Rookie Adventure

Discussion in 'Pork' started by lobo, Mar 17, 2007.

  1. Today was the first time to use my new Masterbuilt Electric Smokehouse. After doing a lot of reading on the forum, I was ready to take the plunge. Bought four slabs of pork spare ribs (Kroger had them on sale[​IMG] ) Two for now and two in the freezer. Rubbed them down with some rub I had made awhile back and into the fridge overnight. Using the 3-2-1 method posted here, I have to say....WOW!!! Really tender and juicy. I did not get the pink smoke ring, but they had just the right amount of hickory smoke flavor.
    Anyways, thanks for everyone who has contributed to this forum. It made a Rookie's first smoke a success!![​IMG]

    They look great to me. Sometimes I don't get a smoke ring on ribs. I think it's because they are so thin the ring goes all the way thru and just make the meat look kind of pink.
  5. Looking good there Lobo... Pass some over here....yummy[​IMG]

  12. Thanks to all for the positive reinforcement. Makes a rookie want to take on more smokin' adventures.

    Now if I can just remember to spray the racks with Pam or something the next time and open the vent a little more to better the steam vent. I had water leaking out the front bottom during my smoke.
