First burn on new rig, some pron.
Weekend before last I brought home a new rig, a Horizon 20". I did the first real burn in it today, pork spare ribs. 6 hours @ 225-250 using lump, cherry, a little Bradford Pear, and a little oak. Turned out pretty good! Still had a little bite to it texture wise, but pulled from the bone clean as a whistle. I'm still getting adjusted to heat control with the stack and fire box dampeners. The pics make it look burnt IMO, but I assure you it isn't. Used a Texas style rub we like from Kroger, brown sugar, a touch of garlic & onion powder, and some seasoned salt. The last hour it was basted with Sweet Baby Rays sauce which we really like.

Good smoke ring. Yes it does look a little dark but photos can distort. The taste test it the ultimate test. If you enjoyed it then its a winner.

Looks pretty good! :thumb:

Some woods will produce a darker color and sometimes the camera does that as well.

Good temperature control will come with practice. "You didn't think it was gonna be that easy, did you?"

Thanks gang. And honestly... I'm surprised I was able to keep it between 225 & 250! I can easily bring the heat down, it's making it shoot up that takes longer it seems. Oh well, that's half the fun is the tinkering LOL!
