        Did some ribs on a drum smoker last weekend. For some reason the ribs never got any color during the cook. I used a little honey base with smoking guns sweet heat as a rub. I've done this combo multiple times and never had this issue. I wonder if maybe my drum was too moist. The ribs on the bottom rack got a little color, but the ones on the top got virtually no color at all. had to heavily sauce them to get a good color. Has anyone else ever had this issue? Some of the blandest ribs i've made yet. First picture is the ribs before they went on the grill and the 2nd is the finished product in the box.

              Very nice, Congrats CandySueQ! Do you always inject your Brisket?

              I have a problem injecting SRF gold! The brisket above is a Creekstone prime. I am not a good injector operator though. I've gone back to cooking more reasonably priced beef (our Walmart has some beautiful IBP Choice) and I do inject. Just bought a "power injector" from Butcher BBQ and I hope it will arrive before Friday.

            12th place brisket

            10th place overall -- my first top 10 finish this year!

            This contest had brutal weather -- wind gusts to 40 mph and 6+ inches of rain before it was over. I'm under a canopy and cooking with wood. Decided I won't be cooking again until the RV is back...

                    I'll try and help revive this thread. Headed into my first KCBS competition in 2 weeks, so I'm trying to sponge up as much info as I can. My first competition ever of any type was a little over a month ago in PA. It was more of a backyard style comp with simplified rules and categories: chicken, ribs and open (whatever you want to make) Here are my turn ins.

                    I took 1st in both Chicken and Open in a field of about 10 teams! I think I went a touch spicy on my ribs which I think is where I might have been dinged. My open entry was home-cured maple pepper bacon formed into bacon bowls and filled with elote (Mexican street corn) All feedback appreciated!

                    The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                    The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                    The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                    The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                    The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                    This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                    Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                    Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal.
