First Smoke with Q-vue!

  1. Today is the day. Got my 22.5" WSM and all my goodies over a week ago. Just been waiting to get a day to fire things up.

    Smoking a 5 pound pork butt, 3 racks of ribs, and some ABT's.

    Got the butt in the smoker around 06:30. Plan to put the ribs in around lunch time, and have everything ready to eat at 6 tonight.

    I have been reading numerous post's and getting tips all week. Hope I can give the search button a little rest now. 









    More to follow as my day progresses.
     
  2. Got the pork to 163 and foiled to the bottom rack.

    Got the ribs and ABT's on now.

    Pork butt after 6 hours.

    Ribs on.
     
  3. Time to foil ribs.


    ABT's are done.

  10. The verdict is in, I'm hooked. Great pulled pork, and ABT's much better than propane grill.

    Ribs were ok, but I pulled them off to soon. They were not fall off the bone ready, but just a little tuff off the bone. 

    Did pretty much like a 2-2-1 method with them, but may need a 3-2-1 next time.

    All in all, bellies are full and happy.

  11. Glad to hear that, it is always when you have a happy belly!  Steve
     
  12. Always good, oops, my fingers are either faster or slower than my brain!  Steve
     
  13. Nice first run, all looks delicious.  I have found that 3-2-1 works best for me, I try to keep the temp around 235.
