I smoked a few racks of baby backs for a little get together we had last night, it was my first time using my new MES smoker and I have to say I love it. I did have a slight problem getting the smoker temp lined out at first but it wasn't all that hard to settle in on a temp. Overall I think the smoker is great and easy to use, I did have to use an oven thermometer in the smoker because the one that came with the MES was off by about 30 degrees. The ribs were a hit with everyone that ate them. Thanks to all on here, I couldn't have done it without this great site! I rubbed down the ribs with some mustard and then used a store bought dry rub: I used the 2-2-1 method for these and I think they turned out awesome. During the last hour I did spray them with an apple juice/Captain Morgan mixture, which I think gave them some great flavor.
