Completed my first smoke with my new MES40. I also used the new AMNPS which worked perfectly.

Started off with a few racks of baby backs from Costco rubbed em down and set them in the smoker set at 230 Deg

At about 2 hours and 15 minuted Foiled them

Back on in the foil

2 hours in the foil and I sauced them

They were delicious.... Thanks to this great forum for all the tips...

Any suggestions? Should I have trimmed them more before cooking?

I  learned something new today, Don't tell 2 many people that your smoking ribs because they just seem to find there way over your house!!!

Man! The exterior of those ribs look SPOT ON! Excellent first run brother!

My only concern would be the apparent lack of a decent "smoke ring"... but that could be due to the camera angle...

If they taste good to you, they ARE GOOD, and that what matters most!

Any way you slice them, I'm going to bump up your      
based on your creative screen name and the fact you posted up some good looking Q.View right off the start... Nicely done.
No smoke ring in an electric smoker. No flavor in the ring anyway.

Nice job there Wood. Looks real good.

Happy smoking.

My wife keeps asking what in doing on the computer all the time... I just tell her. "I'm looking at Butts!"
