Just got my new WSM 18.5 Tuesday! So for my first cook I decided to smoke a rack of ribs! I rubbed them in cheap pork rub I got at the commissary just before I put em on the smoker. For the smoker I added approx 50-75 coals, 3 chunks of some apple chunks I bought at a local japanese homecenter. Then I poured a small bottle of Apple Juice in the water pan. After that I put 6 lit coals on there to get the heat going! Once the temp hit about 190 I threw the rack on. Once it his 225 I closed all 3 bottom vents to about 1/8". Left the house, came back 4 hours later and the temp was still at 250! AMAZING!!!
Pics to come!
4.5 Hours into it!

Here they are! They came out pretty good and the taste was pretty delicious!
