    Got a rack of spare ribs ready and a batch of Dutch's beans. 20181205_114524.jpg

    Used Al's perfect rib technique, turned out pretty good. Didn't get the smoke ring I was looking for, oh well try-try again. 20181205_171023.jpg Beans are "fabulous" . Will certainly do again.

    Looks great Winterrider!
    I mixed some Dutch's beans with some Pulled Pork for dinner last night. :rolleyes:

    I "doctored" my batches of Dutch's recipe. 3 - 16.5 cans of Bush's Beans, + one of black beans (drained), and a cup of organic Maple Surple. Holy Mackerel, is that ever keepin them coming back!
    Plus this time, I had Home Cured BACON trimmings to use, instead of store bought bacon. Nothing like finding a nice chunk of smoky bacon in your mouthful to chaw on.
    I can eat a 17 ounce pint just by myself.
    Makes me Sir Poops a Lot :eek:

    Nice job!
    That is my favorite meal!
    And yours look delicious!
    If your using an electric smoker, you won't get a smoke ring.

    I think that probably is my deal for no smoke ring... 20181102_144216.jpg

    I think smoke rings are over rated.
    What does a smoke ring add to taste?

    Nothin.
    Nice set up Winterrider.
    Mine grew a 4.3 Cu Ft Curing and Beer fridge under it last week.
    I also have my nuts in it, and my Al's pickles.

    I thought about fridge underneath,but mounted Auber PID under front edge also. Didn't want to go any higher, little tippy. Can just pull hose off and re-install chip tube if wanted with this setup and all contained.

    You can try adding some charcoal to the pellets.

    I may just try that, thanks Richie.
    It's just an appearance thing I know. :D

    Yup. But mine isn't moved around, so no tipping factor.
    The OEM guts in mine were of no use to me, so I removed them and use my "Mailbox Mod" exclusively for my smoke.
    The guts are stored away. (Not sure why.)
    I do use the OEM water pan (dry) to help distribute the heat and smoke.

    I have a new PID, because I wrecked my Inkbird. So now I have a PID I can use with mine when I get it built into an enclosure. Much better range, much better control, many more possibilities.
    I used my MES 30 on it's 100° setting to sm00ken my Bacon. Worked fine. At the 4 hour mark the IT of my slabs was at 90°. So as long as below 100°, cold sm00ked.

    Mine is generally evolving, but you can see where it is at HERE.
