Hello Everyone just wanted to say thanks to all the members that help me after my first smoke disaster. My first smoke last week failed horribly, I used way too much charcoal and way too much wood and ended up with completely burn ribs and sausage, I'm using a ecb and thought the more smoke the better so after that weekend I found this wonderful site and asked lost of questions and got lots of answer and luckily I'm not the type that gets discouraged too easily. Before this weekend I did a few Mods to it ( added grill to charcoal pan and added thermometer) I couldn't finish the mods( more dampers and Big egg gasket) because I'm still waiting for a few parts. So anyway I decided to smoke another rack of ribs, this time I did the minion method with and used a lot less coals, less wood and also bought a smoker box and with being able to tell the temperature better I was very successful. Below are a few pictures the one up top ( which looks juicier) was with barbecue sauce and the one on the bottom was with a dry rub, not jeff's dry rub which I downloaded the other day to help support the site and I cant wait to try just didn't have time to get all the ingredients. Oh yeah and on side note my wife thinks I'm completely nuts for taking pictures of our food but I was so excited that they came out so well for my second smoke and cant wait to try other meats. Thanks again too all that help me with this process and all the tips.
