Hello from Fort Collins, CO

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi -

Just found this site while surfing for info on Rendezvous rib seasoning. I grew up in Memphis so I've got an appreciation for eating good ribs from the Rendezvous and Corky's. Unfortunately you can't get food like that in Fort Collins, Colorado. Closest thing is to make it yourself.

Just picked up one of the new model Masterbuilt smokers from Sam's last weekend. Got it conditioned and ready to go. I'm gonna do 6 or 8 slabs of baby backs tomorrow. I should probably classify myself as "still learning". I've had pretty good success with baby backs and pork loins over the years with my old Brinkman electric and then my Brinkman propane. Haven't done much the past few years since the Brinkman propane wouldn't stay lit at low heat (too windy on days I picked to use it!).

I'll head over to the Masterbuilt section now...

Thanks to all for the great responses! I ended up smoking 4 slabs on Saturday using Corky's dry rub and cherry wood chips. Left 'em in for just over 4 hours at 225F. All in all everyone was very happy with the results, so I guess my new Masterbuilt is off to a good start!

Guess it's time to stock up on baby back slabs when they're on sale so I can start experimenting...

Take care! Kevin
