Hello all from the newbie. I'm new to smoking and forums. I've never smoked meat before and could use some advise. I'm currently stationed in Germany and can't get my hands on any Mom and Pop's pit BBQ. Being an Okie my craving got the best of me and I broke down and purchased a propane Smoke Hollow smoker. It looks like a big safe, with a water holder and wood case. It came with no instructions so I did some Googling and came up with a rib rub. I rubbed the ribs down and also through on a pork butt. I kept the temp at 200 degrees and it smelled like I was making some mouth watering ribs and sandwiches. I checked them at the three hour point and everything was charcoal. Not wanting to make the same mistake can anyone tell me what I did wrong?
