First Time Smoking

Discussion in 'Pork' started by jcasteel, Feb 19, 2012.

  1. I got a WSM last week and fired it up for the first time yesterday. I smoked some baby back ribs for about two and a half hours and then finished it on the grill for about 20 minutes and basted it with sauce. They turned out great. I was really happy and surprised that the first thing I smoked turned out that well...

  2. They look good to me.  It usually take me about 6 hours for spares and 5 hours for baby backs.  Congrats on your success.

    Those are some speedy ribs.  Usually takes twice as long.  Look great, though.  Congrats.

    Pic looks great!

    I agree it seems a little short on time?  How did you monitor your pit temps?

    Good luck and good smoking.

    They sure look good! Your smoker temp must have been over 300 to get them done that fast.

  12. I kept my smoker at about 250. I based my time off how I used to do ribs before I got a smoker -- 250 in the oven for about 2 hours then finish on the grill. I would have liked more time, but hungry mouthes were waiting. I am deffinitely addicted now though. Goign to fire it up again this weekend and go for a different cut of meat.
