Welcome. From this newbie to you, search the forum and you will find the answer. I have read threads here for hours and hours and never had a bad meal off my smoker. Everyone is very helpful.

For the ribs (I know this is alittle late) use Jeff's rub and the 3-2-1 method for your ribs and they will turn out awesome. I made some spareribs over the weekend and everybody raved. I should have bought the other 5#'s at the store. They went fast. I cooked them at 230º.

Welcome Dozer

Get the coals going reall good before you add the meat. Don't make fire make heat around 230-250 degrees. Keep a therometer in the smoker and the meat and check you temps often.

Don't add to much coal at once, when they get small add a few more. Keep the smoke light and thin.

Spray the meat with apple juice every hour or so.

and most of all have fun!
