Well I couldn't control myself I had to play with my new toy even before I had any meat ready to go in it. I fired it up this afternoon and ran it through a 1 hour cycle. It burns 1 puck every 20 minutes. The smoke was clean and gave off a nice fruity aroma because I was burning their apple puck. I was pleased with the quantity and quality of smoke although it took a little longer to get to temp (even empty) than I had hoped. On a second dry run it got up quickly. I think the trick it to set it high, then slow er down when it gets close to the 230 zone.
I have 2 racks of ribs in the fridge defrosting and think I will apply some rub tomorrow. Looks like Monday will be rib day. The beauty of it all is that I work from home and can put the ribs on early after noon and give them a 4 - 5 hour cook in time for dinner.
