Default 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.
