ggee, I think that was my mistake, I started with water in the pan! Right after my first post I emptied the pan into a bucket. Bingo! Within 30 minutes, 275! That is where she stayed for the last 1.5 hours.
Well here goes nothing!
The ribs are prepped and rubbed
All snugly wrapped and ready for nap in the fridge.
The LS Vertical is wheeled out in the rain and a fire started. Wheels chucked for safety!
Ribs are out on the counter to warn up a bit before going on
The cabinet has been turned into the wind and we are ready for takeoff!
Two of the racks are cut and lunch is ready!
I pulled them off a little after noon. They are moist and tender, but I have done better! All said, if feels good to have my first cook under my belt and some pretty good ribs for us to eat. Learned a little while I was at it!
