first three racks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My brother and I just got the bug and now have our first smoker. We are eager to begin the quest for perfect pork. We have officially kicked off our smoking journey on the holiest of all cook out days the fourth of July, with three racks of pork ribs. we are starting out with a vertical propane fired smoker (just to get our feet wet) using hardwood charcoal and lump hickory. 220 degrees dry rub only until the last hour. then moped on the Sonny Ray's at 15 min. intervals. They turned out well for a first attempet but we still have a lot of smoking to do.

Tyler - welcome to the obsession... you (and your brother) will soon buy stuff to tweak out your smoker, books, other cooking accessories... it's all good! Good to see you on the SMF... lots to be learned here, lots of good people.

Any report on the 3 racks of ribs yet?

Welcome to the SMF, looks like you're not wasting any time this summer! Next smoke, try some Q View.

Did I read that right? You mopped every 15 minutes? I'd probably advise you to not open the cooking chamber that often.

I sometimes relate BBQ smoking to catfishing. Sometimes the best and only thing to do is absolutely nothing at all. Just let it cook and quit fiddling with it so much.

Seeing that you had good results...keep it up.

does anyone know anything about using coke on the meat while smoking, also what is the easiest way to remove the membrane from the back of ribs?
