Baby back ribs

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
First smoke of my new Brinkman SNP with mods. Wife and I came across a vendor called Garlic Gourmay at the Evergreen State Fair yesterday. Picked up some interesting tasting seasonings (Killer Cajun & Jamican Jerk). So I rubbed a slab of ribs down with the Killer Cajun and let them sit in the fridge overnight.

Smoke time: 6h 45m
Avg chamber temp: 200F
Rib temp at pull: 163F (wrapped in foil and let sit for 15m)
Wood: Mesquite then apple

At the flip & almost done. Threw the fatty on a bit late so it is still going. :

Done and cut up. Family got a few pieces before I snapped the pics.:

Family loved them. The Killer Cajun seasoning is a bit spicy for my taste.

Next up: Smoked turkey.

Ribs look wonderful, but please explain to me what I am seeing. Are those pieces of wood on wire?

Yes those are small pieces of mesquite wood on the wire. I drill holes through small chunks of wood to hold the thermometer probes off the wires. I am still trying to even out the chamber temps. Getting about a 10 degree diff from mid-chamber to stack end.

Hmmm. not a bad idea. Does it seem to work well for you?

And I can't tell from the pic, do you have tuning plates in there?

Seems to work fine so far.

No tuning plates yet. Flipped the drip tray and raised to the top position. Need to put in a damper(?) and move the stack down to move heat better.

great pics i have 2 snp's - i'd add(foil wrapped left end ) tuning plate, a water pan, & a foil baffle- see my mods- gets 225-210 across the pit- 230 on the warm rack... just some help from another snp owner- btw- w/ the water pan expect to use twice the fuel but consistent heat throughout the pit- here's pics.
btw- i have the 2 pits set up in 2 totally different ways- but same temps w/ the baffle & water pan.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

corks on therm

I like the way you put you therm thru the corks and use them to keep them up off the grill
Good luck and Good Smoking

Great looking ribs...PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif What did you used as a rub or BBQ sauce.

I use a piece of 2x4 about 2" wide with a hole drilled in it to keep the probe off the grates..
Any wood should work fine.. I leave the end of the probe exposed so the heat picked up or insulated by the wood does not effect the true reading.
