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.

congrats on a successful first smoke.

next time, you'll get the coal management planned out better and it will be even easier..

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.
