Just got done serving my first attempt at ribs of the spare kind. Everyone raved!!! Next time i will use the 3-2-1 method. I used the EXACT directions off Jeff's suggestions along with his rub and sauce (on the side of course). I think the 3-2-1- method will produce an even juicier rack. I really stressed out about the 'hot spot' and actually lost a few of the ribs due to this phenomenon but all in all it was a very good smoke for my first attempt. If any of you *ahem* Old Timers have any suggestions, i will be more than thankful for your input.
