Starting off on the kettle at...

    Good afternoon all. I just picked up a WSM 18". Woo-Hoo! I am already defrosting some gorgeous St Louis ribs that will be my very first cook on my new toy. I never cooked on a WSM before, but have been watching some videos to get some pointers on what to do. Any tips that anyone can give me...

    Hello all, been busy and haven't posted in a while. Did a simple rack of Spare Ribs. They came out very well. I've been doing a few things a little differently lately. Cooking at higher temps for less time. This happened accidentally one day when I was running late and had to have them done...

    Pit Barrel Cooker Thoughts......

    After watching many YouTube videos using the PBC ive already been improvising some the suggested techniques on how to smoke Spare Ribs. Many of the videos and my 3 cooks as a rookie have created results where the ribs are just too dang dark on the bark and while tender enough, a tad bit over...

    Memphis Style Pork Belly Ribs

    Here is my take on Memphis "dry" ribs, one of my favorites because the flavor of the rub and the meat stand on it's own. It's not that I don't like sauce it's just that I think sauce has its place, like served at the table.... unless some one wants a KC style rib with a sweeter glazed sauce...

    Spare VS Baby Back Cook Times

    I smoked one rack each tonight of Spare and Baby Back. I smoked the spares for 6 hours and smoked the baby backs for 5 hours. 225 degrees the whole time. My spares has nice pull back and we’re perfect. However, the baby backs didn’t really have much pull back and seemed like they could have...

    Pulled Beef and Pork, and Ribs for the family

    My family (7 adults and 2 kids) is going to Blue Ridge for an extended weekend, and we've divided meal duties amongst different family members. As fun as it would be to run my 18.5 WSM at our cabin rental, I don't think it would outweigh the pain of traveling with it in a Prius. I decided to...

    Spare Rib Saturday

    Had a couple racks of spare ribs that I bought on a sale a while back for $1.49/lb. Have a home project I'll be working on this afternoon so I figured why not get something on early this morning and have it for a mid afternoon meal. Trimmed the ends and the flap, but left the tips on the rack...

    I have been dying to smoke some ribs on the Lang. This is my second time using it. I went to the store a few days ago & was looking for BB's, but they didn't have any that looked to good. I found a rack of ST. L's and they looked pretty good, so I bought them. I injected them with some Creole...
