new to smoking but think I'm going to love it

  1. I am a dang good bbq guy but now I'm trying my hand at smoking. Got the little R2d2 Brinkman charcoal smoker. I'm just learning the art, trying to learn the lingo. What is the spray people spray on there ribs and why, how often? I live in the Seattle area, learned to bbq when I lived in Texas. I am an over the roadthe road truck driver, so my time at home is often spent trying things on my new smoker. I have seen some ideas for improving my little smoker, going to try them this week.

    I don't spray anything on my ribs or anything else as a matter of fact! I used to but never really saw any results from it, just a loss of chamber temp whenever I did but that's just my opinion and there are many on here!
  3. I did sign up for 5 day course, got day two in my email today. Is his recipe for the rub and sauce really that good, thinking of getting it tomorrow when I get home

    Spraying moisture over the meat is called spritzing and this can be what ever you choose; water, apple juice, Captain Morgan, etc or a mixture of your choices. It can add some taste to the product you are spritzing, but is mostly used to try and keep the product you are smoking from drying out.
