Did My first ribs on the MES on Thur. Was real happy how they turned out. Rubbed overnight: Cooked them at 235 and they are ready to take out: Just before cutting the first rack: Plate full: Pic to show smoke ring but not sure it shows very well. Read somewhere about putting one piece of charcoal in the firebox with some wood will give a smoke ring. Seemed to work this time even if the line was thin. All in all our guests where very pleased with how they came out. Makes me a happy BBQ'er. thanks for looking.
