First time

  1. Ok guys and gals, this is my first time to cut down a rack of pork spare ribs into St. Louis style. That part went great, should of took some pics of the process to get feedback but forgot. Now I need to know if I cook the flat that came off the same as the ribs themselves? I'm going to be doing the 3-2-1 method on a Brinkman, first time to smoke ribs, (say a little prayer) but I plan on making burnt ends with the flat, which I've never done,(say another little prayer) so any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Dont waste that little chunk of goodness....that can be snacks for the Pitmaster later!  I would treat it like the ribs...but it wont take as long to cook.

    Good q-views!  Love ribs

  3. Ok thanks KathrynN, I definitely not gonna waste it, and that's how I was going to cook it, just wanted to make sure.

    Could be a puppy treat too if you have a "assistant pitmaster".  [​IMG]

  5. I do and she'll get hers also.[​IMG]

  6. Well my first smoking of ribs and some brats, everything turned out great, here are a few pics from beginning to end. Next time though I think I'll use the 2-2-1 method instead of the 3-2-1, I probably over  smoked them a little but they were still aesome. Next in line.....a brisket.

  8. No, I'm new to all this, maybe when I get better I might take it on.
  9. Ah ok - if you do you will end up with another habit  [​IMG]   You gonna smoke a whole packer or just part?
  10. I think with it being my first Brisket, I'll probably just smoke one part of it, that way if things don't turn out, I haven't wasted a whole piece of meat. Think I'll smoke the flat first and see how that goes. I know my Brinkman is an el cheapo but since I did the mods. to it it really works great, plus it was free.
  11. Sounds like a good plan & free smokers are great!  [​IMG]
