I'm new to the site, but have been smoking for over a year now. I've found my new Hobie. I'm going to do a couple racks of ribs today. Going to use Burt's butt rub and the minion method. This will be my first time trying this method. Wish me luck!!!! By the way I'm Nick.
Luck !!!!   and welcome Nick, let us know how it turns out and be sure and post some pictures

This place has more info and recipes than any other bbq site I have found, the people are great too. I have a whole packer brisket on my weber kettle. Good luck using the minion method, it's a good method. Smoke on!
I'm almost 1 hour in. Got the grill up to 225 before putting ribs on. However it took a good half an hour & more fuel to get back up to temp. Right now temp is 238 closing off the dampers to help get back to 225. I'm using a char griller with the fire box.
Two hours in. I just brushed on apple juice with a rosemary and thyme brush. Here is a pic. In 40 min going to rap and back they go for another 2 hours.
Yes just wrapped. Temp stayed between 230 & 240 for the first 3 he's. I opened my dampers a little when taking off to wrap and once put on temp reaches 249. Closing down the dampers now!

In the last hour of my first attempt of the minion method. Temp was holding @ 225 for around 15 min. Now has gone up to 230 and holding. 40 min to go!!!

Those ribs are looking good. Thanks for the pictures.

I am looking forward to more of your posts.
