    First go around at smoking ribs last weekend I learned a lot about my Weber Kettle and intend to put that knowledge to use today with my second try at smoking some loin back ribs.

    Last Saturday when cooking the ribs I used a foil pan under the meat as a drip pan and also filled it with hot water to use as a heat sink.

    I was using the snake or ring of fire method with the charcoal and used way to few briquettes in the ring.  The ring was 2x1 halfway around with only 8 or so to start the fuse.

    The water in the pan kept the temp stable but with me being a n00b and the small amount of charcoal in the ring even with the vents wide open it took me about 2 hours to get the temp up to 225.

    It's definitely a learning process!

    Here's a shot of the rubbed up ribs:

    Hope to get them on in a few hours.  Thanks for lookin!
  2. They should be good. Keep the pics coming.

    Happy smoken.

    Here we go!

    Gonna try to stay between 225-275. Ideally on the low end but still learning the Kettle's fluctuations so I'm leaving leeway.
  4. I can see your off to a great start. Looking good. CF

    Thanks guys!

    I didn't foil last week so I figured I'd experiment with that and see what Mrs. Carbine's preference is.

    These look better than last weeks ribs, pretty excited to see the final product. :grilling_smilie:
