So, last week I posted and commented on my first few sessions with my new birthday present and realized it was all seafood or chicken. I had to get the swine and red meat off the list (change of plans from the scamp). Anyway, I did a few delmonico's and they were awesome! Next time I will go hotter and put in a rest period before finishing. On Sunday, did baby backs and let em have 24 hours in the fridge with dry rub, got the egg settled around 250, went classic with Hickory chips and got things rolling. Had plenty of smoke for the first couple hours but seemed to loose smoke. I stoke up temp a little and that seemed to help but again loss smoke when I droped temps. Any advice would be appreciated. Anyway, pulled the ribs off at 3.5 hours and let em rest in foil and warm cooler, then finished em off for 45 mins at 350ish.
Had a nice gathering of friends and family and eveyone enjoyed and raved about the ribs. In the end dont think they needed more smoke flavor but had wanted to give them more through the process.
