Gonna try to cook 'em up Johnny Trigg style.....actually Johnny Clay style. He's the one that schooled me on the power of the wrap. I'd never used foil for anything....nothing. I took foolish pride in that. After taking his advice, though, my ribs have never been better.
Now, I'm all about the results. If foil gets me there.....then so be it. :cheers:
Fired up the lump at 9:00am. I'm sold on the Wicked Good brand. Huge chunks that burn evenly and yield consistent temps throughout.
After the fire took, I closed it and rough adjusted the dampers.
Thirty mins later the dome temp was holding at 250. The rub was glazing nicely, too.
I dropped in some chunks of hickory and apple wood.
I set the smoking stone and water tray in place along with the gratings. I foiled the smaller top rack where the smallest slab went.
Two larger slabs fit on the bottom with my Temp probe between them.
