Is it important for your meat to have a smoke ring?

    I smoked some Baby Back ribs on my 18' WSM yesterday but I noticed that they didn't have any smoke ring on them. I smoked them at 225 for 5 hours with three chunks of apple wood and one Oak but not a sign of any ring. Does the smoke ring make your meat have that smokey flavor?  If so, how do I achieve it when I smoke?

    Yep, like Adam said.... Just for looks ! But it does seem to get quite a reaction from folks when it's there !
