I've got 5 racks to smoke tomorrow, so I'm going to try some 3-2-1, some rubbed with mustard and my favorite rub and some with just rub to see if I can note a difference. In bad experimenting form, I'm also trying lump charcoal for the first time tomorrow. I've been told it burns hotter and cleaner and will help me maintain a good temp. I'll find out. I'm also smoking some venison, so hope that goes really well. I'd like to smoke the venison with some mesquite, but will probably stick with the hickory I'm going to use to smoke the ribs. I've only got so much time before the big game! I'm hoping it goes well. I'll let everyone know.
