Glad to hear things turned out ok for ya...
What kind of smoker do you have? Is it an electric one?
Trying to figure out how it took two hours to get up to 200*...are your thermometers accurate?
BTW.. Welcome to the forum..
Hi Charlie, sounds great. I tried my first ribs two weeks ago using Jeff's Naked Rib Rub and it was great. I did not do the 3-2-1 but am planning on that next. I smoked mine for 7 hours at 230-240 degrees on my BGE. I just calibrated the thermometer yesterday and found out I was reading high by at least 30 degrees! Anyway, took a little longer than I anticipated but still awesome. I will look forward to your pics.

Good smokin,
Good for you Charlie. Looking forward to the pics.
