    Hi everyone,
    I'm a new arrival to this forum. I've smoked homemade sausages in a homemade gas fired smoker, but am just learning the fine art of bbq smoking. I use a Weber style kettle smoker. It did a great job on a pork shoulder over Memorial Day weekend. That went into Brunswick Stew and pulled pork sandwiches. Thanks to Jeff and his 5 day course, the results were fantastic. That was the first time I used a water pan in a grill. Now I'm looking forward to doing babyback ribs. Any tips from you pitmasters out there?
    Regards to all,

    Richard one tip that took my pulled pork from good to awesome was to use Flaquer's finishing sauce. You will find a link for it under the pork section (i believe it is a sticky) Try it and you will not be disappointed

    Welcome Richard -

    Use the 3-2-1 method for ribs - but remember it's a guide the 3 might end up being 2 hours instead of 3. Don't forget to wrap the ribs for two and unwrap for the 1. Spray with apple juice every hour or so and don't forget to remove the membrane! Good Luck!
