Good Evening from Tennessee

Howdy folks! My name's Mike, and as the username and title suggest, I'm from Tennessee (Nashville, TN). I've been smoking now for about a year. I've got a Brinkmann box-style charcoal smoker that I modified with a gas burner BEFORE I found out about the GOSM Big Block - go figure (cost about the same, too). I've had good luck with smoking butts and turkey breasts, but my spareribs have been coming out very tough. I look forward to reading and sharing my experiences where appropriate. Thanks, and happy smoking!

can i advise or offer a suggestion- smoking ribs.. on the heat(depending on the heat & the meat)30 mins each side-i flip every 15 mins to keep juices running(thats grilling)then move off the heat to the smoke-1 to 2 hrs(i don't do temps i watch the color) never ever use a fork to turn meat.baste or spritz every 30 mins. if this ain't a competition(even if it is),and you have time- covered oven or cover in smoker on 220ish for 45 mins- thats fall of the bone done.yer looking @ 3.5 hrs to 4 hrs tops- even for comp- ya got 'er done ....
