Beef ribs on an Akorn Kamado

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by dogboy152, Jun 18, 2016.

  1. I've got about 5 or 6 lbs of beef ribs I bought from my butcher, but he cross-cut them...never seen that before, but I guess that's the way some folks do it up here in N/W Wisconsin.
    Anyway, I just got the heat deflector the other day, and I'd like to smoke the ribs tomorrow. This is my first attempt at smoking anything. I got a book by Chris Grove, but it doesn't answer all my questions.
    So, anybody have any ideas they might share?
    And, can I smoke as well with my setup as someone with a regular smoker?

    Might help to mention your set up pics are great as well! Got a plan to season them,what type of wood are you going to use,wrap or no wrap?

    Okay you mentioned the smoker my bad.:biggrin: It should smoke fine have you tried a low heat test run your best to get your temp settings under control.
  4. Thanks for your reply. I did a practice run yesterday before I put some burgers on the grill, and was able to control my heat pretty well.
    I have a pretty decent rub recipe, but I only have some mesquite chips and applewood chips, no hickory.
    Not sure what you meant by wraps. What temp would you recommend, and how much coal/wood should I pack onto the firegrate? Soak the wood?
  5. Well, here's how they look after 2.5 hrs at 250 degrees. Not quite ready according to the twist of the fork.[ATTACHMENT=2851]IMG_20160619_163450491.jpg (6,187k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]
