyways I have went a step further and enetred a local rib contest in 3 weeks. Getting kind of nervous. One quick question I have about smoking ribs is do any of you guys wrap your ribs in foil after a few hours to help speed the cooking and keep them tender? I have read of different techniques and was just curious to wjat you do. I have 3 weeks to practice and would love to hear from anyone and everyone. Thanks in advance.

Welcome! You have to get those pictures put up! There is a practice picture forum so you can make your attempts there. 3-2-1, definitely practice it though!

Welcome Schultzy -

I always wrap after about 2-3 hours or so, keep em moist and tender. Pull them out for the last hour and get them basted and firmed up.
