My first shot at smoking was not all that I expected. I chose a rack of spare ribs. Got the smoker going and off I went. 1 st problem- I could keep my fire consistent so that was a pain. It would got to 300. Down to 175. Well I finally got it cooked after approx. 7 hours. Looked great, juicy and all that. I did it dry, no sauce. Sat down to eat, it was just OK. After bout 2 ribs in, I got overwhelmed with salt. 2nd problem- did NOT like rub or sauce.as I hate to admit it, it was store bought Corky's BBQ rub and sauce. Terrible!! So that just turned me off of the whole experience. Depressed right now.....
