Found this sight while searching for tips. The info here really helped me out and it came out great. I used a Brinkman Gourmet and can't wait to do ribs next week. Maybe I'll post some photos once I figure out how.

Glad we could help you, Loanshark!

Good to have you aboard! How about filling us in on a few more of your details. I am sure there is a lot more to your screen name and that super avatar than you have given up so far!

Cheers!

Glad your butt came out good. There's more to come ... Did you use a rub, a spray, mustard? Hickory, mequite, apple?

Here's more details... I started at 8 am, used hickory chunks and added applejuice to the water pan. It started off great but temp fell by around 9:45. Added more lump charcoal and left for 2 hours for church. When I checked again at noon the fire was out, so I restarted the fire and kept it hot until it was done around 2:30. Sliced it up and had it for dinner. Can't wait to do it again!
