Not to hijack this thread DDave but what was your sauce you used on these ribs?
Powersmokin: You are fine. As long as you are not cooking with high heat, then always take your time with your meat. If you ever run into a jam, get on the forum & ask questions. Or tinker with your smoker by making small adjustments until things look better to you. Like adjusting your vents or pushing your coals around. Things of that nature. Always wait for about 15 minutes to let your changes take effect & if not then try something different. You will be okay as you are on your way to being a great smoker, as young as you are. And trust me when I tell you this: we all have blown up a smoke or two in our time. That is what makes us the great-advice-giving forum we are today. (And don't get me wrong, I am still learning.)
P.S. Beer makes you fat. Drink shots of tequila. LOL
