Today I tried a piece of meat I have bought before at Sam's - boneless ribs. Examining, it looks like it is simply spare without the bones - I think called St. Louis style without the flap. I rubbed with a commercial pork rub - forgot the name - and wrapped and placed in refrigerator for about 14 hours. I used my cast aluminum Portable Kitchen using indirect heat. My PK has 2 dampers on the bottom and one on the top - newer units have 2 on top. Cooking surface is approx. 20 x 14 so it is farly easy to do indirect. I used Kingsford Mesquite briquettes and will probably not buy them again - too long to get started and just does not provide any smoke once in the pit. One chimney full, good and grey all around, and piled on one side of the pit on a grate that sits about 2 inches above the bottom. I closed the bottom damper on the opposide side of trhe coals and closed the one under the coals about half way. The top damper is now directly above where the meat will be on the opposite side of the coals. Immediatly, the pit got to 375. I have a old smokey thermometer and set it in the damper so the probe sticks in about 2 inches. I got it cooled down to 275 and put the meat on with a pan of water under it. Heat shot up again so I started closing the bottom and top. Could not seem to get lower than 275 for about 2 hours. Threw some mequite chunks in - they had been soaking for about 2 hours. After three hours, I pulled the meat off - wrapped it in some foil with some marinade and refueled - again - the heat soared and I had a heck of a time getting it down. After two hours, I opened the foil to find a lot of fat and juices - I knew then that this would be a tough piece of meat. Potatoes were not quite done so I let it go another hour (probably a huge mistake - right). What was good - flavor was great - very tasty. What was bad - pretty tough in some places - other places OK. Looking back: heat too high wrapping probably not necessary no basting done potatoes need to be secondary concern not the best cut of meat, but should have been adequate. If anybody took the time to read thru this - please give me your suggestions.
