    Always get great feedback from you guys, so I want to thank you in advance.  First time to smoke ribs and fatties.  Brinkman Vertical. What is the ideal temperature for each?

    I usually smoke at 250º for pork butts and ribs. I like to smoke my briskets at 215º.

    I'm sorry, let me clarify.  I'm trying to get the ideal internal temp of the meat.??

    Oh ok, Ribs are more of a time cook than IT. It's difficult to get an accurate reading because of the bones, but if you could 

    get a good reading the IT would be 195º. Most folks use the bend test or watch for the pull back from the bones.

    Personally, i watch for about a 1/2" to 3/4" of pull back.

    The fattie would be 165º IT if your using sausage.
