    1st Long Smoke On My SNS Kettle - St. Louis Ribs

    I had a friend over today for some football and thought I’d smoke some ribs and make a pot of pintos. I’ve always smoked them before on my WSM and wanted to do a long smoke on the SNS to see how I liked it. I’ll say this….I’m impressed enough that I’ll probably sell my little 14” WSM. It’s the smallest one they make, and you can only fit 1/2 a brisket or 1/2 slab of ribs on one grate. I don’t recommend the 14” WSM for someone as an only smoker. If I had it to do over, I would have bought the 18” at least.

    Anyway, I’ve had 22” Weber Kettles before and I still have one at Mom’s, but I’ll say this….for anyone who doesn’t have a kettle at all, go with the SNS. The additional features they have over a comparable Weber is well worth it. I really liked having the port hole to run my grate temp probe wire.

    I smoked a slab of Costco St. Louis cut ribs on the SNS today for 5 hours, using the SnS insert, B&B charcoal briquettes and 3 chunks of hickory. I used a tumbleweed off to one side of the coals and filled the water reservoir on the insert. After about 40 minutes I put the lid on and brought the grill to about 250*. After putting the ribs on I made a few adjustments to the vents and kept the temps around 250* to 275* for the whole cook.

    The ribs turned out great, just the right amount of smoke and tenderness. They weren’t fall off the bone, but had a little tug to them….just like I like em. I was also impressed with how much more cook time I could have done with the remaining coals in the SnS insert, I probably had at least 8 hours of cook time from the filled insert, if not more. Anyone wanna buy a used Weber Smokey Mountain?

              Very impressive cook. Even more impressive you have a friend, and one who will visit. And let you make a video of him for only $10.

              Just curious, how did they get the sofa down the basement stairs?

                You have a friend? Wait, that's Toothless Joe from under the river bridge down by where your van is parked. He said you paid him 2 1/2 bottles of Boone's Farm to make that video.

                Seriously though, the ribs look great. You and Eric seem to be enjoying the SnS Kettle, I'm impressed with my SnS Kamado so far. The SnS insert that I bought for the Weber I got from you is great too. We all have a lot of good cooks ahead of us.

                    Ribs look great. My only regret is going to bed early last night missing the chance to be first to call out your lie about having a friend.
