    Well, here is my first cook on the new offset. Beef back ribs.

    Seasoned. Salt and pepper.

    1 hour in, had to peek and see how much rain was sitting in the bottom of the cooker. Only a little, but it was coming down hard for a bit there. Eeek! A tweak to the intake damper and the offset continued to chug along at 250.

    2 hours in. Foil time.


    I cooked them to fall off the bone since that's how everyone likes it. I was having some back problems so I did the 2-4 method I guess. 2 on smoke, 4 in foil @ 250. Very tender, great flavor. I wasn't thinking and sliced them with a bread knife. It was the first knife I grabbed and I went with it so it looks a little torn up, but hey it's tender!

    I used a combination of charcoal bricks and ash wood. It was the most wonderful, and relaxing cook I've done so far. If it wasn't for the rain I probably wouldn't of even had to touch anything for 4 hours. Very impressed with the offset, very disappointed in my low back though. *ouch*.

    Can't wait to fire it up again!

    Thanks for looking!!

    Thank you very much! I wanted to get them out of the foil for a bit at the end but.. Life happens and that's BBQ! We had a little left over so we slapped it on some sandwiches with horseradish. Yummy.

    An offset that my wife and son got for me. It was cheap but I am just tickled to death to have it. Still keeping my UDS but this thing was really fun to use!

    Thanks again all! It worked out pretty good for sure. I noticed a little bit of cracking in the paint on the top of the firebox already. Oh well, burn it a few more times, sand, paint, repeat until it's junk. Then bolt/weld on a new one (old propane tank or something). [​IMG]

    Next up is something I've grilled a lot, but I've never smoked before. Salmon for my wife's birthday. I've peeked around on the forums a little bit, but some more peeking is in order I believe.
