Winner of the
Memorial Day Battle 2011
My first smoke of the year. Had quite the time getting our hands on some ribs as people love to buy em all up around the holiday weekends. Being my first cook of the summer fair to say I missed a few key points. More on that later.
So this is where things got a little dicey… My thermometer batteries died. I forgot the water pan and didn’t add it until about halfway through the cook. I planned on using the minion method for the smoking and put the lit coals in first and the unlit ones on top (good thing I didn’t have the meat on, it would have been a disaster). In the end I got everything under control. The takeaway? Use a cooking log, seriously… Enjoy the pictures!
