    I'm brand new to the world of smoking and this forum is a mind-blowing resource thus far.  In light of all of authentic, backyard smoke masters on this board I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I still have a soft spot for ribs/sauce from a chain restaurant called Houston's and I'd like to emulate the recipe at home.  Yep, chain restaurant, "knife and fork", baby-back ribs...pretty shameful on the surface, but they are just damn good.  Anyone else familiar with ribs that might have some tips for me?

    I have been a big fan of Houstons for a long time. There's 3 in Atlanta.

    Back in the early 90s the guy that owns Houstons was a huge customer of the HD dealer where I worked.

    Great guy. We had several company dinners there. Quite a few birthday and such meals.  Wonderful food and service.

    The ribs there are good.

    Once you get rolling with your smoker yours will be better.
