1st go with my new smoker!
« on: July 30, 2011, 02:19:55 pm »
I just received my new OBS the other day after many weeks of waiting...Thursday morning, I assembled the smoker and then seasoned it for a little over an hour.  After that I ran as fast as I could down to the local Costco ( all right, I took the car....but I ran from the parking lot ::)  Once I got home, I unwrapped my baby backs and seasoned them up with some Cahoot's House Rub and sent them into the fridge over night. I took the ribs out after 3 hours with some hickory
I then foiled them up with a splash of apple juice and then back into the smoker for another hour.  After an hour, out they came for a generous slathering of home made sauce.
Back into the OBS for another hour and then out for a brief second to rest.
Now it's time to plate it up with some wedge cut fries and baked beans....Couldn't wait for the beans to take the picture.  All in all, I think everything went well for the first try out the gate.  Kept a log of everything and hopefully will become more proficient with time.  Can't wait for next weekend!

Ghost,
I had to mess around with the settings on photobucket, but hopefully that solved the problems with the photos not showing up.  I guess it was just too much to learn in one weekend ??? First the smoker, ribs, photobucket and then posting.  I might have to take the rest of the week off and rest up for this next weekend :D

Thanks! Wasn't sure what to expect for the first time out.  I really loved how they came out, and my wife loved them even more.  Just a tad too much salt in the rub, though.  Have to work on less salt and more spice!

Good looking ribs. And the fact your wife likes them is a big plus.

Them is some might fine looking ribs Mike. It won't be long and you will have this whole thing figured out. You know your getting close when you come to the dinner table and the family asks "Have you taken pictures yet so we can eat? Were HUNGRY!!"

Ghost,
I think I had a private box checked in the photobucket that wouldn't allow me to export the pictures.  When I went back and checked, I undid the checked box and resubmitted the pictures and all seemed to work out!  Another lesson learned ::)
