    Decided at the last minute to smoke some ribs and chicken. 3 racks of baby backs and two whole spatchcocked chickens. To test out the new smoker I am doing two racks 2-2-1, the third I'll just keep dry. Light citrus rub on the chickens.

    May back down on the 2 hours in the foil next time, will decide after tasting. They're literally falling apart. First chicken off the smoker, the second one is lagging slightly...

    This is the rack that was only rubbed, going to mop itwith some of the jus that came from the foil sauce.

    And of course one of the chickens....

    Tried to keep it around 250, but I'm still trying to learn this smoker.

    My wife just said these are the best ribs she's ever tasted. A vote like that from her is always good, not because she has the most discerning palate, but because she'll let me keep experimenting! Lol

    After tasting, I prefer the texture of the nekkid ribs, but the flavor of the ones that were in the foil. Next time I'll shorten the foil portion by half and see how it works.

    Btw, thanks to jj for the foil sauce. It's amazing!
