hmm. Rube clams says jam it in there. Smoking Vet Mikey says don't. welp clear as day decision here fellas.

sure follow his advice.   knock yourself out.   MANY recommend the bend or bone twist because the bones in ribs screw with accurate readings.  Especially for novices who don't know how to place the probe.   You will also find that the temp of the meat varies from one end to the other due to variance in thickness and meatiness.

just because I hadn't done it doesn't mean I don't know a lot of people who do, and didn't spend most of the week before reading up on it.


:lol: easy there Mikey. Just giving you a hard time. We're all friends here in the smokehouse :cheers:

I'll read about some things more and decide between this method, or the 3-2-1 way.

4) 2 hours at 225ish degrees in the smoking Brinkman. (I like a little moisture too, so I add one inch of merlot to the water pan - water will do too!)


Water in a smoker is only for temperature regulation not moisture, flavor, etc.

yeah, not sure why he would waste wine on it.   I do use the water pan both for the heat sink properties but also to catch the drippings.

looks good, I like to go to 195 myself but that can take a while.

ya, my goal was 190. But i ran outta fuel, which delayed time and i just said screw it at 12 hours. It was getting too late. Will definitely be more prepared next time.

next time move it into your oven if you run into the same situation.  meat only takes smoke until 140 degrees after which you're just slow cooking it anyway.

left them on for about3 3:45 - 4 hours at 230 - 260.(maverick said 230, dome temp said 260. opposite of what happened last time where my maverick was running hotter. no idea whats going on)

then lathered them in BBQ sauce and put them back on for 45 min to an hour.

just hoping they are done. Bend test and toothpick seemed like they were. Will have pics after the [email protected] game...

They look perfect.  If you take it too far on "Fall off the bone" then they get mushy.   

Hardcore rib people want what you did.

I've always wanted to get meat from call hall and smoke it.  I remember it being pretty cheap.

Thighs are easy/fun to do. It's a pain in the dick when they catch on fire though.

i just buy a big plank from costco, so like 1 long one about 18 inches long or so.  prob weighs 2.5-3lbs.
it smokes fast so it's a good one to do on a sunday afternoon for dinner.
