Dropped the smoker off at my in laws. They had ribs and butts ready and waiting.

And now for the first Q-vision...

Naked ribs. Melted off the bone.

15.5 hours at 180 degrees. Not super tender but it had great flavor all the way through.

I'm sure it tastes great. You have me wondering about temperature. A few posts back it sounds like you wanted to get hotter than 224 then you said you cooked this at 180. I know Pete said he likes 250. I believe 225 to 250 will work. But if I cook an pork Boston Butt knowing its got to reach 200 internal temperature, I must cook it above that temperature. I typically cook them at 225/240 until 160 then wrap in foil and finish at 200. The process takes abou 8 hours, and they are juicy as can be.


Making memories.

I agree on the temp too low. The long excessive long smoke will create dry ribs every time. Also notice the smoke ring is. It real deep....a little more fire should cure this too.

My ribs take 5 ish hours at 240-260....id turn up your temp a bit.

I didn't personally cook this time. Actually, I'm not the cook in house, I really have no idea what I'm doing unless I'm burning metal. My Fiancée is a chef/manager at the one of the local fine dining establishments/ BBQ dives. (Same kitchen, but two different restaurants.) even still, I was out of town when these were done. I will pass on the words of wisdom. Who knows maybe you might have some influence at the restaurants as well. Lol.

I am just now learning that she didn't have anything to do with these either. Her parents were the artists of those photos.

I'm so confused.

It's kinda like a typical episode of Magnum,PI. I'm waiting for T.C. to fly Thomas over the crime scene.

One more commercial and we will all be shown the true events.

Sorry for the (very) delayed explanation. The smoker was a gift to my Fiancee’s father. The family jokes that the smoker is a dowry. Once I brought it up north for them I had to keep traveling for work and they ended up breaking it in without me. It’s become their hobby and pet project now. Meat.
