edited 6:09PM in EggHead Forum
I'm getting ready to smoke both and This is my first time. Can you say GREEN, That is me. I have a few question:[p]1) At what temp. do I need to keep my smoker at.
2) How long to I need smoke each.
3) I'm looking for a injector, not for these but other projects, Where can I get one that is pretty cheap. (Wal-Mart or KMart)[p]I already have the beverage of Choice for the days events.[p]Any other suggestions that you can give would be helpful. Thanks to everyone. This is a great site for beginners and experts to get together and help this great past time.

    Double J, I have never tried to both together, but based on the method selected for doing the ribs it should work. [p]Ribs - 3 hours at 325-350 degrees. This was my first attempt at ribs. I found the method on Tim's site. [p]Tenderloin - about 37 minutes at 350 degrees. The polder read 165 degrees when it was removed from the BGE.[p]The ribs were done indirect and the tenderloin was done direct - you might consider going direct the last 40 minutes on both or possible keep shielding the ribs and doing the tenderloin direct. Sounds like a great combination. Good luck![p]Lnks to pictures:

    Double J,
    Welcome! I assume you mean pork tenderloin??? They do very nicely cooked at 350-375 direct over the coals. Flip every 15 minutes or so until polder reads 145-155. [p]Several ways to cook ribs. The recipe section has several ideas for cooking ribs. TimM's website is the information I had for my first babybacks, and they were great. 225-250 direct for 3-4 hours, or 275-300 indirect for the same amount of time will get you some good hog-sicles.[p]I got an injector at bed bath & beyond...or maybe linens and things. Any kitchen/home store should have them.[p]Enjoy your beverages and your cooking. Just yeall if you need anything.
