    Looking good... Just a FYI that temp gauge is gonna read hotter then it is in the cooking area near the meat.
    I have the same smoker and it can read 50 degrees hotter then it really is on the grate.
    Pick up a digi thermo at Walmart, Homedepot or Lowes, there cheap and worth the money. I first learned about them here and my cooking improved the first time I used one..

    Looks good but the slab sure looks lonely. There oughta be at least another slab there to keep it company or a pan full of my Wicked Baked Beans!! ( a shameless plug I know, but they are good!!)[​IMG]

    Dutch, you might have gave your beans that shamless plug, but I cant go to family get togethers without them. The family just love your beans recipe and I have passed it along to some co-workers and was told last week that they loved them too. So your beans are better than good in my book..

  5. Seaham358,

    Thanks for the tip, i will definatly check them out and get one, i see alton brown using them all the time on good eats, and been meaning to get one.


    You are correct. they were VERY lonely, but it was a trial rack as i made a new rub and that was actually the second time i did ribs on the smoker. the first time came out ok, but had no flavor. so i wanted to do 1 rack at a time from my case of ribs until i get my rub down, but let me tell you guys, i think that was the best rack of ribs i ever had in my life.

    my cousin told me how he does his, he smokes them for 4 hours (country ribs) then wraps in foil with apple juice for another 2 hours to steam internally. so i did it that way and they were amazing.

    unfortunatly my 7 year old son like spicey things and i only got 2 ribs, neighbor got 2, dad got one, and 7 year old ate the rest! [​IMG]

    Thanks guys, learning alot by reading up on everything here.

    Yesterday i did chicken thieghs, pork loin, hot italian sausage , and a pork butt, the butt finished this morning and i tried the finishing sauce . WOW!!! is all i can say . it was amazing.
