Back to the basics

Lately I have been doing a lot on my stick burner, trying to chase the elusive post oak brisket that is so popular these days. But today I decided to go back to where it all started - spare ribs on the 18.5" Weber kettle. I haven't smoke anything in the Weber in probably a year but it was funny I immediately fell back into the rhythm of setting it up and fine tuning the air intake. Today made me realize that sometimes I tend to over complicate the whole smoking thing and it felt good to get back to the basics. More Q-view to follow when they are done!

Looks great!

My Weber kettle is my go-to grill. I cook on it 3-4 times a week when the weather is nice. Once you get proficient with them, there's not much you can't do with them..

I agree pit 4 brains, they are awesome. Lately I have been using my propane grill for cooking steaks and salmon and what not during the week. But I'm in south Texas and this time of year I try to minimize my time out in the sun!

Your ribs look delicious!

Can't beat the old stand by, Weber kettle.

I even had one that had a BBQ Guru set up on it.

One more thing on getting back to the Basics

Every so often I get out my old ECB and do a smoke
