Well, I am brand new to smoking. I have been grilling for years, but have never smoked anything. Today will be my first attempt. My son and I bought a small Char-Broil smoker yesterday and today we will attempt to smoke some baby back ribs. Any tips anyone has will be much appreciated, especially concerning the temp. of the meat. I bought a meat thermometer, but I am not sure what the temp should be for when the ribs are done. I will be using hickory wood with mixture of charcoal. Does that sound right? I am so glad I found this fourm and I look forward to learning from everyone here. Thanks, Rick.
