  1. Got spare ribs on the smoker right now; thought this is a good place to get good advice. Look forward to learning more.

    You'll get the hang of it. What temp did you cook at? How long? What kind of smoker? What kind of wood? There are a lot of variables that can trip you up when smoking but with a little practice you can get them all in line and produce delicious food.
  5. Ribs can be a little tricky, You really have to keep an eye on them, Just learn from all your smokes, (gives you an excuse to smoke some more)

    Welcome to the Smoking  forum.   You’ll find great , friendly people here, all more than willing to answer any question you may have.  Just ask and you’ll get about 10 different answers—all right.  LOL.   Don’t forget to post qviews.

  7. Sorry For the late reply work got crazy. I cook at 225 for 3 hours then wraped them for 2 hours with apple juice and apple vinger cooked down with red crushed pepper. Then I put them back on the smoker for about 45 minutes. I have a master built electric smoker with hickory wood chips.

    Hmmmm I can't be of much help really since I have never wrapped ribs and I have a fire breather. I'm sure one of the electric guys that wrap will come around soon to give advice.

    A proud Moment.

    Folks please welcome my son Brennan to the forum!

    Those bones do look a bit dry son Next time just add the apple juice and maybe a bit more than you did this time.  We need to make a heat sink for your MES and that will help with those Temp Fluctuations.
