Default First ribs on OTS.

Hello, bought a weber OTS several months ago and have not touched my gas grill since. I have been following this site a bunch. I like using my grill as a smoker also. I have done about 6 chickens and a turkey breast. I tried doing some spares on Sunday. They turned out pretty good I thought........not going to win any competitions but still good. I didn't trim the ribs but I think I will next time. I also put a little too much rub on one rack. I have attached my cook log and some pics. I never really got to the range of 225 like I wanted, I mostly stayed around 240-250. A good learning experience all together. Can't wait to do it again.

Here is the log:

Two slabs of spare ribs, not trimmed, 5lbs and 4lbs.
4 fist sized chunks of pecan wood
banked 50 unlit coals to one side and added 8 lit coals

11:30 - put ribs on grill. Grill temp 220, temp dropped to 167

11:50 - temp 215

12:05 - temp 232, closed vent 1/4

12:20 - temp 250, closed vent 1/2

12:35 - temp 251, closed vent 3/4 , not seeing much smoke

12:50 - temp 238, opened vent just a little

1:00 - temp 255, closed vent back to 3/4

1:05 - temp 242

1:15 - temp 248, seeing a little smoke again

1:20 - temp 246

1:35 - temp 241

1:50 - temp 239

2:05 - temp 240

2:20 - temp 241

2:35 - temp 246

2:50 - temp 237

3:05 - temp 220, added 8 unlit coals, swept ashes

3:20 - temp 220, added 5 unlit coals, opened vent 100%

3:30 - temp 258, closed vent back to 3/4

3:40 - temp 240, applied sauce

3:50 - temp 226, applied more sauce

4:05 - temp 233, opened vent 100%

4:20 - pulled ribs off the grill

It is pretty damn hard to get my Weber Kettle to be steady at 225 but tt will do 275 all day long on very little fuel.

Those bones look good to me, I would kick 225 to the curb and cook where the kettle wants to run.

Very true! 275 is a good temp for ribs.

Thanks for the comments, I am going to graduate to a WSM in a few months. Until then I will try some more ribs and some butts.

Looks good to me! It's best to find what temp your cooker likes to run and let it do it. There is no right temperature!!!
