Wow what a day! 1st time smoke and the results were way beyond amazing. I had a little trouble after a few hours because I didnt use enough charcoal. I used 2 big hunks of hickory and it worked out perfect.Had to add another chimney of fuel which helped the temp. Brisket @11am. Wrapped in foil @ 4pm. Took off @6 . Kept in foil, towel, microwave to hold. Sliced it up @ 730. Came out excellent. Tasted way better than I hoped. nice hickory flavor. Perfect smoke ring. Tender as hell. Made my own BBQ sauce and added any drippings.

Ribs were rubbed . Added a generous amount of brown sugar. On grill @ 2:40. sprayed with apple juice a couple of times. Foiled @6pm. Opened foil and added a little BBQ sauce @7pm. 7:30 back on grill for 15 min. Came out great. Fallin off the bone when I cut them. Probably will go with baby backs next time. Overall a great meal . Fed 7 people and they were raving.
Thanks to all you guys on here because i got a lot of ideas, and I was on here throughout the day reading everyones smoke adventures. Cant wait til next time. Probably doin a pork butt.

Good lookin' eats right there! Much better than my first attempt, that's for sure. You're gonna love that WSM, it's a great little cooker.

Looks like you had a good first run. Congrats! Keep reading and using your WSM and you'll be a pro before you know it.
