I want to try some spareribs next. I think they will be even better. The country style are a little to 'porky' for me. Good to start out with though, I feel more comfortable for round 2. Didn't know how my smoker was going to perform.
I need to get some ribracks, what I'm using is only 16in.
I used hickory wood and made up a rub of the recipes that were on here. It was basically what I had in the cupboard. Lemon pepper, garlic powder, paprika, black pepper, salt, cayenne. I think that was it. Coated with mustard, put on the rub, through them in for 3-2-1 pretty much. I pulled them off with tongs and it wasn't easy, they were literally falling apart.
I think it was 7 pounds of ribs and I had about 5 pounds of grease in the water pan :lol:
My Dad gave me some venison steaks and ground meat. I think I want to try to whip something up with that soon also.
Anyway, thanks a lot and I love this new hobby! Hopefully I will get a lot of use out of this thing and we will be eating good this Summer :D
