Default My first ribs & Introduction

Hi, my name is Jennifer--I'm new here; this is my first post. I am new to barbecue and I am excited to be part of this community!

After doing a bit of research, I decided to go with a DIY Mini WSM (Weber Smokey Mountain) for my smoker--$105 total cost including the Smokey Joe; (I currently don't cook for more than 2-4 people at a time so its capacity is working for now.)

Here are my first smoked ribs ever; not savvy enough I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the sliced rib, lol -- it had a nice smoke ring though if you believe me :)



My second smoked ribs (I included a picture of the smoke ring this time!)--I couldn't find my basting brush and just used a spoon, so there were gobs of sauce here and there:



I seasoned both racks of ribs with Mike Mill's Magic Dust (recipe not store bought--if there is a difference). Glazed the first rack of ribs with Meathead's KC BBQ Sauce recipe and the second rack with a mix of Meathead's KC BBQ Sauce recipe & KC Masterpiece Original.

Here is my Mini WSM:



I smoked the ribs at around 250F using Hasty-Bake (Ozark Oak) Lump Charcoal, apple & pecan.

--Jennifer

Welcome to the party Jennifer! Always happy to have another Sistern here (you will figure out who we are).
Ribs look great, and the cooker is awesome, and you will soon be looking at other cookers... it just happens... you won't be able to help yourself.

Nice looking ribs!

And welcome. Just remember:

Great looking ribs. Welcome from Iowa. If you haven't been there Cattle Call is where we usually do introductions. I think this will past muster in Q-Talk with pictures of your cook and pictures of your equipment.

Did I mention we like pictures.
