First ribs on the new WSM 22.5

  1. We'll today was the first smoke on my new WSM, and let me tell ya I LOVE IT. I should have bought one of these a long time ago. It was only 18 degrees out today so I was a little scared to even try it for the first time, but I went for it anyways.  I threw on some ribs, chicken wings, and some wicked beans. As cold as it was it held a rock solid temp for 7 hours until I shut it down. So here is some food porn for ya.

    Just getting started


    A little preveiw


    chuggin right along, more steam than smoke, very cold out


    Wings off the smoker first


    After 3 hours the beans are done


    Not the best looking ribs but they was awesome, could have trimmed them a little better


    Extra skirt trimmings cut up and frozen for the next batch of beans

    Nice job, everything looks great! You just can't beat those WSM smokers.
  7. You are so right Al, the wsm amazes me. I was so surprised at how quickly the temps recovered after taking the lid off, and how steady of a temp that thing holds. they was some of the best ribs I've done yet. Thanks every body

    So here is a question for you. Does smoking the beams really make a difference in the taste??
  9. Yes it does give it a great flavor, since I done it for the first time that's the only way I fix them unless I'm short on time

  13. Well bear we got lucky the big snow storm just missed us last time, we still got some though it just melted off when it rained the other day. It's the first time Ive seen grass in a long time

    Oh thats a mighty fine looking meal there. Yea whats the deal with all that green stuff on the ground???? I think I remember seeing some of that around here but that was months and months ago. haha

    I figured you'd still have some. We got 42" here in the last 6 storms, and I think there's still almost 2' left on the ground.

  16. We only had about 10" here, but I have a cabin up in the mountains and they got about 4 feet up there, so I won't be doing any trout fishing up there for a while

    Yepper everything looks good to me. Now it's not 18° outside but maybe 60° today and I have been smoking my big butt off today too.
