    needed to do a little yard work...[​IMG]so figured I would fire up the smoker as well. working overnight I stopped by the store this morning at 7am and searched for some butt. Being the stupidity most meat markets are nowadays, I ended up buying a slab of pork ribs for only 10cents more a pound! they also had some nice turkey legs for just over a dollar and some change a piece so I snagged a couple of those.

I will update at each section. but for now... food a little qvision [​IMG]

    I could not reply to your PM....but as soon as you make quite a few more posts...your threads/q-views will show up immediately.  You are in the part of being a newbie and the "system" is still checking your posts and making sure you are not posting spam.  We know you are not doing that....but it's a Huddler thing.

    Here is a link to show you how to post pictures.  If your post is showing and the q-view is not.  Then you didn't upload the pics the right way for here. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/125263/how-to-upload-a-photo-q-view-to-your-post

    If you are using a cell, IPad or something mobile...go to the main front page of the forum and click the mobile button and you will be golden.

    Well here is the outcome....Sleep deprevation got the better of me once I had finished my yardwork. My original plan was to run a 2.5-2-1 on the ribs. I fell asleep during the foil phase and ended up with a 2.5-3 instead. The ribs were way over done for my likeing. Once they cooled though they were ok. They didn't end up mushy but were definatly a fall of the bone consistancy. The turkey legs were good. Good smoke on everything even using cheap chips. I really would rather use chunk but this smoker just loves chips for some reason. Temps held awesome all day (225-235) and TBS was prominant for 3 hours using 2 pans of unsoaked chips. All in all a good day....but not perfect
