First off, thank you to everyone on the forums for the help getting started. I've been cooking and grilling for a long time at a high level. I come from a family of amazing "competition winning" home cooks from Cuba. I became obsessed with learning how to smoke meats a few months ago. I have been off heat cooking for a long time. However its not the true craft of BBQ smoking. I knew I had to learn and the obsession began. It took me 4 months of research on these forums, and indecisiveness to finally reach this day of my first SMOKE!!!!! I decided to stick with something I know. Ribs. However, I went with St. Louis cut ribs which I never cook. I didn't want to waste the $$ if I bombed my first smoke HAHA. I already have a homemade rub recipe from my previous experiences grilling and oven baking ribs etc. I have to say thanks to everyone for the fast answers on here. First first Q-VIEW submission pics are finally here. ENJOY =). The ribs bit like a baby back rib. Like butter =).
