    Hey Everyone,

    I'm pleased and grateful to become a part of community of smokers. I live in McHenry, Illinois and looking forward to learning as much as I can. I have a Wrangler Chargriller and am planning to buy a side fire box. Looking for apple wood chunks online I ran into this forum. I always wanted to try smoking ribs, but had so many questions about how to go about it. I knew that most cook books out there would only give me half the info I needed to start smoking meat, so this is a blessing to find this forum. I always find the best way to learn something is not through some book, but through other peoples experiences. So with that thanks everyone for all the great advice.

    Hey arjona,

    Like some one already said, the 3-2-1 method is the way to go for ribs. You can adjust the numbers for your personal taste and to the thickness of your ribs, I personally like babybacks. I have been doing 3-1.5-.5 and it has been working good for me on my smoker. The numbers arent as important as the process. Smoke, foil, baste. Try it and you will never go back. Oh, and by the way....... this stuff is totally addictive so be prepared.
